MY THOUGHTS
ABOUT THIS BOOK

 Rating systemRating systemRating systemRating systemRating system

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.

Reading Outside My Comfort Zone

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:

  1. 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
  2. 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!
  3. Neverwhere, by Neil Gaiman.
    I usually do not read Fantasy, BUT when you have such a gifted author AND narrator, why not?
  4. 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.
