In books read on February 11, 2006

I've read the book, but not yet written anything down about it. Check back later (maybe!).

Foreign Affairs by Alison Lurie

In books read on February 6, 2006

I remember picking some of Lurie's books up in my late teens or early twenties and not being able to get into them at all. Now I'm finding them to be great books, almost page turners. Maybe I just grew into them.

Fun story of three Americans in London, exceedingly well written and funny and sad in all the right places.

Borrowed.

Absent Friends by SJ Rozan

In books read on February 4, 2006

This tale concerns a group of friends who grew up on Staten Island in the 1970s and mostly takes place in late 2001 in New York just after the attacks on the World Trade Center. I was looking forward to reading it but in the end felt disappointed.

Despite the fact that I've loved and adored Rozan's other books I never really got into the swing of this one and the plot always felt a little clunky and culminated in an ending that seemed very so-so to me. Just didn't seem to be as well written as I'd hoped. And though I found some of the sections dealing with life in Manhattan after September 11th interesting I didn't find them as emotionally involving as I thought I should and it started to feel voyeuristic reading the book.

I guess I'd just hoped for better.

Purchased on 10th January 2006.
