The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery
The Elegance of the Hedgehog

David Siller, January 1, 2013

It is laugh-out-loud funny, moving, haunting and captivating. The prose is delicious, and you'll wish you knew the characters in real life.

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

David Siller, January 2, 2010

I took this book to France, expecting I'd casually work through it during my two-week stay. I finished it in the first 2 or 3 days--at turns mesmerizing, thought-provoking, even inspiring, this is one of Murakami's best. It is a must-have for your bookshelf, and a must-read if you even remotely like books.

The story of Toru, who loses his job, his cat and wife, weaves together the lives of a wild cast of characters, including a politician, psychic sisters, a crazy teen and an old soldier, as Toru searches for his cat and his wife. It is a magical and wondrous read that will constantly surprise you.
