A Study In Scarlet

by Arthur Conan Doyle

This book was fast-paced and hard to put down. The description in the book is wonderful, and it almost makes you believe that you are part of the crime scene.

I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Doyle's work or would like to first read his work.

The Enchanted April

by Elizabeth von Arnim

I would recommend this book to anyone. It is a great story of four totally different women coming together in Italy to rent a house, and forming different relationships.

I liked the book, because it was easy to read, it kept me wanting to read, and it had a strange sort of humor (the kind that makes you laugh, because it is the truth that is given straight up).

This book was average. I guess I never can feel much sympathy for the problems of the rich and spoiled, so I can't really say that I enjoyed the book. I felt that the characters were hard to relate to, and a bit one-dimensional.

The other short stories were also disappointing. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.

The Last of the Mohicans

by James Fenimore Cooper

This book was terrible. Ok, I admit, I don't really have an interest in American Indian stories, and I don't really like violence in books (or tv), so maybe this book wasn't a good match for me from the beginning, but I figured since many American high school and college kids read this book, there must be SOMETHING about it to make it a classic.

Nope... It was long, repetitive, boring. The dialog was scarce and it didn't really keep me reading. The action bits were few and far between, but in-between was nothing. Just mindless narrative.

I would recommend this book to someone who really takes an interest in Indian stories, but not to someone who just wants a good solid read.
