My Brilliant Career

by Miles Franklin

This book was excellent, and reminded me a lot of Willa Cather's O Pioneers!. It takes place in the Australian Bush, and is written by a woman who tells about the poverty and hardship that she went through, and the love that she lost. I would recommend this book to any woman or any teenage girl who wants to learn more about life in Australia.

Stranger Things Happen

by Kelly Link

The stories were interesting, but there was always something missing from them. Most lacked a proper ending (or any ending at all). My impression of the stories were that the author was trying too hard to be modern and trying too hard to shock the reader. There were also some formatting problems in the middle of the text which were annoying. I wouldn't recommend this book, but could understand how someone who like more experimental fiction would enjoy it.

O Pioneers!

by Willa Cather

I liked this book a lot, because the characters drew me into the story, and told me the struggles that they went through.

The story is about a Swedish family that came to Nebraska to become farmers and how they survive and the troubles that they go through.

I can't really say anything negative about the book. It was a really fast read, and I would recommend this book.

Tokyo Zero

by Marc Horne

This book was really difficult to read, but I struggled through it. I had problems with the point of view constantly changing, the incomplete thoughts, and I never seemed to know who was saying what...

The story line was stretched too long, and I think that this story would have been better as a short story rather than a novel.
