Reading Outside My Comfort Zone – Surprise Find(s) This Year
Out of the over 100 books I read this year, 4 were outside my comfort zone, but I really enjoyed them:
- Look Who’s Back, by Timur Vernes.
This is pure satire and very funny on a very painful topic. Usually I hate that type of thing, but this was so well written, it really worked for me
- Floats the Dark Shadow, by Yves Fey.
This is a historical mystery, a favorite category of mine, BUT this one is VERY dark, noir, and creepy. Usually I give up when it’s too much for me, but I could not escape that one!
- Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman.
I usually do not read Fantasy, BUT when you have such a gifted author AND narrator, why not?
- The Martian, by Andy Weir.
I do enjoy science-fiction, from time to time, but this one had a lot of technical details, which I’m usually not too fond of. It works here though combined with the other elemenst.
