Note about my Reviews

Dear Authors: The reviews in this blog are only personal opinions. I have absolutely no background in literature, writing or reviewing. I am a Librarian (actually a Library Technician for those who care OR know the difference) with a love for a good story. The opinions in the reviews are ONLY my OPINIONS. I am not commenting on the writers ability since well -- I am not a writer and never will be. If you are the author of any of the books reviewed here, my opinion is just that and not a judgment against you!

Rapid Fire Review: Carrying Albert Home by Homer Hickam

Carrying Albert Home: The Somewhat True Story of A Man, His Wife, and Her AlligatorCarrying Albert Home: The Somewhat True Story of A Man, His Wife, and Her Alligator by Homer Hickam
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Quirky and sweet at times but my enjoyment of the story is coloured by my dislike of the main female character. She reminded me too much of a best friend I had broken up with. I couldn't understand the fascination with her. Way too self involved and vain. Unfortunately, it really affected my enjoyment of the story. I loved the Alligator and the rooster though and some of the situations were quite delightful. Will appeal to those who enjoyed The 100 year old man who climbed out the window and Forrest Gump. Will keep it and re read in a couple of years and see if I enjoy it more. Have heard others have really enjoyed, so please keep that in mind. I however review my books based on MY enjoyment of the story, not the quality of the writing. The writing is fantastic and the author tells a tale beautifully. Just a wee bit sensitive about vain self involved girls these days. But again I loved the frickin Alligator. And the story kept me reading even-though I seriously disliked the Mom
