Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami

I really enjoyed this recent novel by Murakami. The story of the main character journeying to reconnect with old friends and learning a lot of things along the way is relatively simple but, as always, well written. The song that he continues to retur ...more

Jupiter's Travels by Ted Simon

The concept behind this book sounded great but it did take me a little while to get into the rhythm reading it. Overall the author does a great job describing the people, culture, and landscape that he travels on his motorcycle. However, there are so ...more

Alright so i only picked up this book because of the title. It sounded a little cheesy but got a lot of good reviews and I needed something to read so I bought it. I was pleasantly surprised. It was funny and easy to read. I guess it was originally w ...more

This book was a little strange. Very bukowski in that the main character drank a lot but had some strange aspects too. Characters claiming to be aliens, etc. not as strong as his dirtier, earlier stuff but still a decent read if you like Bukowski.

Written from the viewpoint of an autistic child, the book is easy to read and really inciteful. By the end of the story you can tell that dealing with this child is probably what caused his parents to separate. It's in some ways kind of heartbreaking ...more

The Things They Carried by Tim O'Brien
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is easily my favorite Tim O'Brien book. It's a collection fictional short stories related to being a soldier in Vietnam. I resisted reading it for a long time because I'm not a huge fan of war stories but once I picked it up I pretty much read i ...more

Not my favorite of O'Brien's book but easy to read and relatively interesting story. The main character is kind of an asshole and the other characters are equally strange/self-absorbed. you find yourself unsure who to even root for. A good read but n ...more
