First, I completed reading Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. I was mesmerized. Wharton's writing style was really enjoyable. Easy to read and full of description. It is difficult to believe that the whole book is about a man who is thinking about cheating on or leaving his wife. The plot can be summed up so succinctly, but the book is so much more than that. Remember this book was recommended by both my sister and a good friend. I have always trusted my sister's recommendations. She has led me to many great books and authors, and now I have someone else I can go to for recommendations :)
My second book this week was Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Future by Michael J. Fox. This was an interesting memoir about how Michael received his "college education" in the real world. There were some interesting anecdotes about his life, and overall it was an enjoyable read.
Finally I have started reading Terry Goodkind's Stone of Tears, the second book in the Sword of Truth series. I read the first book in this series a number of years ago. Now that I am returning to the series, I find that Goodkind's writing style is no longer very appealing to me. It seems stiff and contrived at times. Hopefully I'm just making an adjustment between this and my last fiction book. I'm not sure if I will make it through this one.
What are you reading this week?
