Radiant Terminus - Antoine Volodine,Jeff... Radiant Terminus - Antoine Volodine,Jeffrey Zuckerman

Reminds me a lot of Lem and the films of Tarkovsky. Beautiful and bleak. Immersive, effortless world-building. Frightening and funny as well. Better without all the meta stuff in Volodine's usual work (at least what I've read of it). Very visual.

Charlotte's Web - Garth Williams,E.B. White,Kate DiCamillo

Lexile Level: 680L


Wilbur the pig is born a runt, and the farmer decides he must face the axe.Fern steps in and saves him. She cares for the little pig, who later goes to a nearby farm. Wilbur discovers that his fate has been set for him. Horrified, he talks to a spider named Charlotte and she decides to try to help the pig out to save his life. The story is one of friendship, loyalty, and self-sacrifice. 

I would read this to older grades to show that the passing of time  has to happen so that life can go on, but with friendship and love and that the life was meant for something to help everyone you can.

My View:

All I can say is that this read had me coming and going and coming and going again! Now, why was this? I am not sure who I felt sorry for Siobhan Dempsey or Derick Miller. In my wildest dreams I a thought that Derick really cared for Siobhan but by the end of this read I simply wasn't sure! It was definitely a fact that he had an horrible obsession with her that was beginning to scare the heck out of me. Derick seemed to not be able to keep doing things behind Siobhan's back that surely she would find out about it all in the end. Was he that clueless? Will he ever learn or just say enough of this? Now as for Siobhan will she ever stop all of this and make a decision and stick with it? Oh well I guess we will just have to see what will happen in the next 'Diamond Trilogy # 3.' Both of these characters really have something going on for them but will this ever happen with what keep breaking them apart. What was up with this man that he thought he could buy her...through buying all of her paintings? Will Derick ever learn Siobhan doesn't want him interfering with her life even though he is a billionaire and had all the money? I can understand the love Derick has for Siobhan but the way he keep repeating the same old thing [following and buying her] is getting old. So, I guess we will have to tune into the next read to see how this story will turn out.
