What I'm reading, Twitter style

...to be fair, it's more like a few of what I've read and a few of what I'm reading.


Crank: On audio - Kristina's deep decent into meth use. Powerful & terrifying yet gripping listen. Will turn anyone off to thought of using drugs.



Feed:
All in society born with feeds telling them how to live, act, buy. Feeds get hacked. Who will survive? May make you cry. BEST AUDIOBOOK EVER.




Someone Named Eva: World War II story. Czech-born Milada taken to reprogramming camp & adopted to German family. Becomes Eve. Terrifying based-on-truth story.



An Off Year: What happens when you turn around and decide not to go to college? A lot of nothing, in this case. Book about nothing but still interesting.



A Great and Terrible Beauty: Slow moving with little action and not yet compelling enough to begin my 4th audio disc. Seems like so many other books & not that exciting.



Her Fearful Symmetry: No candle to author's prior works. Poor editing & writing style. Story of twins & too much happenstance. Can't tell story on chances alone.

  1. Oh, no. I've got "Her Fearful Symmetry" on my pile...I'm so sad to hear that it's not so good.

    But I do love this feature. Great way to talk about a lot of books.

  2. Ahhh, I should make clear I'm only about 100 pages in. I don't think "Her Fearful Symmetry" is awful. It's just got poor writing/editing (overuse of semicolons drives me NUTS) and the story's not as compelling as her others. I'm hoping it gets better!

  3. AGATB almost killed me. The longest 12 cds of my life. Or however many it was - I've blocked it.
