Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (Dover Thrift Editions) by Harriet Ann Jacobs
Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl (Dover Thrift Editions)

mlovesart, September 12, 2014

Aside from being a non-fiction account of the life of a slave girl, this book is engrossing and you just cannot stop turning the pages to find out what is going to happen next. I could not put the book down as the suspense to keep this girl safe from this relentlessly obsessed perverse man was always looming as she tries to stay hidden and live.

Geek Love by Katherine Dunn

I would recommend this book to the right reader- one who appreciates quirkiness and doesn't mind gasping a little. It's not nightmare inducingly horrific, but it does have a certain grotesqueness that some may not appreciate. In some parts, I felt it was a little contrived and that the writing could be choppy. Many laud the book for being well written, but hmmmmm...

Great book! Van Gogh was equally amazing with words as his was with painting. I really love this books, it puts you inside Vincent's mind.
