Two great stories!

I have just finished the new Harry Potter book and found it to be great writing. I recently met an English professor at a local college who wrote the review and hosted an on-line chat a few weeks ago for this book. She described the" last 200 pages to be brilliant" and I agree. Read her review here:

I also took the lead from Susan's sister Rebecca's blog for another great book, The Kite Runner. If you want to borrow either I have them. Great reading! Now Rebecca or Carol...what's next?

I have two suggestions for you in fact:
1. Million Little Pieces by James Frey
Keep in mind that this is nonfiction and a hauntingly clear portrayal of addiction and the road to recovery. It was a long read but for someone who doesn't always like nonfiction I give it two thumbs up.
2. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
It's a fiction book about a man who time travels against his will because it is a fault in his genetic code. It is written alternately from both the husband's and wife's perspective. It touched me so much that I cried throughout much of the end, although those could be the pregnancy hormones too! Happy reading! Rebecca
