Rich in providing a wonderful insight into myself, a confirmed introvert but with some extrovert tendencies. Rich in discussion of interactions between intros and extros. Rich in providing guidance on how to raise, teach, encourage intro and extro children. Rich in how to succeed in a business world where extros seem to be the "chosen ones" to lead us to the promised land of success.… (meer)

kaulsu (4): I've not previously read anything by Allende. I am told each of her novels is unlike the last. It took me a minute to get into the flash backs, but (I work in a retirement community) I did enjoy it.

Proulx is the master of memorable, complex characters, and she dishes out a feast of them in this multi-generational historical saga.

Their descendants pick up the story, plundering the vast North American forests, including Michigan's white pines, as loggers and lumber barons through three centuries. Proulx's prose is as magnificent as her scope.… (meer)
