Read from March 30 to 31, 2012

It was late winter in 2004 and we were in London. A friend of the family gushed over Absolute Friends, stating it was the only book that he and his father had agreed upon. Flipping ahead eight years, I can understand why the book was so received but that doesn't mean I liked it. Linking the Cold War, protest movements and the evangelical tone of the War on Terror, the novel is sympathetic but sort of blurred: a gestalt where Rupert Murdoch and George Soros are really the same person, or at least the same Interests.
