The Family Fang

By Kevin Wilson

Oh my goodness! What a great book! This is one of the few times I completely agreed with all the praise written on the back. It is novel, interesting, well written, and very enjoyable. Highly recommended. [320 pp.]

The Lost Dog

By Michelle de Krester

This book was not easy to read. Maybe because it's in Australian... It took me a while to finish it, but overall I enjoyed it. It wasn't too difficult going back to where I stopped 2 weeks before (I didn't want to take it with me to Costa Rica, being a hard cover library book). This book tells the story of a guy who loses his dog in the Australian bush, and while looking for him, he reviews his relationship with the woman he's in love with (but she only sees him as a good friend), and his relationship with his aging mother. Lots of things going on, with the history of the woman he's in love with, and his own history starting with his childhood in India. [336 pp.]

Ethan Frome

By Edith Wharton

I might have seen the movie on TV at some point, but I can't say anything looked familiar when reading the book. It was quite interesting and fairly easy read, with an interesting twist in the end. [181 pp.]
