Emma
Date Posted: 2/21/2010 | Go To Book Page

overkill on the description of the events and every day routines.  Somewhat predictable on where the relationships will lead.  Enjoyed getting a feel for lifestyles and social classes in the 1800s as well as the unfolding of the character of Emma.  There was so much detail building up to the finale but the finale itself was wrapped up so quickly.  Almost as if the author was tired of writing and wanted to finish.

In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex

Enjoyed this book.  Learned alot about life of the Nantucket community and the Quaker belief system.  Although the whaling industry is hard to absorb because of the brutality of the industry, it was interesting to learn about this line of work as it is a part of our history.  The story of survival was also interesting.  In particular how different attitudes and/or techniques can effect the end result.

Interesting perspective on how different people affect our lives including people that lived before we were born.  Also how our lives affect others.
