1984 (Signet Classics) by George Orwell
1984 (Signet Classics)

Margareto, September 27, 2010

This is Part two of my personal End Of The World trilogy (Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, 1984, Ayn Rand's Anthem). I first read this book in middle school and I have not been able to enjoy modern technological conveniences since. ATMs, debit cards, surveillance systems, "nanny-cams", all of it. It terrifies me to see us coming to this.

American Gods by Neil Gaiman
American Gods

This is a book I’ll have to try to read again. Maybe I just couldn’t get that into it. The ideas were interesting and Neil Gaiman is a great story teller. Well, now I want to go read it again because I’m sure it’s better than I gave it credit for.

The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America by Erik Larson
The Devil in the White City: Murder, Magic, and Madness at the Fair That Changed America

Margareto, September 26, 2010

Kind of a story about a crazy serial killer who was operating in Chicago during the World’s Fair in 1893, I think. The best parts in the whole book concerned trying to organize all of the diverse aspects to create the most amazing fair in the world.

The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett
The Wee Free Men

Margareto, September 3, 2010

Wonderful book! This book is what you would get if Labyrinth (the David Bowie movie) had a baby with Fried Green Tomatoes then gave it to Tolkien to raise. I can’t wait to read the next one.
