NOS4A2 is one of the most macabre books I've ever read.

The story is painstakingly described, with lots of details. At first, we don't understand how everything will fit together -- but it does. In one thread, we have Manx, a sinister man who picks up...more

I have mixed feelings about Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock. It is well written and a riveting story, but I came out feeling really unsatisfied.

It's Leonard's 18th birthday and no one remembers. He doesn't have many friends, and is obviously very trouble...more

The Here and Now is time travel done well, We don't get much of the "how" of the time travel, but that's OK. It's the "why" that is important.
