Staff Review

Here it is-the hot new thing. I am surely in the minority when I say, I didn’t like it!  The first 100 pages were too slow for my taste. As I kept reading, I realized this was going to be one of those books with a twist at the end (predictably so because this book certainly wasn’t about great writing) and that is exactly what happened. I kind of saw it coming.  However, I enjoyed the scenery because I am always intrigued by books set in the south! Check it out!

Becoming
by Michelle Obama

Michelle Obama gives us an intimate look into her life from a child growing up in the South Side of Chicago to a family who provided the roots of the person she would “become”.  At every stage/transition of her life she looked to making herself a better person and always asked, “how can I make a difference for others?”.

I enjoyed reading about how she tackled the vast array of roles she took on.  -Janet

The History of Love by Nicole Krauss
I’ve reflected on this book many times since I first read it a dozen years ago. So when it was my turn to suggest a book club title, I was eager to share this with my friends.
Full of melancholy yet hopefulness with quirky but universal characters, The History of Love takes you on a journey through time and place. From pre World War II Poland to modern day New York, the story of a long lost manuscript and how it has brought people together will stay with you for a long, long time. – Nancy
