C. Scott C. Scott said: " Like strong blotter acid, Hunter Thompson is best enjoyed in small doses. The book takes forever to get through because who wants to sit down and plow through 50 pages of Thompson's rants at once? If you're going to appreciate his wit and his madness ...more "

Pity the Billionaire by Thomas Frank

Thomas Frank is great. He is one of the few commentators whose analysis provides true insight about the political economy. This is the fifth book I've read by him and I would rank this one behind only What's the Matter with Kansas as my favorite.

After Dark by Haruki Murakami

I love Murakami. His books have such a distinct mood and feeling. This pairs nicely with the subject matter of this book because late nights, when most of the world around you is sleeping, also have a very distinct mood and feeling. Murakami combines ...more

I've read at least a dozen of Leonard's crime novels but this was my first Western. It was great. The Bounty Hunters had the same fast plot and storytelling I always enjoy from his later work. Very entertaining. The only thing that detracted slightly ...more

I love how neoliberal economics are a recurring villain in Flynn's books! The post-Reagan economy's impact on the characters is always lurking in the background. It's part of what makes Flynn's work feel so real and current.

“Let’s de-bunk some of this, shall we? Myth 1– Kings and Queens are divine beings – rubbish. Kings and queens of old were murdering bastards who ruled with a rod of iron. Myth 2 – the rich prosper out of godliness – more rubbish. They gained their wealth by royal patronage and taxing and stealing from the masses. Myth 3 - the poor are poor because they’re depraved – yet more rubbish. They’re poor because of their naivety and childlike belief in, oh yes, Kings and Queens, the Church and the order of things. Finally, Myth 4 - women are evil and deliberately seductive – the biggest nonsense of all. Women are sexually attractive to men because they are the opposite sex to men; it’s not hard to see, is it? It’s the same for every species on the planet, you can see it in any mating ritual on the Discovery channel but this truth has been reversed and buried under the eternal lie fostered upon us by the church. That’s what the bible has achieved and that’s why our society is divided and divided again. That’s why we are never working as one, because religion was designed to divide and rule the masses,” she broke off and looked deliberately round the room, “but the big question is, for what purpose and by whom?”
