Book Worm: February Recap

Beautiful Chaos/Beautiful Redemption (Caster Chronicles #3 and #4) by 
Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
The last two books in the Caster Chronicles Series. Ethan is again faced with a dilemma that could mean losing everything.. his family, his life in Gatlin, and of course, Lena. This series was just so-so for me. I loved the characters, but I felt it got to become a bit ridiculous and redundant. I am however interested in how they depict the book in the movies, which I feel might be a bit better.

Unbroken: A WWII Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
Wow! This was an eye opener for me. Everything about this story was interesting to me, and the best part is that it is a true story. Since it is about World War II, me being from Hawaii and of Japanese ancestry, I felt a deeper connection. Louie Zamperini was a rising Olympic track star when World War II broke out. He was then enlisted into the Air Force where he was put through, pretty much the impossible. But no matter what he was put through, it never broke him or his will to survive. What interested me the most were the POW camps in Japan. I had no idea the conditions that POW's had to live in and the struggles they went through. I highly highly recommend this book. I'm not too much of a war or history buff, but this story is just not worth passing up.

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
I believe this book was part of my High School summer reading, but me being the perfect student and all, didn't read it.. lol Since the movie is coming out soon, I thought I would read it before seeing the movie. It wasn't exactly what I had expected at first. I thought it would be in the perspective of Gatsby himself, but instead the narrator was his neighbor and cousin of Daisy Buchannan (Gatsby's love interest). Mr. Gatsby definitely lives in the lap of luxury, but you can feel the loneliness in him, even though he is always surrounded by tons of people at his house soirees. It has its scandalous moments in the novel, but it ends a bit abruptly. Since it is a classic, it is a good short story to have around the house.
