More Reader Reviews

Our reader-reviewers have really come through this summer. When you visit the library, check out our review folder if you are looking for something new to read.

Audiobook review
The Omnivore's Dilemma
By Michael Pollan
Narrated by Scott Brick

This non-fiction book was educational as well as entertaining. The author examines the economic and political factors that influence our dietary choices and how it has changed through the generations. You won't look at food in the same way again!
Some bibliophile friends have commented that reading the book was a bit difficult to get through, stating that it was a little dry in some spots and too much information to absorb where they had to stop and think about what they read. I found the audio book to be very easy to listen to as the narrator was very engaging.

The Lost Quilter
By Jennifer Chiaverini

This was the first book I read by Jennifer Chiaverini and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I became engrossed in the life of Joanna-a slave in the American South. It was difficult to put this book down.

Look Again
By Lisa Scottoline

Very good--characters are real and the story will keep your interest right to the end.
