Book Reviews

A few books I've read lately:

1) Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte - Wonderful piece of literature! Wish I'd read it sooner. It took me a while to really get into it, but then I couldn't put it down. Beautiful love story too.
2) The Sea by John Banville - I kept hoping that this plot would evolve into something interesting, but it just didn't. Anyone read this one and had a different opinion? I felt like I had to work really hard to make myself finish this book.
3) Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon - This is the second book in the Outlander series, and I liked it even more than the first book, Outlander. I was a little disappointed when I first started reading Outlander, because it was different than what I was expecting. I had hoped for a historical novel about time travel, and what I was reading at first seemed more like a romance novel (some of the scenes are pretty descriptive...know what I mean??). But the more I read, the more into the story I became. Gabaldon is such a talented storyteller. I already have the third book, Voyager, on reserve at my library (I'd better read fast...there are already six books in this series!).

I'm working on reading Anne of Green Gables now, and I want to start A Thousand Splendid Suns, Wuthering Heights, Pride and Prejudice. Wish I had more time to read!!!
