I, Claudius

I, Claudius - Robert Graves Excellent immersive writing


Disgrace - J.M. Coetzee Very strong writing, but the plot and themes do not connect with me. Another book by a middle aged man about a middle aged man and his sexual desires. Feels a bit thin in its metaphors/analogies. Sometimes reads as frustrating non-committal to the themes it's raising.


Laika - Nick Abadzis really hits home at the end in a powerful way. Much more poignant and touching than I imagined.


Steppenwolf - Basil Creighton, Hermann Hesse the final third was powerful and revelatory.

Brave New World

Brave New World - Aldous Huxley powerful ending.

4/5 stars

Breakfast at Tiffany's and Three Stories

Breakfast at Tiffany's and Three Stories - Truman Capote The character of Holly Golightly is the most intriguing thing about this book.

Stone Butch Blues

Stone Butch Blues - Leslie Feinberg A deep, thoughtfully written novel, well-crafted and intriguing, with beautiful imagery that tells a brutally ugly story.

Hell's Angels

Hell's Angels - Hunter S. Thompson Only saw one occasion where it said Hell's Angles.

The Damned, Vol. 1: Three Days Dead

The Damned, Vol. 1: Three Days Dead - Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt Beautifully drawn, good pacing, a little brief.

American Psycho

American Psycho - Bret Easton Ellis Really kicked into a higher gear approximately two thirds of the way through

Lies, Inc.

Lies, Inc. - Philip K. Dick The writing was decent enough.
It was too confused on what it was trying to achieve.
The plot was confusing and more than once I had no idea what was going on.


Watchmen - Dave Gibbons, John Higgins, Alan Moore One of the best things I have ever read. The complexity of the characters astounded me.
