Monday Good Reads #3

I promised I would pick a book I wasn’t assigned for class!!  Today’s book is a novel that gripped me so hard I couldn’t put it down– I zoomed right through it. It also made me cry (something books/movies/etc rarely have the power to do).

House of Sand and Fog by Andre Dubus III is about a foreclosed house that a Middle Eastern family moves into–meanwhile the previous owner does everything in her power to get it back. I’m really not going to go into a lot of details because the plot is so good I want you to experience it for yourself.

A movie was made in 2003 starring Ben Kingsley and Jennifer Connelly. It too is excellent, but read the book first (as if I even need to remind you of this…).
