This was sitting by my bed for about a year and I was reluctant to start it for two reasons: I wasn't sure I was all that interested in Mencheres, and the cover is so awful I felt embarrassed to pick it up. However, I can now admit my doubts were unwarranted. Mencheres is lovely, and once started, I couldn't put his story down. Kira was a great heroine - I don't usually like the heroines in PNRs - and it was fabulous to see how strong she was all the way through, with no contrived angsty subplots. Finding out about Mencheres makes me want to reread Cat and Bones so I can fill in the blanks about him. This also has the bonus of Vlad, and I'll be moving on to his story soon. I loved it, but I'm still taking a star off for the cringeworthy cover - ugh.
Honestly, I don't really like American postmodern fiction (exempting Barth & Pynchon here); however, here's another writer of that trend that I couldn't help but enjoy. This book is worth it just for the 1st two stories ("CivilWarLand in Bad Decline" and "Isabelle"). That's not to say the rest of the book may be ignored; this is a wonderful collection of stories......Great place to start with Saunders.
I surprised myself and loved this book. I loved that the characters are real people and gave me a personal perspective into poverty, how they got there, what they chose to do and think and feel, and how they (some anyway) escaped.
What a fascinating book. Philosophical, profound, fantastic writing. I love when Kundera jumps in and provides commentary/exposition on the characters as the author. I can't wait to read more of his works.
For someone who is an enemy of the American people, Reich is a perceptive and entertaining writer. I'm ambivalent now. Reading books about the Clinton administration is one of the most depressing activities possible. Why? 1. All these people, thinking they are doing good, and working so hard to further the bubble-driven, short-term only, economy we live in. 2. Knowing that they knew full well the problems in income inequality, public utilities, and education, and that they simply ignored them a too difficult. 3. They're back in Obama's administration: Rubin, Summers, vomit.
I was skeptical when I first started reading this, I have a hard time with books or movies where people can understand animals and vice versa. However, this was so well written, and had a really interesting story line. I read it in four or five days. I think it could be a pretty awesome movie.
This book has everything I love! Basic sketches of main characters, songs, poems, recipes, additional information about Krynn. Otik's spiced potatoes has been tried and tested so many times by me. (though I have to admit I alter it a bit, so it's become Tenshichan's Spiced Potatoes, hehe!)
Although I enjoyed the overall storyline and plot of this book, told by Leonardo da Vinci's mother, I found her life as a man a major distraction. I think had the author picked another POV and/or mechanism by which to tell the story, I would have liked it more.
