re: Recommend a book - Charter Embers
[quote]The Complete Short Stories of Ernest Hemingway[/quote] is an easy read, and one that you won’t feel obligated to finish. Can read a story or two in one sitting. Plus there’s several stories that are set in the Michigan outdoors, which sounds similar to where you’re going. ...

re: What are you reading? - Charter Embers
[i]The Moor’s Last Sigh[/i] per a rec from this board. Took awhile to get used to his writing style; page length sentences with every form of punctuation included lol, but I’ve enjoyed it since the first page. Normally I have an idea of what an author is doing and how they are doing it, but this b...

re: This might be a silly question, but how do you track contemporary good literature? - Charter Embers
I’d say start with the book awards, enter the ones you like onto a Goodreads account, and go from there. But in my experience, it’s a low percentage shot. The books never seem to live up to what they’re proclaimed to be, to me anyway. The decades of criticism that the classics go through does t...

re: The Hunger Games Trilogy - Charter Embers
I agree. Building tension from this love triangle starting in the first book, back and forth throughout the series, and in the end Gale’s superiors make the choice for her lol. I know Gale not being phased by the civilian deaths tripped her up, but she didn’t seem that enthusiastic about Peeta eit...

re: Recommend a book for my 10 year old boy? - Charter Embers
I really liked [i]Onion John[/i] at that age. It’s about a twelve year old boy who befriends an immigrant handyman. Don’t remember much about about the story, but it’s one of the first books that I have an emotional memory of. Idyllic Midwestern setting...

re: I’m going to reread The Great Gatsby in honor of the 20s - Charter Embers
[i]Tender is the night[/i] is good too. It’s a shame he couldn’t focus more on writing, and writing for artistic value instead of money solely. Hemingway, although admittedly jealous, makes it seem like Scott was all over the place, due to alcohol and Zelda. That scene in [i]A Movable Feast[/i] I ...
