Reviews: The Earlies, Part 11

Try by Dennis Cooper

Pleasureably shocking.

On the Road by Jack Kerouac

I found this book incredibly self-centered and over-rated. Hate mail, come and get me.

The Road by Cormac McCarthy

Very good, disturbing book about a possible post-apocolyptic future. Unique style – the blunt simpleness of it matches perfectly with the world about which McCarthy writes.

Blankets by Craig Thompson

Wonderful graphic novel. Probably the only graphic novel I’ll ever read all the way through – and possibly again.

Seventh Son (Tales of Alvin Maker, Book 1) by Orson Scott Card

Such a great sci-fi/fantasy book. Takes place in early-American history. A young boy and ‘seventh son’ is born with special powers. Beginning of the ‘Alvin Maker’ series. Very entertaining.

Naked Lunch by William S. Burroughs

Insanely disgusting. Shocking for the sake of shock.. but maybe that’s why it’s worth reading.

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

Great!

The Book of Story Beginnings by Kristin Kladstrup

Interesting plot but not very well affected. Probably better for younger readers.

You don’t start out writing good stuff. You start out writing crap and thinking it’s good stuff, and then gradually you get better at it. That’s why I say one of the most valuable traits is persistence. Octavia E. Butler
