The Yellow Birds

The kind of book you can recommend to anyone without worrying about what they would think.  A cool trip into the Amazon, with a real and likeable protagonist makes this a worthwhile read.  If you're looking for a good read, grab this one...

Read Ann Patchett's State of Wonder! She is one of my favorite authors and this is a masterful story that evokes Conrad's Heart of Darkness.

I'm just sad that I've read all of his novels.  Number 9 Dream was a little difficult to access, but after about 75 pages, I entered the dream and glommed on to the main character.

Accordion Crimes E. Annie Proulx

Accordion Crimes by Annie Proulx. Interesting read, but lacks the rapor an actual accordionist would have if they were to write about them.

Men from the boys.    I loved Man and Boy, I liked Parsons subsequent offerings, and didn't dislike this instalment.  There are some genuinely touching moments, but I do wish protagonist Harry would have learned a bit more than he has...still, not a bad read.

IRON SHOES: A Novel  I cared about the characters, and that's enough for me.  A fairly straightforward story about a woman stumbling towards freedom, realizing that it was hers to take all along.

Brought me into a time and place I've never been...South Africa in the midst of civil unrest. Galgut captures a distinct feeling and mood throughout this novella...the loneliness of a young man coming of age in difficult times. Worth the read.
