A gorgeous fall day (for Savannah) to start a new book!
So excited to start this stack!
Did some serious damage to this Nutella latte before I start this new book from The Otto Bookstore!
I HATED this book in college, but a reread gives me a new perspective. I can't say I love it, but I do admire Ishiguro's character and narrative development. I still have major qualms about the butler's views, ideas, etc, but he is a complex character, and that I appreciate.
Just finished this audio book today and will definitely need to revisit it!
Excited to start this for a book club. May be the first "self-help" book I've read?
A gripping book that made me feel all the feels! The characters grew and developed over the course of the narrative; I found it intriguing that a few of them didn't become better people, despite this growth- it kept them complex and realistic. Kayla is definitely the unsung character!
I really enjoyed this memoire, especially as narrated by Noah; he has a voice for everyone! And that last chapter... Not only is it an unbelievable true story, but it's a testament to Noah's storytelling skills. I went from crying to laughing in just minutes.
Binge reading a series I haven't touched on a decade. Way campier than I remembered and total brain candy reading!
Perfect beach read!
I don't have an image for this review because I left it at my sister's- on purpose! I had just finished the novel on the flight up for the weekend and talked it up so much that she asked to borrow it. The narration is lush and the characters layered. A beautiful, if tear-jerking, read.
I can see why this is a seminal work for early sci-fi, but I bailed near the end. All the main characters are slightly different versions of two archetypes (smart science guy, limited vision guy). But more importantly, THERE ARE NO WOMEN. Why create an entire universe and only mention women in passing twice as wives?
Great, fun, fast read. The ending felt rushed, but I'm really excited for the sequel!
I felt this image really connected with the novel! Credit: https://blatterbury.deviantart.com/art/Black-Witch-and-White-Witch-340463859
