Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

jzboin, May 12, 2014

What an amazing read, this book was! I read it in only four days, which for me is getting through a book very quickly. First of all, the main character is immediately likable. The villains are very engaging, too. The story follows Richard, who appears to have it all figured out before he falls into London below, which he must escape in order to get back to his own world. There is an angel, there are rat people, and so much more for the fantasy novel readers out there. For the not necessarily fantasy readers there are great characters and there is a lot of heart. This was my first Neil Gaiman book, I now plan to read all the others, excuse me...

This was one of the most beautifully imaginative books I have ever read. This magnificently written story actually makes you care about it's characters. It will simply amaze you.

A Streetcar Named Desire by Tennessee Williams
A Streetcar Named Desire

jzboin, July 12, 2009

Characters from "A Streetcar Named Desire" seem discontented to be who they are and to be in the company of others. Still, with every character combined, it is quite an exhilarating read. I would recommend this book to anyone who does not expect it to cheer them up on gloomy days.
