Killing Commendatore

Killing Commendatore

I devoured this new 680 page novel by Murakami, and I’m still a bit stunned by its beauty, and disappointed I’m done. So far, I kept saying 1Q84 was my favorite by him, but now this one replaces the top place in my chart.
Come back tomorrow to read my full review!

 

 

Being There

Being There

I just watched this classic movie, and thought it might be good to read the book. I was shocked to realize, thanks to my lists, that I had read it about 10 years ago, and could not remember doing so, even after rereading the first pages. So I reread it all, it took only a few hours. It’s good, but I think the movie did a fantastic job, and the movie’s ending has more meaning to me than the book’s.

Newcomer

Another cleverly plotted and structured mystery by the Japanese master of the genre! Highly recommended for all lovers of smart stories, and readers interested in diverse and international literature.
I’m doubly excited for this one, because it’s my first review for Criminal Element. I’ll post my review when it’s live on their site

 

 

 99 ways to tell a story

99 Ways to Tell a Story

The Oulipo movement has always attracted me, for instance in the writings by Georges Pérec, Italo Calvino (see my review of his amazing If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler), and obviously its founder: Raymond Queneau and his famous Exercices de Style (Exercises in Style): he takes one short and simple event, and then retells that same thing in 99 different styles.
Matt Madden does a fantastic job by doing the exact same thing, but this time all in different variations with graphics and comics.
For each, you have the genre on the left page, and the variation itself on the right. The Book Inspector has a cool video of it, You can pause to look closer at each page, that will give you a great idea of what this is all about.
So well done. I really enjoyed it a lot.
