A Mango-Shaped Space by Wendy Mass
A Mango-Shaped Space

Davey929, December 27, 2009

A good, quick read, this book introduced me to a new disorder that I had never heard of--synesthesia. Descriptively rendered and fascinating, as well as accessible to younger readers, this book is a good portrait of a girl with an unusual condition trying to find her place in the world when she is very different.

The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand
The Fountainhead

Davey929, December 27, 2009

A long but worthwhile read. It's been misunderstood over the years, but I've loved 'The Fountainhead' for its celebration of creation, artistry, individual thinking, and the power of the ego. The philosophies in this book changed my life. It's much less daunting than 'Atlas Shrugged,' Ayn Rand's other novel, and you will never forget Howard Roark.

The Arrival by Shaun Tan
The Arrival

Davey929, December 27, 2009

I found ‘The Arrival’ in the children's section of Powell's, but it is far more than a picture book. It is a graphic novel that needs no words to tell the story. The pictures are beautifully done, depicting a bizarre, lovely, and terrifying world. The story of alienation and immigration to a strange new place appeals to anyone who has felt they didn't quite fit in to another culture.

The Sandman, Volume 7: Brief Lives by Neil Gaiman
The Sandman, Volume 7: Brief Lives

Davey929, July 7, 2009

The art, the ideas, the emotion...this is my favorite Sandman, though I admit to loving the others as well. Delirium is a delight to observe, and her ramblings never grow old to me. I wish I had the money to buy the whole collection, but I'd choose this one over any of the others if I had to.

Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings by Christopher Moore
Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings

Davey929, August 26, 2008

You have to let this book grow on you. At times it gets so strange and weird that you feel like you should just give up, put it down, and get a normal book, but it is completely worth it.
