Hour 5: Tales from Outer Suburbia



It's not on anyone's classics book...yet. But what a fantastic read! Fantastic is a key word, because every story feels like a fantasy, yet terribly real.

Yes, I, who grew up in suburbia when nobody knew it would take over America like a disease, I always thought of suburbia as a strange world but never ventured into the corners of suburbia that Tan takes us to in this book.

The pictures are perfect and the stories so thoughtful I would love to read them again and again.

Another excellent read. Did I ever pick some great reads for the read-a-thon?!

  1. Wow! You are on a roll! That's great - I know you said you are "only" finishing these books, but what a great sense of accomplishment you must have!

    Good luck and have fun for the rest of the read-a-thon!
