Love me some Dooce. This woman rocks the blogosphere, and her site (dooce.com) is one of my must-reads. Reading her account of pregnancy, delivery, and the first post-partum months (which included lots of screaming--both on the baby's part and on her part--and a bout of post-partum depression), was an interesting experience, to say the least, considering I was about 12 weeks along in my own pregnancy at the time. One factor that makes Armstrong's writing works so well is her hilarious use of exaggeration, but I have to admit it got a little old in this read, especially when every other sentence was clearly hyperbole. It gave me a bit of insight about what the next year holds for me (which I took with a grain--or rather a tablespoonful--of salt, given her tendency to exaggerate EVERYTHING), and it also left me with an overwhelming sense of relief that my experience thus far had been a breeze compared to what she went through. In summary, I love that this woman's emotion--whether she's ranting about life or swooning over her newborn child--is so raw and real. It's no surprise that millions of women find her so relatable and read her blog faithfully.
Good nutritional read. Helped understand how cancer is more a disease of affluence. What I didn't like about the book was that I wasn't able to read about the specifics of the studies that were performed. I would have liked to read more of the actual research, but overall it was a good book. I also enjoyed the diagrams and pictures.

Title is full name of young boy (12-ish) who recounts the not-so-good events during the week leading up to and during Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Saint is a musician living in Treme, New Orleans, who stays behind during the evacuation to search for the stray dog he helps care for. Was prepared for this to be brutal and hard-to-read but it was a really focused, approachable look at a little slice of life. Nicely done!
