Book Review: Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk

Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead - Olga Tokarczuk (Riverhead Books, 2019) I received an Advance Readers' Copy of this book. It is now available for sale in North America. It's hard to know how to classify a book like this. It's not a mystery though there is a mystery at the… Continue reading Book Review: Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead by Olga Tokarczuk

Book Review: Jesus the King by Timothy Keller

Jesus the King - Timothy Keller (Penguin Books, 2016) Timothy Keller is my favourite contemporary Christian writer. His exploration of the life of Jesus doesn't disappoint and even though it seems simple, Keller does an excellent job of looking at the story from multiple angles. Taking the Gospel of Mark, Keller examines who Jesus was.… Continue reading Book Review: Jesus the King by Timothy Keller

Book Review: Rue des Rosiers by Rhea Tregebov

Rue des Rosiers - Rhea Tregebov (Coteau Books, 2019) There's quite a lot packed into this novel about twenty-five year old Sarah Levine in 1982. While at times Tregebov's writing dips into the obvious and somewhat heavy-handed, overall I thought this was an excellent novel.The first half of the book takes place in Toronto where… Continue reading Book Review: Rue des Rosiers by Rhea Tregebov

Positive Discipline - Jane Nelson (Ballantine Books, 2006) Our local school district runs an early childhood education program for parents of children 5 and under. Once a season we can sign up for a class on parenting, appropriate for our child's age.

Book Review: Original Prin by Randy Boyagoda

Original Prin - Randy Boyagoda (Biblioasis, 2018) Satire is hard to pull off. Especially when that satire involves cancer, acts of terror, and religion. I'm not convinced that Original Prin pulls it off, though there are some interesting turns along the way. The novel starts strong on New Year's Day. Prin and his wife, Molly,… Continue reading Book Review: Original Prin by Randy Boyagoda
