Adventures from reading books captured within short reviews.

House of Sand and Fog - Andre Dubus III I read this before my Goodreads.com days, thus I didn't write a review of my own. However, the following review from the PageADay Booklover's Calendar for 2/18/2013 reminded me of it, and so I'm posting it here:

In this intense and dramatic novel, Andre Dubus does a masterful job of portraying two completely different people fighting over ownership of a house. Although the reader understands why each of them resents and mistrusts the other, the characters themselves simply cannot bridge the gap. The results are potentially devastating for all. A genuinely thoughtful and suspenseful read, and a National Book Award finalist.
