  • Olive Kitteridge

    At times stern, at other times patient, at times perceptive, at other times in sad denial, Olive Kitteridge, a retired schoolteacher, deplores the changes in her little town and in the world at large, but she doesn't always recognize the changes in those around her.

    BeckyC says: "Absorbing collection of linked stories"
    "One of the best books I have ever experienced"
    Overall

    Winning the Pulitzer Prize was my first clue that "Olive Kitteridge" must be a very good book. I found the author to be extremely perceptive in showing us what life and growing old means to Olive and to many of the people in her life. Strout shows us also the variety of ways they impact each other in touching, sad and occasionally humorous ways. I loved her artful construction of the book into a series of interrelated short stories. A true masterpiece.

  • Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan

    From the author of the number-one national best seller Three Cups of Tea, the continuing story of this determined humanitarian and the schools he has established. In this dramatic first-person narrative, Greg Mortenson recounts his relentless, ongoing efforts to establish schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders.

    Cathleen says: "Better than Three Cups of Tea"
    "Fascinating & Thumbs up for woman narrator"
    Overall

    It was fascinating to me to learn in this book of the progress made in educating girls - and now women - in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Not only is Greg an inspired leader, but also an articulate writer. He describes beautifully what has transpired since Three Cups of Tea. I also think his choice of narrators is most appropriate. After all, the whole focus of Greg and his institute's mission involves girls and now women, does it not?
