RE: stieg larsson: The girl with the dragon tatoo series

I was given the first book off a friend, I too found it very difficult to read at first. Persevere though you get to a point and before you know it you will have finished the third. I was devastated when I found out the author had died. Can't bring myself to read the follow up because they are not written by him.

RE: Lewis Carroll: Alice in Wonderland

I love this book, it is my go to when I have nothing new to read. When I was younger and a bit of a hippy :) my friends and I would read it to each other wherever we were usually under the influence of something or other. Good memories

Golden... I bought the book in Cobh and it was very enlightening. I did go to see the famine statues in Dublin and they are incredible.

Clarissa Rodgers-Briskleigh: A Second Rainbow

The longest review:

A Second Rainbow was a terrifically fun read. I really like this authors writing style having read some of her other work and from following her blog where she has been tirelessly researching the dating scene for those of more mature years. This is a writer who has walked the walk and that comes across in this well written book.

We follow Dorothy on her second time around journey in discovering love, lust and everything in between after her marriage fails. This tale is structured around the story of The Wizard of Oz (hence the Dorothy bit, is anyone called that nowadays?) anyway this worked very well as we met and experienced the various men that Dorothy dates.

This book is in the erotica section and I’m not sure where the line is drawn or at what point you have to make it clear to readers that there could be scenes they may find potentially alarming. I found that unlike some erotic novels I’ve read there were no long scenes of an explicitly intimate nature where everything is described but more that this is a rather refreshing read where sex is mentioned, briefly described in quite robustly blunt terms that I really liked.

I happily sailed through this book and was so fully absorbed in the storyline that just like Dorothy I didn’t see the twist coming, not at all, I should have done of course, well because… no I won’t spoil it but it was very well done.

I loved the relationships Dorothy manages to keep, forms and maintains and though her story is very different to mine I have a feeling that should we ever meet we would get on famously. A highly recommended read with great insight into finding that second rainbow many seek.

RE: Ronald Walker: Essences Of Love (Poetry & Short Stories Evolving Through The Humilities Of Love)

He shows affectionately, what 90% of humanity regrettably does not understand about what love is. Very good for people to meet with love before they want to love someone.

RE: Ayn Rand: Atlas Shrugged

I have a question for you Philomena. In Anne Rand's Utopian World, where everyone should produce; what about those who are unable to? I refer to those who are born crippled, profoundly retarded etc etc. Where do they fit into Rand's idea of a logical utopia? Or are they to be ignored, or done away with? I have read this book, and this is the question I would ask Rand, if she were still alive.confused
