Reviews: The Earlies Part 3

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

Great. Book.

The Stolen Child by Keith Donahue

This book took me forever to read. It was just… a lot more boring than it should have been, considering the very interesting subject matter and plot. I think it would make a wild movie, but the book lacks something.

Hobomok by Lydia Maria Francis Child

Pretty interesting and fairly realistic (as opposed to The Last of the Mohicans, say?) depiction of the interaction between puritans and native americans.

Wrong by Dennis Cooper

Wow. Dennis Cooper.

Dream Boy: A Novel by Jim Grimsley

One of the first gay novels I ever read – probably picked it up in 8th or 9th grade. It’s well written, fun, sad, cute, tragic, sexy, and beautiful. I’ve read it 3 or 4 times over the years.

The Brothers Bishop by Bart Yates

Very interesting gay fiction.. two brothers, both gay. One responsible, one not. One a high school english teacher, fallen for a student but able to keep his distance. The other, well, doesn’t keep his distance. And all the fun, drama, and consequence to follow.

Haunted: A Novel by Chuck Palahniuk

Twisted and Bizzare and absolutely wonderful.

The Call of the Wild by Jack London

Pretty good read. I think I actually enjoyed the movie more, though.
