Patron Book Reviews: General Fiction

Posted by annonymous EPL patrons

What in God’s Name by Simon Rich.  Try as I did, I couldn’t get over the manner in which God, heaven and angels were portrayed in this book. I tried to pretend God was a CEO of heaven, a business, but no, there was just too much disrespect. The idea was original but it was never funny. I’m sorry I read this! 

The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett.  Cute fable about what would happen if Queen Elizabeth got hooked on books. Well-written, and very funny. A page-turner ‘til the very last page. It’s a quick read; even quicker because it’s a novella.

A Single Thread by Marie Bostwick.  This is the first book in the Cobbled Court Novels. Evelyn Dixon, a middle-aged woman, must start her life over after her husband suddenly divorces her. She has lives in Texas for 20 years, but decides to get in her car and head to the northwest for a new start. Her dream has been to own a quilt shop. Reading of all her trials in opening the shop and friends she meets in her new town of New Bern, Connecticut is very interesting. Once you read this one, you’ll want to read the other books in the series: A Thread of Truth, A Thread So Thin, and Threading the Needle.
