I started to get fed up with Saramago at the beginning of this book, but by the end he had me in his hands again, lost in a sea of names!

This was my favorite book for a number of years. And yes, I know Saramago is a communist. And yes, I know they're making a movie of it. And, yes the movie will be crappy.

The first half of this book blew me away. I can't remember much of what happened in the second half, thus the four, not five, stars.

Three stars from me is solid. But honestly I don't remember much about this book, other than some guys waiting in a car on a stakeout. If I don't remember more than that, your not gonna get above three stars.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami

Historical-psychedelic-surrealist. Quite a book. I think Murakami's descriptions of omelets make me hungrier than any other description of food I've ever read.
