Reviews, The Earlies Part 14

The Coming Storm by Paul Russell

Another book about the blurred lines between teacher/student and adult/teen and lover/lover relationship. A boarding school boy falls for and seduces a new young teacher… and all the mayhem follows close behind. Actually a very good read.


The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown

Wildly intelligent and fun. Almost as good as Angels and Demons.

Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt by Anne Rice

Very interesting fictionalization of the story of Jesus Christ’s childhood. Very much enjoyed this book.

The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde

Great, great book. Don’t know what else to say except ‘read it.’

Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs

Amazing! Incredibly funny and intelligent. One of my favorite books.

England, England by Julian Barnes

Hilarious irony. Brilliant.

Totally Joe by James Howe

So cute and funny. An easy, enjoyable read. Something for a lazy summer day.
