The Bride Stripped Bare
The Bride Stripped Bare Reviews

Review: This book was something I could relate to being in a relationship for the first time that turned serious fast. It helped me not feel alone and gave me courage to say to my partner what I did and didn't like. We were both virgins and this book gave me the strength to try and help my partner like the 'bride' did with Gabriel. This was the first book I have read, that had sex in detail and even though this is still different from other books I have read since I have come to enjoy more detailed love... Read more

Review: The Deptford Trilogy--A Canadian Bulgakov, if you can wrap your head around that--magical, dark, comedic, and mysterious. Robertson Davies deserves to be read and reread and reread. Read more

Strong Motion
Strong Motion Reviews

Review: I consider Franzen to be one of my favourite novelists even though before now I've only read The Corrections and Freedom. So I thought I better check out the back catalogue. I might be wrong but Strong Motion seemed to be the book where Franzen developed his voice and really seemed like the Franzen I know and love by the end of this book. But it seemed like a gradual thing, I found the start quite flakey and I even considered abandoning it at one stage. I also found a lot of the characters to be... Read more

Ravelstein
Ravelstein Reviews

Review: Um bom livro de Saul Bellow, que segue os retratos psicológicos habituais de personagens frágeis, sempre à procura de aceitação e onde a profundidade psicológica e a busca por um entendimento global atravessa todo o livro. Não é o seu melhor livro mas recomendo. Read more
