Books - April 2007

My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Chick Lit meets John Grisham meets Michael Crichton. The premise of its story is interesting, but it reads like an emotionally manipulative knockoff of The Client.

The Tender Bar by J.R. Moehringer
I treasured this memoir about boyhood, manhood, and fatherhood in Long Island. I didn't want it to end.

Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
I'll give it credit for making me think about sprituality and good food, but her choice to address the reader directly felt forced and simplistic in places.
