Mrs. K's Titles



A Season of Gifts
A Season of Gifts by Richard Peck (1950s)
A light little book about growing up in the 50's. It was OK, but I have other (funnier) authors to go to if I want this sort of story. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/24/2014

The Life of Objects
The Life of Objects by Susanna Moore (1940s)
This book is written from the viewpoint of an Irish girl living in Germany during World War II. Well read by Cassandra Campbell but I found it tricky to follow. The author switches from first to last names when introducing characters and I never did figure out if she actually revealed the fate of a supporting character (and I missed it) or if she just threw him into a laundry list of events that were recapped toward the end. I also took issue with two rather violent and disturbing scenes when most of the rest of the book was fairly innocent. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/24/2014

Murder on the Orient Express
Murder on the Orient Express by Agatha Christie (1930s)
A classic Agatha Christie mystery. She was a bit wordy sometimes. I'm not sure if it's her writing or Poirot that didn't really grab me in this book. About half way through his "who-dunnit" speech I was screaming for him to finish already I didn't care anymore LOL! -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/21/2014

Fever
Fever by Mary Beth Keane (1910s)
This historical fiction is based on the life of Mary Mallon "Typhoid Mary". It's a touching story wonderfully read by Candace Thaxton. It paints an in depth portrait of life in New York from about 1899 to 1915 from Mary's perspective. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/21/2014

This Present Darkness
This Present Darkness by Frank Peretti (1980s)
Set in the 80's this book was written in response to the growing popularity of Eastern mysticism and New Age practices in the Christian community. Although a bit radical (and I'm sure considered "intolerant") it is an eye opening tale of what is going on around us in spiritual realms. A bit of a stretch theologically, but a very powerful visualization of spiritual warfare. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/21/2014

A Tale for the Time Being
A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki (2000s)
Not the historical fiction I thought I was getting into. A little insight into Kamikazi training of WWII, but mostly author philosophizing and exorcising her demons of writer's block. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/15/2014

Still Foolin' 'Em
Still Foolin' 'Em by Billy Crystal (Other)
Interesting and very funny. Didn't care for the harsh language. -- Added by Mrs. K on 02/15/2014
