Author: Barney Stinson with Matt Kuhn
Themes/Topics: Humor, Bros
If you like the show How I Met Your Mother, you will find this book amusing. It contains the Bro Code, as written by Barney, complete with amendments. It is an extremely quick read, more anecdotal than anything, but a lot of fun. It also references the show often so this is a read for a true fan.
Author: Alice Hoffman
Themes/Topics: Religious Persecution, Family, Nature
Alice Hoffman is one of my favorite authors, but I didn't like this as much. Her young adult literature doesn't have the same feel as the rest of her writings, some of the nature imagery was there, but not enough for my liking.
