Kitty cats and books. What more could someone ask for? ‘Cept maybe a Gin and Sin. (alcoholic beverage, m’dears.)
Is the book I just finished reading today. It was great. Love the witty humor that was neither too old to be unrealistic for the main character, nor too young for adult readers like myself to enjoy. An amusing page-turner that is a quick read you wish there was more of. Cartoons and drawings only enhanced the humor and enjoyment of reading.
There wasn’t much scenery description until the very end (and that was limited), so it was difficult to create a concrete picture, but the dialogue and relationships, the emotions and thoughts of the MC, and the events happening kept me busy enough that I didn’t really need all the extra descriptions. It left my imagination room to create what I wanted without getting too involved with the unimportant stuff.
It was informative. There are quite a few details about the Native Americans in this book that are true, if not all of the details. It describes the sad situation that they are forced to live in, the lack of help they receive from the very people that said they were sorry for making their lives unhappy. I learned much, and I have a new understanding of how they live their lives.
Definitely a good read. Not completely for kids, but awesome for teenagers and adults alike. 5 out of 5. Received from World Book Night and I will hopefully be passing it on.
Finished the book Chainsby Laurie Halse Anderson. Fabulous visual language use. Every sentence formed a picture in my mind and dragged my whole attention and mind to the time era it is placed in. Not to mention, I actually learned something about the American Revolution thanks to the much better vantage point of a slave girl, than that of either a patriot or British soldier, whose opinions are usually biased. A fascinating tale that, unfortunately, left me with the surprise of a sequel. I can’t wait to read the next one, Forge!
Just finished the novel Martyn Pig by Kevin Brooks. What an astonishingly intense book. I got so wrapped up in the plot that I forgot the timeline of the book. Everything only happens in a few days, but you feel like you’ve been reading about events that happened over weeks because of the characters strong ability to observe. Martyn’s observations go far beyond anything I’ve ever even thought of, yet seem so obvious when I read them, as if they’ve always been there, simmering at the back of my head. I love that. It makes you see life in a different perspective. I’m almost sad to give it back to the library.
Just finished the book Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. An excellent story that pulled me along through the main characters feelings and thoughts. As she hid, I felt like hiding. As she grew and found life, I felt inspired. I do believe it is joining the ranks of my favorites.
