Review: The World Broke in Two: Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster and the Year that Changed Literature

The World Broke in Two: Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster and the Year that Changed Literature The World Broke in Two: Virginia Woolf, T. S. Eliot, D. H. Lawrence, E. M. Forster and the Year that Changed Literature by Bill Goldstein
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was a bit worried this would be a bit dry for me but it was really interesting and a great read. I do disagree that D. H. Lawrence belonged in this group though. I don't feel like his work during this year stacked up to what the others accomplished.

Review: White Fur

White Fur White Fur by Jardine Libaire
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

It doesn't always work for me when you get a teaser of the end at the beginning of the book but it really grabbed me this time. The main story was interesting enough that I had a hard time putting it down and then I would remember the beginning and just couldn't wait to see how it got to that point and find out what would happen. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy this book but it was really well-written and just a great story all around.

Review: Neuromancer

Neuromancer Neuromancer by William Gibson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I now see how the script for The Matrix was born.

I honestly found this a bit hard to follow. Not very interested in reading the subsequent books.

Review: Night Thoughts

Night Thoughts Night Thoughts by Wallace Shawn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very thoughtful. Reads like a journal. I'm curious about his other books now. Sounds like a man who would be a lot of fun to chat with over a good meal.

Review: Crocodile on the Sandbank

Crocodile on the Sandbank Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this. It was exactly my cup of tea. I now see where Gail Carriger got the inspiration for her Soulless series. Can't wait to read the rest of these and may have to buy them for my collection.
