The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Love at first sight. We’ve all heard the stories from our friends and family of how they just happened to meet that right person at the right time. But few of us think about the hundreds of seemingly random, but actually important events that must have occurred to get to that particular moment. In her book, The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, author…See More

Belzhar by Meg Wolitzer

Despite the numerous books on death that we read for our English classes, Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar is not the typical choice a high school English class. A book that that describes a young woman’s descent into clinical depression (mirroring Plath’s own struggle with mental illness), The Bell Jar tells a story of extreme sorrow and the struggle with acceptance. But for a select group of student chosen…See More

#my3books

My sophomore year of high school, I was lucky enough to have Mr. Gary Anderson as my English teacher. While there is no end to the amount of lessons of literature and life I learned from him, there’s one lesson in particular that stands out when I think of his class. Up until sophomore year, I had disliked the ambiguity of literature, of the metaphors or other literary devices that could be interpreted in so many ways. But Mr. Anderson showed my class that the seemingly ambiguous stories are…See More

"You are such an incredible writer! I love how you talked about the importance of love in the novel. It is such a universal theme that can be applied to everything. This sounds like an excellent book and I think I'll read it next :)"

"Amazing post, Sumi! I love how you talked about the character relationships driving the story-- literature is such an effective tool for looking inside our own relationships and using fictional people as moral guides. It is nice to know that we are…"

"Thanks for posting about a topic that is often avoided at times, but needs to be addressed. I like how you mentioned that it took you three or four years to pick up the book again and appreciate it from a more mature point of view. Like you said in…"

"Wow, Beth's mom seems like a piece of work. I understand why Beth might feel like she's indebted to her mother (that very sentence seems so wrong) but Sky is her mother. It's her responsibility to take care of her. And Beth was only 8…"

"I guess that the best answer to the question would be to gain intellect while NOT losing value of important qualities like time and worth, but like you mentioned in the post, as we grow up, we get so caught up in work and school that we inevitably…"

"This seems like such a weird, but interesting book. Dr. Moreau definitely has a Frankenstein-vibe, and his relentless pursuit of science even at the cost of tearing apart his family makes me angry as well! I definitely want to read this book now to…"

Soumyaa Mazumder commented on Nicolette Schmidt's blog post A Banned Beauty - The Color Purple
