In my last review on The Invoice, I highlighted its nice message on life.
I’m now thrilled to talk a bit about the book I was assigned to read for The Classics Club spin #14. It fell on number 1, which on my list was A Wizard of Earthsea. Though in a very different genre, it conveys a unique message on life.
Dec 14 is for 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 satireand 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.
