Happy Friday, guys! Let’s get the weekend started with some good ol’ book reviews in fifteen words or fewer.
2. Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Made me want to visit Paris and reread As You Like It. Dee’s my favorite.
3. American Pastoral by Philip Roth
I liked the initial concept, but didn’t hold together for me character-wise.
4. Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke
Delightful magical revision of English/French history. I loved the footnotes.
5. The Emperor’s New Clothes by Hans Christian Andersen
As a child concerned about clothes, a king walking naked down the street was puzzling.
