Southeast Book Club, Thursday, June 28 @6:45pm. The Orphan Master's Son by Adam Johnson. An epic novel and a thrilling literary discovery, The Orphan Master’s Son follows a young man’s journey through the icy waters, dark tunnels, and eerie spy chambers of the world’s most mysterious dictatorship, North Korea.
The Orphan Master's Son, by Adam Johnson (adult fiction). Winner of the 2013 Pulitzer Prize. The son of a singer mother whose career forcibly separated her from her family and an influential father who runs an orphan work camp, Pak Jun Do rises to prominence using instinctive talents and eventually becomes a professional kidnapper and romantic rival to Kim Jong Il.
A Pulitzer Prize winner, Adam Johnson's Orphan Master's Son is simply fantastic. A story about a "hero", Jun Do (John Doe) and his "biography" to freedom through deceit, love, and a socialist community based in North Korea.

Alison Weir: The Lady In The Tower On my to read list
Nearly five hundred years after her violent death, Anne Boleyn, second wife to Henry VIII, remains one of the world's most fascinating, controversial, and tragic heroines. Now acclaimed historian and bestselling author Alison Weir has drawn on myriad sources from the Tudor era to give us the first book that examines, in unprecedented depth, the gripping, dark, and chilling story of Anne Boleyn's final days. The tempestuous love affair between Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn scandalized Christendom and altered forever the religious landscape of England. Anne's ascent from private gentlewoman to queen was astonishing, but equally compelling was her shockingly swift downfall. Charged with high treason and imprisoned in the Tower of London in May 1536, Anne met her terrible end all the while protesting her innocence. There remains, however, much mystery surrounding the queen's arrest and the events leading up to it: Were charges against her fabricated because she stood in the way of Henry VIII making a third marriage and siring an heir, or was she the victim of a more complex plot fueled by court politics and deadly rivalry? The Lady in the Tower examines in engrossing detail the motives and intrigues of those who helped to seal the queen's fate. Weir unravels the tragic tale of Anne's fall, from her miscarriage of the son who would have saved her to the horrors of her incarceration and that final, dramatic scene on the scaffold. What emerges is an extraordinary portrayal of a woman of great courage whose enemies were bent on utterly destroying her, and who was tested to the extreme by the terrible plight in which she found herself. Richly researched and utterly captivating, The Lady in the Tower presents the full array of evidence of Anne Boleyn's guilt—or innocence. Only in Alison Weir's capable hands can readers learn the truth about the fate of one of the most influential and important women in English history.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Jay Gatsby, High School, Books I Ve, Reading List, Scott Fitzgerald, Favorite Books, Daisy Buchanan, Time Favorite
One of the great classics of twentieth-century literature, The Great Gatsby stands as the supreme achievement of F. Scott Fitzgerald's career. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Read it for school earlier this year, and it's one of my favorite books of all time. Plus, the movie looks like it should be great.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald The timeless story of Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan is widely acknowledged to be the closest thing to the Great American Novel ever written.
The timeless story of Jay Gatsby and his love for Daisy Buchanan is widely acknowledged to be the closest thing to the Great American Novel ever written. Considered Fitzgerald's best work, The Great Gatsby is a mystical, timeless story of integrity and cruelty, vision and despair.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald: The mysterious Jay Gatsby embodies the American notion that it is possible to redefine oneself and persuade the world to accept that definition. Gatsby's youthful neighbor, Nick Carraway, fascinated with the display of enormous wealth in which Gatsby revels, finds himself swept up in the lavish lifestyle of Long Island society during the Jazz Age.
Want to read / book I should have read in high school: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
One of my all time favorite books.
School's almost back in session — have you finished your Summer reading? We may no longer have the pressure of a required reading list to motivate us to dive into the classics, but without the stress of potential pop quizzes or book reports
I stumbled upon a book-related blog hop yesterday... ...and naturally, I have opinions about books. Two of the bloggers read classics. Abbey at Finding My Forever read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. I like this book, but it's not one of my all-time favorites. What's your opinion of Gatsby - love it or hate it? Will you see the new movie, with Leo DiCaprio, when it comes out? I'm sure I will, eventually. I love Leo, but it's going to be awfully hard for him to out-Gatsby Robert Redford. Belle at The Life and Times of Belle tackled Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. GWTW is an intimidatingly large book, which I'm sure turns some people off from reading it. It's also problematic because of the characters' racism, which is nauseating (but true to the time period in which the story takes place). Still, I contend this book is very definitely worth reading. It's a great story. Love it or hate it? You should also, definitely, watch the movie, even though (like From Here to Eternity) it leaves out quite a bit of plot and characters. If you've only ever seen the movie, you don't know that Charles and Scarlett had a son. Clark Gable aside: I happened to watch Public Enemies yesterday (because Christian Bale), and this time I noted a) that I don't like it when Christian Bale shoots Channing Tatum - I don't care if he is Pretty Boy Floyd; b) Emilie de Ravin of Lost and Remember Me has a small role; and c) the movie which John Dillinger is leaving when killed is Manhattan Melodrama, starring Clark Gable and Myrna Loy. You'll get to see a few moments of it - along with Johnny Depp reacting to the gangster story - as you watch Public Enemies. I'm pro-Gatsby and pro-GWTW, but I can't quite decide whether or not to like the music of Azealia Banks. "Liquorice" gets stuck in my head, but I'm not sure whether to applaud the bold sexuality in it or frown on the artist for (in this song) aspiring to be nothing more than a male fantasy - or both. On the one hand, the word-picture she's painting is like that of the women Amy Winehouse mocks in "Fuck Me Pumps." On the other hand, who am I to judge? as argued by Salt N Pepa in "None of Your Business." Adults are free to make their own sexual choices among other consenting adults. Plus, you can dance to "Liquorice." Azealia Banks - love her music or hate her music?

Chelsea Handler.....funniest book
It's Sunday night and I just finished reading this book! I have never been a reader! never! I hate reading and it really bugs me how people always say that books are better than movies! I had started reading this book like literally 6 months ago and put it down on my computer desk and forgot about it until about a week ago. I had a sudden urge to read last week some time. I just wanted to read something. So I picked this book up off my desk and read about 20 pages a night and just finished it! :D It is hilarious! I love the way that the book is written. Each Chapter is like it's own story so it doesn't feel like you're reading about ONE thing the entire book. It's a different incident of her life in each chapter. One chapter may be about a one night stand and another chapter may be about a trip she took to another country. You never know with her! Have any of you guys ever read Chelsea Handler's books? Or even watched her comedy show on The E channel? She is so funny! I wouldn't recommend this book to those of you who are strongly against foul language and what not, but if it doesn't bother you then read this book nowww! She has many other books like: This is her first book. I read out of order, but that's okay. She is hilarious and I can't wait to read her other books! I may actually like to read now! It's a good hobby I need to pick up because my vocabulary is probably equal to a 6th graders && that is awful! I admit. xoxo Lauren

My review of Nicole Krauss' History of Love: http://laurenstacks.com/2010/01/07/book-ends-book-list-the-history-of-love/ One of my favorite books, ever.
This is not a simple, cheesy romance. This is about love and all the other feelings that go with it. It is a wonderful book, well worth reading.
