For my award winning reading workshop book I chose Red-Rose Chain by Jeffrey Moore. It won the Commonwealth Writers Award for the best first novel. It was his first book and was published in Canada to widespread critical acclaim before it was chosen for the award. The books main character is Jeremy Davenant who is a man that thinks that his life has been planned out for him since the day he was born. He is a professor at Montreal University but he never got his teaching credentials so he is ille [...]

You know how you have a couple books that you just come back to over, and over, and over again? Ones you fall in love with? This is one of those books, for me. I read it ages ago, I think it was shortly after it first came out, and I've re-read in many times since then. The characters are great (especially Uncle Gerard), the book is hilarious, and the writing is sublime: vivid, alive, engaging, precise. I left Montreal a long time ago, but this book takes me back to that time and place, which is [...]

One word, BORING. This book has very little story, I was more than half way through and I was "waiting" for the story to actually start. The main character is not likeable or relatable, other reviews praised the characters for being dark but I found the main character so uninteresting that I think dark is too complimentary, he was obsessive and pathetic. I found getting to the end of this book extremely long and tiring which just shows how little I enjoyed it. I am baffled at how this book has s [...]

I wish we could do a 0.5 rating because I would very much so like to give this book a 3.5! This book is brilliantly written or at least i think so and i absolutely love how the author tries to confuse us with all the mystery that really is not mystery but just a technique to keep the reader in suspense which i believe was a fail, it was obvious. I also love the main character's cynical, pessimistic, self-deprecating personality which is absolutely contradicting to his view of the world and how h [...]

Buffo, vitale, superstizioso, imbranato. E' Jeremy, il protagonista! La sua forza è la sua normalità, la capacità di convivere con le proprie debolezze.L'autore narra le vicende di Jeremy e di come la sua vita cambi radicalmente dopo l'incontro con Milena, la sua donna del destino o almeno così crede lui! Si perchè più che donna del destino, Milena sembrerebbe incarnare alla perfezione la donna di piccheNonostante tutto Jeremy è convinto che la loro unione sia predestinata, profondamente [...]

3.5 STARSInteresting, but not one that I'll ever be compelled to re-read. I didn't particularly care for the ending, but maybe that was the desired effect - for me to feel as frustrated as Jeremy.

It took a while for me to get into this book but it's actually quite funny.

I hated this book and couldn't believe it won a prize. Dark stupid characters.
