March 2011.....3 books read – what’s going on?
Pete Earley – The Hot House
Emma Donoghue – Room
Jess Mowry – Rats In The Trees
Hot House was about Leavenworth Penitentiary with interviews between Earley and inmates and guards – interesting.
Room – absolutely loathed it as did my wife. One of the absolute worst books I have ever read in my life. I wanted to stick a meltedy spoon in my brain, just to make it stop.
Mowry – Rats In The Trees pick of the month by default. A loose collected of inter-related tales of a runaway landing in Oakland and connecting up with other inner-city teenagers. Not as enjoyable as Way Past Cool.
