Reading each character's POV--all four, five times--you get the following revelation: This man is the perfect character. You could write an entire novel with each one. Personalities are ingrained in the narrative in such a way that you believe them a ...more

Anansi Boys
by Neil Gaiman (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
A delight (& the first of Gaiman's books that I've read to get the full ***** from me)! It's got that outrageous "Freaky Friday"/Prince & the Pauper narrative; Britishisms a-la Evelyn Waugh; and a peck of Douglas Adams's brand of whimsy (this ...more

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
Rate this book
Clear rating
Because it--coupled with a once-in-a-lifetime trip into el mero corazon Azteca i.e. Mexico, Distrito Federal--affected me so much at just the correct time, "Homegoing" for me is THE BOOK OF THE YEAR. It tackles huge themes (the main & overpowerin ...more

The Cement Garden by Ian McEwan

Will ever these tales of incest cease? Well, my true guess is no, for they sure do captivate (lookin' atchu V.C. Andrews [...R.I.P., girl]!). Another case in point: this early novel from major Nobel contender (I'm certain of this, right?) Ian McEwan. ...more

Hey, is it just me, or is "American Horror Story Roanoke" episodes 1-5 a mega rip off of this? Only those that have read House of Leaves can possibly know...

As avant garde as any novel's got the right to be! It is all about condensing and expanding t

MaddAddam by Margaret Atwood
Rate this book

I have completion anxiety, or whatever it's called. If it's a trilogy of books we are talking about, YES, it WILL take me YEARS to complete. Thankfully, Maddaddam book three immediately reminds you of why you fell in love with Atwood's postapocalypti ...more

How does the nihilism of my favorite movie in high school translate to today? And yeah, this is actually an exercise in gauging personal growth. Like, the craziness the Palahniuk made famous, the meanness mixed with comedy, the violence creating a wh ...more

Yes, yes! I AM a grown-ass man reading this, but I'm not ashamed. I also read the "Twilight" sa(ha-ha!)ga & a bunch of Charlaine Harris as well, remember? Some rules simply do not apply.

What I tried to do here was dispel the extra melodrama and e

At Swim, Two Boys by Jamie O'Neill
Rate this book
Clear rating
Is it Mr. O'Neill's thesis that a novel can become even more memorable than a song? In this lyrically dense and character-driven novel, prose beautifully attempts to become lyric and vice versa: the story's universal edge gives it a gravity that's mo ...more
