"The Haunting of Hill House" wasn't as scary as I had expected and the story wasn't what I was expecting either! That said, I really enjoyed this classic horror. It's well written and the protagonist is one of my favourite characters in a long time - 4 stars!
"Coconut Unlimited" is a short and sweet look back at the teenage years of three Asian boys. It's not a hard read but for me it wasn't all that interested either. I feel like it was intended for a much smaller audience and this story was lost on me. I enjoyed the first and last chapters, but the story in the middle gives this one 2 stars.
This book isn't going to stick in your mind forever, but I'm not sure it needs to. As a collection of short accounts, The New York Times have put together and interesting peek into the city over the years. Now it's time to explore the city for myself...
An emotional rollercoaster which I would highly recommend. 5 stars!
A disappointing 2 stars for a book I just couldn't enjoy no matter how hard I tried. Dragged out, sluggish and whiny yet interspersed by engaging and interesting chapters, sadly this story of self discovery was just not for me.
