The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

House of Sand and Fog - Andre Dubus III - A Short Summary and Review


A short summary of House of Sand and Fog:

The high cost of home ownership and the problems of paperwork.

My favorite Andre Dubus III quote from the book:

"Regret was fear's big sister."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How much do you care about your social standing?

Who should pay for bureaucratic mistakes?

My review of House of Sand and Fog:

So much tragedy in a book, I couldn't put it down.

I couldn't decide whose side I was on.

THE ENDING! I couldn't believe it.
