This book is all about the setting,
with danger in everything,
even the smallest particles.
Buddha in the Attic
America in the time leading up to and during WWII,
Another Murakami world
of secrets and mysteries,
where nothing is certain.
I never knew what Florida Crackers were
until I read this book.
Think Florida Crackers = Early Wal-Mart People.
Game of Thrones
If you are a woman and you've ever been talked into playing Risk
with a bunch of men,
and you ended up running away from the table, in tears...
well, that's basically this book,
only you won't just leave the table in tears.
It's inevitable, we know,
but it hurts anyway.
Paris to the Moon
It's the most vivid spot on earth.
It's the book that makes me think of moving there every day.
I was a rabbit, living among rabbits,
for days as I read this book.
Children on the Oregon Trail
No water. Hunting for food.
Cold. Seven children,
one an infant, headed for Oregon.
In winter. Alone.
New Orleans after Katrina.
