Cover ArtBridget Jones : mad about the boy
by Helen Fielding
So glad I read this despite bad reviews! I absolutely loved the first book, did not like the second, and really enjoyed this one. I could absolutely see it being a successful movie. v funny   posted Mar 9, 2014 at 2:49PM

Cover ArtMrs. Brown [videorecording]
by Madden, John
I rented this as I had recently watched Young Victoria. I was expecting a bit more to the story than what was delivered. Just ok.   posted Mar 9, 2014 at 2:46PM

Cover ArtI capture the castle
by Dodie Smith
I didn’t find the narrator endearing, so I didn’t enjoy the book.   posted Dec 22, 2013 at 4:19PM

Cover ArtBlindness
by Jose Saramago
This book is very good and one of those that makes you think "What would I do in this situation?" However, the translation is a bit awkward. Trying to convey subtle meanings, the text gets weighed down. Also, there is an over abundance of using an idiomatic expression and then discussing the relevance or accuracy of it....almost once per page...gets a bit annoying.   posted Aug 18, 2013 at 11:49AM

Cover ArtThe angel’s game
by Ruiz Zafon, Carlos
I enjoyed the Angel’s Game, but in a different way than I enjoyed The Shadow of the Wind. The Angel’s Game is darker, has more twists and turns and leaves many unanswered questions. The ambiguity makes you think of many possible interpretations of what was real or dreamed or....? I recommend it.   posted May 5, 2013 at 10:45PM
