Comfort: A Journey Through Grief (2009)
language
English
4.13 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: What a poignant memoir. Several times I felt the tears start, and I am not an emotional reader whatsoever. I'm not a Mom, and I don't even have a natural affinity for children. Why does this matter? Of course it doesn't, except that Hood's narrative is so moving, in under two hu...
An Italian Wife (2014)
language
English
2.65 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I wanted so much for this book to be of four or five star quality. The only thing keeping me from selecting one star is that the historical context and Italian customs explained were interesting to me. I started out liking the story, and just when I was getting to know a charac...
The Obituary Writer (2013)
language
English

review 1: I would have had trouble with this book anyway--not much in some of the characters for me to like. Even though I'm not fond of superhero types who are gorgeous, wealthy, all-knowing and connected, neither do I like really weak personalities--at least, not unless there's real gro...
The Red Thread (2011)
language
English

review 1: It was clear from the start that Maya (protagonist) was still attempting to come to terms with (or rather avoiding dealing with) some traumatic event in her past. Although one could guess that it had something to do with a child, it is not until a third of the way into the book t...
Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting (2014)
language
English
3.73 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I picked up this book of short stories about knitters and writing along with quite a few other books, and got around to reading it recently. The book is comprised of short essays written by various writers (some famous, some not) who have something to talk about on the topic of ...
Somewhere Off the Coast of Maine (1987)
language
English
3.49 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Beautifully written, even if it did leave me feeling a little disappointed, a little left out on a limb. I was so taken in, entranced by Claudia, Elizabeth, Suzanne and their families, following their hopes, dreams and tribulations from the 60's all the way through to the mid 80'...
The Italian wife (2014)
language
English
2.64 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: This book started out OK, but went downhill quickly from there. This is a multi-generational tale spanning many decades and I found myself flipping to the chart in the front more than once to keep track of who all these people are. Then the author spend precious little time on so...
El Hilo Rojo (2014)
language
English
3.69 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Hay veces que apetece leer libros no muy complejos y que no te aporten nada, pero te distraigan. El hilo rojo es un libro así, no te cambiará la vida, no te marcará, pero es entretenido y fácil de leer. Para mi gusto, los personajes son muy planos y sus problemas, muy tópicos. Ad...
Voglio prenderti per mano (2012)
language
English
3.69 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This stands out as my least favorite Ann Hood novel to date. It just wasn't as literary as The Knitting Circle, Somewhere Off the Coast of Maine, or The Obituary Writer. And it wasn't as poignant as Comfort: A Journey through Grief. Don't get me wrong. I'm a big Ann Hood fan, so ...
Angel of the Battlefield #1 (2012)
language
English
3.67 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I never read the “Bobbsy Twins” but that was all I could think of when I saw “...the Adventures of the Robbins Twins” on the cover of this complementary teacher’s edition. This edition includes materials for teachers, and along with the newest fad, are aligned with the Common Cor...
