Bliss by Peter Carey

Avital, August 22, 2012

Peter Carey tells you how people look, think and feel-each of these in total disharmony with the rest of it and with other people, how each trait and person keeps changing and is completely unreliable, and he even goes to the incestuous, and yet he tells you about the most common feelings of people regarding themselves and others. Some descriptions of the mindwork and of perceptions take my breath away with their accuracy.
Finished it, and now I want more peter Carey!

Pacazo by Roy Kesey

Avital, August 4, 2012

Pacazo is an ambitious book that conveys the historical movement of our times but never fails to move the reader with the delicacy of love between father and daughter and husband to dead wife. It explores an obsession for finding the truth, in the hope for some relief, but the truth is potentially dangerous since the relief is conditioned with revenge. Here and there there are moments of lightness, well woven into the beautiful prose.

Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood
Alias Grace

Avital, February 5, 2007

Alias Grace is one of the best books I read last year. But of course, Margaret Atwood Never lets you down...She weaves a facinating story based on a true one about a young woman who might have been a Machiavelic murderess or a victim of circumstances. The story involves you as soon as it begins, and you never wish the book to end.

Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
Kafka on the Shore

Avital, February 5, 2007

A motherless fifteen-year old boy and an old man who only casts half a shadow and speaks with cats go on essential trips in the material and in the metaphysical world. Haruki Murakami makes them so flawed and lovable they become real and you care about them so much you take the trip with them and never look back.

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank
The Diary of a Young Girl

Avital, January 1, 2007

This is a book I read when I was 16 and now I'm passing it on to my daughter who is 16. I read it again now and noticed how the world has changed with time and how this book still grasps your heart as you get much older than Anne Frank.
