Once again, books that came highly recommended, but didn’t even come close to living up to their billing. Thanks to Luisa for reminding me of the new addition: Possession by A. S. Byatt.
In no particular order:
- Prodigal Summer – Barbara Kingsolver
- Possession – A. S. Byatt
- A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius – Dave Eggers
- The God of Small Things – Arundhati Roy
By the way, I’m in the middle of two books at the moment: Sacred Games by Vikram Chandra and Time’s Arrow by Martin Amis. Sacred Games promises to be very good, but it’s also pretty long. Check out my blogroll if you need a blog fix while I do my reading.
