Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

October 8, 2008 at 8:16 am Leave a comment

I read this based on a recommendation from a blog I read. The cover reads: “I have not survived against all odds. I have not lived to tell. I have not witnessed the extraordinary. This is my story.” This book is supposed to be a peek into life at the beginning of the 21st century and I believe the author achieves that. Various anecdotes and thoughts about life are filed alphabetically and they all make for an entertaining glimpse into her life.

It was a quick read and I enjoyed it. That’s really all I have to say. Well maybe not, I thought about AJ Jacob’s book The Know It All while reading this. Refer to my entry about his book for more. I was trying to do a comparison but it wasn’t really possible as both books have different goals. But the theme of encyclopedias resonated with me. I wonder what an encyclopedia of my life would look like.
