Another installment of books I read in 2010. We’re getting down to the bottom of the pile. But still quite a few to go! I rate on a scale of 1-5.
Definitely a book that will go down as literature to be read by future high school kids.
She’s very witty. The movie was wonderfully done as well.
Heard of the movie Out of Africa? These were the actual letters written between Baroness Karen von Blixen-Fineke and her family. Sometimes a little boring (as normal life is) but enlightening.
The story was nice, the dialect was horribly difficult to get into. I don’t enjoy stories written in dialect, I try to correct the grammar as I read.
Gave me some fresh ideas.
I found it a bit trite. It was fun and all, but basically taking most of someone else’s work word for word and adding in your own element…I don’t know. It just didn’t hit me right.
Very engaging writing and characters. Lovely stories. (Even if there is a lot of kissing :))
I watched the movie first and was intrigued. The story was wonderful. I liked the movie as well, even though it ended differently.
Fun and quick read. A little silly though. I like young adult, just needs to be believable and have some depth to it.
I couldn’t put it down…because I was scared half to death. The writing was good, but the story was gripping! The movie is awesome (the Swedish one). I’m worried the English remake will horribly ruin it.
Every once in a while it’s nice to read short stories. Hers are all a bit confusing, but good.
I didn’t know where she would go with this second book, but I liked it!
A little high fantasy. It’s like a breath of mountain air when high fantasy doesn’t seem silly.
I had to read these, I do live in Germany!
I’m not much for adventures, but ever since I was given a stack of books with one of his, I like to read them here and there. Funky, fast, and definitely alluring.
