Margaret Gleeson [Fall 2006]

Tech Services Librarian

Allegra Goodman has a new novel titled Intuition. Readers who would be put off by the title needn't be. The subject she writes about, life in a postdoctoral research facility, is far from the occult. I enjoy psychological fiction, as in Ruth Rendall. Although lives hang in the balance in more ways than one, this kept my attention without the usual suspense, sex and murder one encounters everywhere nowadays. A refreshing slice of life.

Umang Kumar [March 2005]

The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini. A lucid and poignant portrayal of a story partly set in Afghanistan. Touted as the first Afghan novel in English. Very fluent read.
