The Good Earth
Author
Pearl S. Buck
Review
This is a classic Pulitzer Prize winning novel published in 1931 that tells the story of a Chinese farmer, Wang Lu, and his family's struggles to survive. It graphically depicts the best and worst times of their lives. It is a timeless story that reveals the true character of a man who has experienced deprivation and abundance. This story helped me appreciate the things in life I often take for granted.   Reserve a copy!

The Boy Detective Fails
Author
Joe Meno
Review
A feel good book; in that the events within will make you feel good about your own life.
It follows the story of a man who used to solve crimes with his sister, until she committed suicide.
After leaving a mental institute, he attempts to rekindle his detective skill by investigating the death of his sister.
A great book to delve into the world of someone who's lost sight of the meaning to their life; and filled with wonderfully dry humor.  Reserve a copy!
