The Woman in the Dunes by Kobo Abe
The Woman in the Dunes

Lainie, September 26, 2006

Like a bad dream any imagination can identify with, Abe's story is at once beautiful and terrifying. Feeling trapped has never had this spin. Read this book with a glass of cold water nearby.

The Same Sea by Amos Oz
The Same Sea

Lainie, September 26, 2006

The Same Sea is novel about family, loneliness, love, and Israel. Amos Oz writes a gripping, flowing story in mesmerizing prose. An unbelievably beautiful novel, in an unusual, poetic style all it's own. The tone of the novel permeates, the setting of the story eminates. Anyone can read this book, everyone should.
