I read American Gods last year. It is a great book up there with Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch<

How was this one? I read My Name is Red a couple of years ago and loved it so last year I picked-up Snow. I didn't care for it so I've been hesitant to read anything else by Pamuk.

It was interesting I thought, though I did not think it was quite as good as My Name is Red or Snow (which personally I loved).

Some of the writing is really good but I did feel that it dragged a bit in places.

Karol | 1763 comments Silver, I've heard quite a lot about A Thousand Cuts and I see you've given it a good rating. Any thoughts on the type of reader you'd recommend the book for?


message 37: by Silver (new)

Silver | 388 comments It was quite an interesting book.

I would say that this is a good book for readers who like thought provoking stories that offer a different perspective. It is also a good book for anyone who has an interest in the topic of bullying. In a way this book is kind of like a puzzle and you are given bits and pieces along the way to slowly start to form the fuller picture.

And this book is not your typical Crime/detective fiction but I think people who do enjoy those kind of books would like this one.

Kat Trina Sounds awesome, from the description! On my to-read list now :)

Karol | 1763 comments Silver, ditto what Kat said! Thanks for your comments.

How was this one? A couple of years ago I read The Passion of New Eve and have been meaning to pick-up another of Carter's books.

It was very strange, but it did have its interesting moments. I had mixed feelings about this one. I felt it started off really strong but towards the end it just started to get a bit more tedious for me.
