A Million Little Pieces by James Frey
Rate this book
Clear rating
Clearly he is a peddling phony shit. Clearly he is patho. Clearly he wishes he was this macho character he paints. Clearly, he is troubled. I must admit, I liked it for all these reasons. I'm sure a partial memoir of someone's life and that's good ...more

Indecision by Benjamin Kunkel
Rate this book
Clear rating
I truly enjoyed this one. It was less the plot - his quest to cure indecision - but more the language and relationship dynamics which are truly entertaining. He captures a unique NYC life and will read more of what he writes whenever he writes it. I ...more

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man by James Joyce
Rate this book
Clear rating
This one is a treat once you get past not understanding most of the words as they written. If you are able to move beyond this, an illuminating account of an adolescent Joyce - with all of his conflict and dysfunction - emerges. I like that reading ...more

Travels by Michael Crichton
Rate this book
Clear rating
I read this on a friend's recommendation and found it (i) inspired me to travel to remote places, (ii) made a compelling, believable argument for the presence of energy, modes of communication (with the past and future, as well as with each other), ...more

Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Rate this book
Clear rating
I liked the metaphors, religious and zoological elements, as well as journey that Pi goes on. It is quite gripping. I found the beginning particularly slow and the end anti-climactic, consdering especially how much talk I'd heard about 'the ending' ...more

Lunar Park by Bret Easton Ellis
Rate this book
Clear rating
Provocative relationship and cocaine sequences, boring and unnecessary ghost tale follows. Some of his pretentiousness was entertaining, too, but mostly it doesn't work...and if I hadn't thought it would spice up in the end (another bathroom drug ...more
