An Un-Calibrated Centrifuge

My dad once said to me, "You give a lot of books three stars." I do.

An Ocean Apart, A World Away

An Ocean Apart, a World Away - Lensey Namioka

I thought I would enjoy this book more than Ties That Bind, Ties that Break, but that wasn't the case. I wouldn't say I enjoyed it less, I just didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would.

 

It's still a good book.

 

There's a lot of racism that is probably correct for the time. There's a lot about American Indians in the book, including the belief that they have red skin. Everything is shown to be false, but some of it felt unnecessary to the story. There are also a few racial slurs in the book (Ch*nk, Ch*nam*n). Just in case you're sensitive to things like that.
