This book is brutal. It is dark and twisted and painful to read, but at the same time you will not be able to put it down. It gives you so many reasons to root for Turtle. The want to see her see her escape from her horrible situation is enough to get you to the end. This book is not for the faint of heart. The further I get away from reading it the more I appreciate the subtle complexity of the writing, the impressive description, and strong characters. It is the kind of novel that makes you feel everything. ~ Reviewed by Molly Halpin
I found myself engulfed in these poems. They put you in a place at a time, they give you characters that you seem to know even after only a few lines, and they make you think. They accomplish everything poetry is meant to accomplish. ~ Reviewed by Molly Haplin
This novel is chilling. It is darker than it seems, but better than it seems in the same way. You will root for all the wrong characters, and they will all let you down but their journey is too fascinating to look away from. This book is about a trainwreck of people all just looking for love and finding it in all the wrong places. Good read. ~ Reviewed by Molly Halpin
This is a beautifully written story of the many generations of a Palestinian family. It is a story of their relationships, their struggles, their love, and their legacy. It tells the meaning of life beautifully and without meaning to in the gorgeous sprawling prose that can only be written by a poet. This is one of the most important novels of the year. You will fall in love with every character and you will never want it to end. ~ Reviewed by Molly Halpin
Sylvia Plath is a fascinating woman. This book shows what we can assume are aspects of the struggles that led to Plath's death. This edition shows us the edits and process on many of her poems, where from one draft to the next only punctuation has changed, showing the painstaking process of her writing, proving to the confessional critics that her work was meticulously thought out and a brilliant window inside her brain. ~ Reviewed by Molly Halpin
