My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gulliver’s Travels was one of my all-time favorite books as a child and young adult. Adventures beyond the known and off into the worlds of the unknown, there are remarkable things to discover and rediscover as you follow Gulliver through his world of travels. Swift makes creating other worlds a fun and fascinating venture. This book is on my bookshelf of children’s best reads.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Mystery, adventure, drama, lust, jealousy, and tyranny; this story is going to be on the top 100 list for decades to come. A dramatic tale of a painter and his maid, as she learns to see what he sees in full color. If you have not seen the movie yet, then don’t, until you read the book – I promise you will not regret it. A masterpiece of artistic revelry.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Beautiful Mind is going to stay with me forever. Genius, at all angles. The tenderness of love, to the illness that keeps them apart, Sylvia Nasar wrote these characters clear in their portrayal. Graphic details flood the mind as pages turn, giving one a sense of vivid transparency of the actions of all involved. A mathematical, yet insanely riveting read.
