Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahniuk
So, so good. Slow start, but bang finish.
The Awakening by Kate Chopin
Wonderful and beautiful. Yes yes.
Stardust by Neil Gaiman
Not that great. Certainly not the best fantasy book I have read – felt it was lacking in action and fantasy. The ‘bad guy’ was just not bad enough.
The Once and Future King by T.H. White
This book did not live up to its reputation, for me. Took me a long time to get through, possibly because the edition I read was less than perfect. Found most of the story dry, boring, and pointless. The first story, “The Sword in the Stone,” was fun and entertaining, but I could have stopped there, rather than continue on with the next 500 pages.
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
Not all I hoped it to be. But, then again, it is a children’s book.
God Bless You, Dr. Kevorkian by Kurt Vonnegut
So very funny. A wonderful commentary on the modern world – capitalism and interpersonal detachment.
>Invisible Monsters is in my top three favorite books. I love Palahniuk.
>Wow, you made your way all the way back here?! I didn't think (and was kind of hoping LOL) that anyone would get to these. Obviously, these are books that I had read before I started reviewing, so they are awful – but I still wanted to get them down for my own memory's sake. I will have to go back and re-review a lot of these books at some point.Invisible Monsters was really great – and I like Palahniuk a lot too. My favorite of his is probably Haunted but Invisible Monsters comes very close.
