Ghost of Books Past #3

Rahab's Story: This was a re-read but it's still one of my favorites. It takes the little bit the Bible tells about Rahab and makes it into a whole story about what may have happened. 3 1/2 / 5

The DaVinci Cod: This was a parody of the Da Vinci Code. I think someone who didn't like the original book would enjoy it more, though. 2 / 5

The Pearl: This is another short book that packs a punch. You can read this in one sitting for a really thought provoking story 3 1/2 / 5

The Crucible: I had to read this for school. I wasn't very impressed. 2 / 5

The Case For a Creator (student edition): I love Lee Strobel's books. They give actual proof for my religious beliefs, which is what most people demand when they question a Christian. 3 / 5

Ethan Frome: Everyone in my class hated this book because they don't think "picking apart" a book is right. If you took away the symbolism from this book, it wouldn't amount to anything at all. One way to tell what kind of a reader a person is is to ask them what they think about a book like this. If they say "stupid," they obviously don't read correctly. 4 / 5

The Secret Garden: This was one book I didn't get to read when I was little. I probably wouldn't have liked it anyway. 3 / 5
