Entertaining Mr. Sloane by Joe Orton
Rate this book
Clear rating
If you want to read about odious, trailer trash characters, then you might enjoy this. Even the most normal person in this short play who I sort of feel sorry for, goes wacko without any warning signs whatsoever and stabs someone in the leg with a fo ...more

Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein
Rate this book
Clear rating
I really don't understand the iconic SciFi status of this book. Just because you mention the word "Martians" here and there, that doesn't make it science fiction. It's so boring and plodding I really didn't care what happened in the book; and believe ...more

Animal Farm by George Orwell
Rate this book
Clear rating
Oink, oink, piggies are taking over the world (or at least they want to). They plot the end of humanity and hope to rule the animal kingdom in its stead. But oink, oink: revolutions and coup d'états are tricky things: sometimes high ideals that sound ...more

Point Omega by Don DeLillo
Rate this book
Clear rating
A lonely, withdrawn, and introverted guy living in a big city wishes he could meet a girl. It's a simple premise but there's nothing simple about this book. Part of what I really like about the story and how DeLillo tells it, is the fact that I can't ...more

A young guy is impregnating all the girls in the village; he thinks he's a cool dude because he's supporting three of his kids, but who knows how many kids he really has (probably thirty). Then there's this other character (an old guy who's just as c ...more

The Third Lie by Ágota Kristóf
Rate this book
Clear rating
A story that can be read on so many levels: not least is the relationship between author and reader: the writer's power of invention (or, as the title suggests, his great facility for lies), and the reader's willingness to be mentally and emotionally ...more
