I was browsing at the library one day (something I rarely do) when I saw this book on a shelf. "Hey, I'm a big sports fan. I bet I'll like this," I thought to myself. Imagine my surprise when I began to flip through it and the first picture I saw was ...more

Llosa definitely knows how to write engaging prose, how to make you feel like you're there in the scene. I was duly impressed. On the other hand, I didn't understand what was happening half the time.

This month's book club selection. Most of us loved it. Although it can often be a bit gross/gory, I found it beautiful, touching, and moving. It's an engrossing exploration of the meaning of life, and how we find relevance in a world that is constant ...more
