Cover ArtAnd the mountains echoed [sound recording]
by Hosseini, Khaled.
Hossein is a wonderful storyteller, and the different characters used to tell the odessey of a brother and sister demonstrates his mastery of point of view. He provides rich detail of the many locales around the world in which the story moves.   posted Sep 26, 2013 at 11:16AM

Cover ArtAwait your reply : a novel
by Chaon, Dan.
This book explores identity from many different aspects. It started slow in giving the background of each character, but grips you along the way to solve the question of who is who.   posted Jul 6, 2010 at 8:22AM

Cover ArtEat, pray, love [compact disc] : [one woman’s search for everything across Italy
This is a great audio book as the author narrates in a style only your best friend could mimic. It is a frank discussion of her crisis and travel peppered with wit and lovely metaphors. I have to return it before completing, but am going to quick get on the list, as her short paragraph form makes it an enjoyable listen.   posted May 29, 2007 at 2:13PM

Cover ArtImperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq’s Green Zone
by Chandrasekaran, Rajiv
This is a well written account of the early days after the invasion of Iraq. It really depresses me that we have learned so little from our time there as the author details the hubris that we approached the culture, the infighting between State Dept and Defense Dept and generally not thinking through the consequences of the invasion.   posted Jan 22, 2007 at 8:33AM

Cover ArtThe thin place
by Davis, Kathryn
I am giving up on this book as the narrative style is herky-jerky. After 60 pages I cannot dicern the plot and it is not worth the effort as I do not care yet about any of the characters. I don't remember what recommended list this book was on, but it doesn't pass my criteria for good story telling.   posted Jan 22, 2007 at 8:29AM
