5.0 out of 5 stars Faith, Interrupted is faith explored, a compelling read, March 15, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Eric Lax weaves together the story of his faith throughout his life with that of his friend, Skip, now Bishop George Packard, from college to the present. It is a thoughtful exploration of growth in an age when the war in Viet Nam affected the lives of a generation, whether through serving in the military or avoiding that service. Whether you lived through those years or not, it is a compelling meditation on what it means to have, or not to have, faith and what its presence or absence means in how one lives one's life. For those of us who know the people and the times involved, it is more than compelling and invites serious reflection on how our lives were shaped, and continue to be shaped, by that war. The book is scholarly without being academic and religious without being sanctimonious.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful shoe, October 31, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love this shoe so much, I have four pairs in all different colors. It has just enough heel to feel dressy but it is still very comfortable. The leather is soft and feels good on your foot. There is nothing not to like about this shoe.

A complex mystery that takes place in Saudi Arabia in modern times, as interesting for the sociological issues facing women in that society as for the mystery itself.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Saul Bellow's Best Book, September 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you have not read anything by Saul Bellow, don't start with this book. It is pedantic and involves characters about whom it is difficult to care very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars What reading means in the lives of women in the late 1800s, September 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is such an interesting, thoughtful, well-researched book. It is difficult to explain the charm of this book, which describes the reading history of women, some born of privilege in this country and some immigrants for whom English was not their first language. It is history and sociology and anthropology, all rolled into the stories of several women. If you like American history, or women's studies, or are just an avid reader, you will thoroughly enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Irish Music, September 28, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Over the Edge (Audio CD)
Moher plays traditional Irish music (in Doolin on Sunday nights, should you happen to be in Ireland) and this CD is a wonderful taste of their talents. It puts you in a pub and fills your ears with the sounds of Ireland, mostly traditional but sometimes with interesting arrangements, respectful of the rich history of Irish music. You can't go wrong with this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very interesting book, November 11, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very interesting book about the relationship between a high school student and teacher that extends long after the student has graduated. Because both student and teacher are math teachers, the correspondence between them frequently revolves aroung math problems that interest them, but it includes much more than that. Not being mathematically inclined whatsoever, I skipped over all the math, and found it a touching story. For those interested in the math too, it will be a double treat.
