Difficult
Invisible Man - Ralph Ellison

On various fronts. The overarching subject, the sense of hopelessness, helplessness and despair, the long-winded, meandering way the story is told (which is on par with the idea that it is a stream-of-conscience recount), and the purpose way in which this guy's obliviousness is made plain (and cringe-inducing) for the reader (and the teller).

 

Found it brilliant, at points boring and quite maddening.

 

Oh, and I leave it with a feeling akin to what Catcher in the Rye left me.

A character you won't soon forget
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine - Gail Honeyman

There is a reason that this debut novel has been on hold for many, many months and why it continues to be difficult to get in a hurry. Gail Honeyman has managed to create a character so unique and delightful that I found myself instantly enamored of her. Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine is the story of a woman who the reader learns from the outset is completely aloof to the social mores of society and is pretty content to remain so...until she sees the man of her dreams. It seems fairly obvious to the reader that this 'relationship' is doomed to fail. (Like my romance with Brian Littrell when I was in middle school.) However, having this foreknowledge does not detract from the story because the love story is between the reader and Eleanor and Eleanor with herself. She is a fragile woman who has built up a rather thick wall between herself and the entire world...and she's had plenty of time to reinforce that wall. Her past is nothing if not murky and it doesn't get cleared up until almost the very end of the novel. (And it's a doozy, ya'll.) It's exceedingly difficult for me not to spill some essential facts while writing up this review because they're the things that make this a truly gripping piece of realistic fiction. Eleanor is a character that seems to live and breathe beyond the page. Her bucking of social 'norms' coupled with her frankly hilarious inner dialogue about what is and isn't 'polite' had me laughing out loud on several occasions and made me feel so connected to her. I truly rooted for her and became emotionally invested as if I was reading an autobiography or memoir instead of a work of fiction. (Gail, you've made it into my list of top 20 authors of all time. I'm excited to see what you come up with next!) 10/10 highly recommend

 

A/N: The author discusses child abuse, disfigurement, bullying (from all ages), and mental illness. If these are triggering to you in any way, shape, or form then you should steer clear. Everyone else, I think Gail handled these topics very well (having dealt with 2 of the 4 personally) and I see no reason why you should give this book a pass. Eleanor will grab you by the heartstrings and refuse to let go.

A Study in Scarlet
A Study in Scarlet - Arthur Conan Doyle

Read on Wordpress- The Bookworm Daydreamer- A Study in Scarlet Book Review

 

Title: A Study in Scarlet
Series: Sherlock Holmes
Author: Arthur Conan Doyle
Rating: 4/5 stars

 

 

Prior to this one, the only Sherlock Holmes story I've read was A Scandal in Bohemia. I haven't watched any Sherlock Holmes related tv series or movies either. I was aware of them, but I didn't watch them. I like plots with mysteries but I'm not particularly well-versed in the genre itself. Still, I told myself to give it a try, especially because my favorite subject happens to be Introduction to Criminal Law and I tend to find criminal cases engrossing.

A Study in Scarlet was a great introduction to the genre. It had twists, a criminal that wasn't who I expected but nevertheless had a strong motive, and a great detective in Sherlock Holmes. The first part was thrilling and it establishes the characters of Dr. Watson and Sherlock very well. I liked how it also introduced Sherlock Holmes' brand of reasoning. The science of deduction seems very interesting if a bit confusing.

The second part is very very different from the first one. It becomes a drama which tells us the accused's history and gives a background as to his motive. I don't want to speak about the religious aspect as two of my closest friends belong to that religion and I have no opinion to offer on that front.

Still, I liked A Study in Scarlet for what it was and I'm definitely going to be reading more of the Sherlock Holmes novels and stories.
