The Sweetness at the Bottom of This Book

Posted on May 28, 2014 at 1:45pm 16 Comments

A Dinner

          This month I picked up another book from the "must read" table at Barnes and Noble due to the success last time. I read The Dinner by Herman Koch. This book is quite literally about a dinner. Two couples sit down to talk about their children's antics and off it goes from there. 

          Usually I don't like mysteries, but this author really reeled me in. The actually plot of the stories isn't too interesting, but the style of writing made it a very enjoyable read…


Darling, Bastard, Chipo, Godknows, Sbho, & Stina

        In March, I read the book We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo. The book is about a young girl, Darling, growing up in a poverty-stricken Zimbabwe and then moving in with her aunt in America. 

        I had much higher expectations for this book, because this could be a very interesting subject to write about with a lot of potential. I felt that We Need New Names just skimmed the top of a subject that otherwise has much depth to it. I was originally…
