Overview

Like some, my first introduction to A Series of Unfortunate Events came over a decade ago when Jim Carrey, alongside Emily Browning, introduced the series through the movie version. However, nothing came thereafter until the announcement of a Netflix adaptation. So, like Recovery Road, I find myself intrigued enough to check out the book before the series and, let me tell you, so far so good.

Last updated on July 22nd, 2018 at 06:35 pm

Like many, I’m sure, with the trailer of Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children coming out, I found myself tickled by what this book could have held. For while I’ve seen it around for years, being that it had the oddest girl on the cover I thought it was something a bit too… peculiar. Now, though, being I’m more peculiar with each passing day, I decided to look into it and while it takes a few chapters to get to meet Ms. Peregrine, once you do, so begins the magic.

Beloved: Chapter 1 – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Welcome to this old haunted house.

Review (with Spoilers)

This is my 5th Toni Morrison book and if there is one thing I’ve learned thus far is, as hard as some of her books are to read, there is much satisfaction. As for the first chapter, I do find myself a bit confused as I try to grasp the who’s who of the story, since many names are flung about and reading Morrison is sometimes like trying to follow along with someone who talks fast with a diverse vocabulary. But still, with the idea of a 2 year old baby haunting a home which the mother doesn’t want to leave, and daughter sort of can’t, it sets up an odd introduction to say the least.
