A really wonderful book. Read with a box of tissues handy, you will need it.

A must read for anyone with a bit too much fondness for Jane Austen. This books offers a fresh perspective on the story we all know and love without being obsolete or full of zombies. It adds a new layer and subtext to the heroines of Austen in a darker and more honest narrative that puts context...

Strong female leads, fast paced story telling and a nice glimpse into fictional factory work in the 1800s. The women in this book remind me of the vigor of heroines like Jo March from Little Women, full of hope and the cusp of transformation.

If you are in the mood for a chick flick but nothing really stands out as a solid option, this book is fine. It's predictable and light, focusing squarely two sisters looking for love and commitment. It's perfect mental floss for anyone in their 30s thinking about how nice being 20 would...

Seriously a great read. The protagonist is painfully awkward and definitely your typical emotional, self-absorbed, and shortsighted teen- using her as a lens into the Aids epidemic is a startling new point of view. She loves whole heartedly men that can never give her what she wants and the men in...

It's a great read for someone that likes to peer into other time periods without a full assault of every issue. She manages with skill to introduce you to a world of interesting characters and many forms of prejudice and inequality without making the book sad. It celebrates life and is a joy...

If you enjoy supernatural lifetime movies this book is sure to appeal. It is fast paced and written in a low enough reading level everyone can access it. It has some overblown but surprisingly sparsely detailed sex scenes and lots of references to family and bloodlines. If you are the kind of...

If you like his books this is a solid choice. However, the author explores a lot of the graphic sexual imagery (surprising for a book with so little actual sex) closer to his work 1Q84. If you liked that book more than After Dark, this book will appeal to you. I found it a bit slow and it took two...

This is an excellent work of short story fiction. Although it has a sci-fi bent with Martians and space travel, it is much more philosophically thought provoking than is typical for the sci-fi genre. It is beautifully descriptive in just the right places so that your imagination can run wild to...
