Recommended Reading

Sorry, faithful readers (of which there are currently very few). I have not posted in a while, but I was distracted by several airplanes and fluffy blue bathroom slippers.

This week, I recommend Player Piano, by Kurt Vonnegut. Good book, imaginative author, and machines taking over the economic sector - who could ask for more? Well, it is missing the fluffy blue slippers, but whatever. The Shah makes it all worth it - he cannot grasp the concept of citizen and refers to all non-government people as takaru, meaning slave.

Yep. We're all slaves. Yell it to the world: I'm a slave, and I don't give a damn!

Because obviously, you don't. Otherwise, you wouldn't need to be reading this.

I have decided to remove the Week number on my titles; they make for rather uninteresting typing.

This week, I recommend Elsewhere, by Gabrielle Zevin. I haven't actually read it, but my book club is - and I doubt they'd be reading something if it wasn't good. Anyhow, I trust in the Book Club.

Recommended Reading Week 4

So, my friends, this week I'm not going to be recommending a published work; rather, you can view this project by my good friend Alic Szecsei here. It is being updated (as works in progress are apt to do), but you can read what he's got so far and comment however you like (I'm thinking predictions would be cool).

The purpose is to make a School Story without any stereotypical plot elements, characters, or themes. Needless to say, it's a big task, but Alic thinks it'll be fun.

Recommended Reading, Week 3

Welcome back. This week, I recommend Moonraker, by Ian Fleming. Well, duh, it's 007, but it is his second best (#1 goes to Casino Royale, but you've probably read it). Bond is back and better than ever as he races to discover the secret behind a prominent German's contribution of a rocket to the British. Rating: A-

Recommended Reading, Week 2

This week, I picked The Godfather by Mario Puzo. Although this is a look into the gritty underworld, it maintains a feeling that it is not evil, although the events certainly are. This is a dangerous book if put into the wrong hands, but an extraordinary read. Rating: A
