    She's a fashion model who has everything: a boyfriend, a career, a loyal best friend. But when a sudden freeway "accident" leaves her disfigured and incapable of speech, she is transformed from the beautiful center of attention to an invisible monster, so hideous that no one will acknowledge she exists.

    I don't even know how to start this. This was my first introduction to Chuck Palahniuk. He is like no author I have read before, and I appreciate his creativity. Some parts of the novel, I believe, jumped around a bit to much. Even though the story line was a bit to "coincidental" and extremely "out there", part of you actually believes in the reality of it all. Because of this book, I will definitely be buying more by Chuck.

    When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave - "Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" - wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have... and you may find one day that you have less than you think").

    I can't find words to express how much this novel touched me. I kept nodding sentence after sentence, I couldn't agree more on Randy's perspective of life. My favourite quote being:

    Experience is what you get, when you didn't get what you wanted.
    Randy Pausch

    No matter the age, everyone should read this novel.

    Story
    (2273)

    In the spring of 1974, Calliope Stephanides, a student at a girls' school in Grosse Pointe, finds herself drawn to a chain-smoking, strawberry-blonde classmate with a gift for acting. The passion that furtively develops between them - along with Callie's failure to develop physically - leads Callie to suspect that she is not like other girls. In fact, she is not really a girl at all.

    I was completely surprised by this book, though I didn't know what to expect. It definitely made you feel uncomfortable at times, but it is worth it. The struggles that Cal goes through are raw, I would recommend this to anyone!

  • Schindler's List

    In the century's darkest time, one man became the most unlikely of heroes. German-Catholic industrialist and Nazi Party member Oskar Schindler used his wealth and influence to save the lives of more than 1,300 Jews who would have otherwise died in the concentration camp at Plaszow. Here is the story on which Steven Spielberg based his powerful motion picture. If you like this, try Ursula Hegi's Stones from a River.

    This was an excellent book, though I wish there was more. I am surprised that the Unabridged version is not offered.
