So, what did I read this past month?
Natsuo Kirino’s thriller “Out” totally sucked me in. A dark book, but really engrossing and thoughtprovoking. I finished Italo Calvino’s Cosmicomics (I was laughing outloud reading this one) and just started a whole collection of his novels and short stories that I bought in Milan. Plan B by Ann Lemott was a nice surprise, such honest writing. Winter Sleep by Kenzo Kitakata as much as it sounded interesting was a bit of a let down. It’s first book I read from this author and I am not sure wether it’s because of the translation or not, but it was hard to get through. I also re-read part of Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Murakami and was reminded of how humorous and great the writing is in that book. And … that was about it for my summer reading. Sure wish I could have as much time for books in the rest of the year. What are you reading? Any book you want to recommend?
