Summer Reading Club 2018

Title: Lily and the Octopus
Author: Steven  Rowley
Review: If you've ever loved a dog then you can relate to how Ted feels about Lily and what he'll do to make her life comfortable.  Part reality, part fantasy but all emotion - you will cheer, you will laugh, you will cry but you will feel hopeful in the end.
Rating: 4

Title: Calypso
Author: David Sedaris
Review: The Sedaris brand of humor is evident in several of the essays in this, his latest collection.  However, there are many that deal with deaths in his family including his mother years ago and more recently, his sister.  It is a bit sobering along with the laughter.  I personally like listening to his books that he narrates rather than reading in my own voice
Rating: 3.5
