RuRu by Kim Thúy

“An autobiographical story of a Vietnamese Canadian, told in ultra-short scenes (vignettes), using poetic language. I can’t decide if I like this book or not. Maybe I read this book too fast, as the language sometimes felt choppy and the scenes too scattered. I may need to give it another try.”  ~Patron review, August 2015

**Kim Thúy will be coming to St. Albert Library on October 28 as part of STARFest 2015**

6257535New York by Edward Rutherfurd

“As the characters develop I found it interesting to grow with them and learn how history impacted them. I appreciated how the author introduced different characters, different cultures and tied them to a significant historical event. I did find it tough to remember all the linkages and felt it sometimes digresses. Overall enjoyed it.” ~Patron review, August 2015
