Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
by J.K. Rowling. NO SPOILERS IN THIS POST! Now that all the chaos has died down, hopefully all you Potter fans have had a chance to read and absorb the end of this phenomenal series. My personal reaction-I loved it! Yes, there were a few things I found puzzling or not as I had hoped, but overall reading the book gave me that total immersion in the Wizarding World that I have come to expect of J.K. Rowling as well as an emotional closure to the series. I would love to hear some reactions from the other fans among our patrons. Give us some comments!
by E.L.Doctorow. This tale of the Civil War by a National Book Award winner begins in Georgia, just a few minutes ahead of Sherman's driving march to the sea. Doctorow puts the reader in the heart of the action, introducing characters from both sides of the conflict. Soldiers, former slaves, landowners, and even General Sherman himself are drawn in a way that makes you feel as if you are there with them. Good reading for Civil War buffs or for anyone who likes a bit of history with their fiction.
