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.

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
