Hunger | Knut Hamsun

I didn‘t enjoy this #audiobook. A down on his luck writer sees things go from bad to worse as he runs out of money, slowly sells off his possessions, and becomes increasingly mentally unstable as hunger rules his thoughts. Yet, throughout the story, people do try to help him and he makes incredibly bad decisions. I wanted to feel sympathy, but I just didn‘t. I don‘t quite know what to make of the ending either.

This was fantastic on audio. Thrilling and tragic, Ruthless River tells the true story of a young couple who set out on an adventurous honeymoon and end up stranded in a flooded offshoot of the Madre de Dios River in the Bolivian Amazon.

dragondrool I started reading this last summer, but set it down when we picked a new book for our real-time book club. I need to get back to it and finish it up. I think I'm halfway. I was enjoying it. 2mo

This is a great non-fiction book. It uses facts which are backed up in the author's note in the back of the book. She also gives choctow symbols used in the long march as well as words. I think it is a great book.

I think that this is a great book to use in the classroom because the author used great words to retell what happened on the “trail of tears“. The illustrations are also beautiful.

This was a very interesting book. I didn't know this story before I read it. I'm not sure young children would understand it or know what the story is telling, but it is a great book to read for a little Indian history lesson. I would read this to older elementary kids. Second and up maybe.
