Anthony Burgess is my favorite author, and this is my favorite novel of his (that I have read so far). It is a mysterious, interesting story told from a great point of view. This book will suck you in and keep you thinking long after you have finished.

This is a very well written story of travel in Ireland. The author is on a quest to find his identity in the homeland of his ancestors.

The Ridiculous Race by Steve Hely and Vali Chandrasekaran
The Ridiculous Race

hoskinso, January 20, 2009

This hilarious book tells the adventures of two young guys during an around-the-world race.

They are both writers for comedy television shows, and their joke telling talents are obvious throughout the story. Their humor does a great job of complementing the events during the book, and makes up for any slow parts.
