A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole
A Confederacy of Dunces

bere w, November 1, 2007

a jewel of American literature. This book is so good that while reading it, I thought, maybe this is the reason of my life, being alive to be able to read this piece of art. It is clever, hilarious, and Ignatius conveys all aspects of human kind. If I would have to chose just 1 book to re-read for the rest of my life, this would be the one!

The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst
The Line of Beauty

bere w, November 1, 2007

Hollinghurst's writing is flawless!
Even though the thematic of the book was so appealing to me (too much drug use, gay sex, and 80's Tatcher government issues...) I have no regrets of reading this book, on the contrary, no wonder Hollinghurst won a Booker prize for this book. Excellent read!
