Book Review: Sons

Sons (House of Earth, #2)Sons by Pearl S. Buck
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the “House of Earth” trilogy. I enjoyed reading it, though it wasn’t as compelling as the first book. Buck continues to play with the themes of tradition and revolution as particularly played in the relationships between fathers and sons. I like her writing. It was a thoughtful read, but the story overall wasn’t as good as the first one.

Book Review: Evangellyfish

EvangellyfishEvangellyfish by Douglas Wilson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I remember reading the original project back in the day before this became the published work it now is. I must say the published version is quite a bit spicier than I remember. I can only assume there was a quick run to the East Indies during editorial and some cheferie with heavy hands involved in plating the dish. Anyhoo, it’s an entertaining read but could easily be non-fiction. You know the kind, based on a true story and the names have been changed to protect whatever needs protecting.

Book Review: Zen in the Art of Writing

Zen in The Art of WritingZen in The Art of Writing by Ray Bradbury
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is a collection of Bradbury’s essays grouped together around the topic of writing. It was part memoir and part advice. I gleaned a couple of book recommendations and I thought the title essay was the strongest.
