This week's book reviews, by Connie Forst, as submitted for publication in the Tofield Mercury.
The graveyard book / Neil Gaiman
Nobody Owens is a normal boy, except that he has been raised by ghosts and other denizens of the graveyard.
The shortest distance between two women / Kris Radish
Just when you think your own family is nuts, along comes the fiercest, funniest, and most dysfunctional clan that ever had a family reunion. Radish shows that the shortest distance between two women just might be a tale that bridged the gap between sisters, mothers, and daughters, family and friendship.
Canada's Olympic hockey history 1920-2010 / Andrew Podnieks
In 1920, hockey made its Olympic debut. Canada skated away with the gold in that series, and has done so six more times. In this book, author Andrew Podnieks' collaboration with Hockey Canada offers a comprehensive, fascinating look at almost a century of this country's Olympic hockey history, including both the men's and women's teams.
Motormouth : the complete Canadian car-buying guide / Zack Spencer
"Motormouth" is the distillation of 25 years of automotive journalism, consumer advocacy, and interaction with car buyers, young and old, from across Canada. Its personable, engaging and easy-to-read style will appeal to consumers as they decide what kind of vehicle they want, whether to buy or lease, and go new or used, with tips, stories and enough technical information to properly inform them, and "best buys" to help make the final decision.
