Books Read in 2010

I have to admit House of Leaves was quite difficult at times, but that's mainly due to its original/unusual structure... which, of course, doesn't make it any less enjoyable; I definitely recommend it. :)

My (current) favourites are Under the Net by Iris Murdoch (a sort of philosophical/picaresque novel), A Void by Georges Perec and White Noise by Don DeLillo.

(Sorry I haven't replied earlier, for some reason I haven't visited this site in ages :/)

I thinks so - personally, I knew the ending, but I was still able to enjoy the book (more or less)... Of course, it's difficult to say whether I would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't knew it... I don't think the ending comes as much of a surprise anyway :P.

(sorry for the late reply - I haven't been around here for quite a while :D)

Yes - I, unfortunately, do live in Belgrade.

May I ask why are you asking? :D

I adore Huxley too :). I'm currently trying to read as many of his works as possible - so far, I've only read six books. Which one is your favourite?

I agree, The Pigeon was kind of weird, plus, most of the time I was under the impression I was somehow missing something, missing some point... like there was something I completely failed to understand. On the other hand, I really like the detailed descriptions of the mental states (or whatever is the correct expression :p) through which the main character is going through. Odd, but still somewhat amusing.

Of course, I reeeally like the Perfume - it definitely has to be one of the most unusual and unique books I've ever read. I love the whole idea, very original; and I especially liked the ending - it had completely caught me by surprise. (though, I have to say I think I would enjoy it at least somewhat more if the translation had been better... not that it was actually bad, just a bit awkward at times... I wish I could have read it in original)

I have to admit I did have some difficulties getting into it in the beginning, but I actually quite enjoyed it for the most part... not sure what it is exactly that I liked so much - I suppose I'm just a huge fan of Woolf's style, she has such an amazing way with words... :D

I would definitely recommend it. It was rather enjoyable, plus I really liked the style... though, I have to admit that some parts were, perhaps, a bit too slow for my taste, but it was still veeery amusing. :D

What's your opinion about Echoes from the Macabre by Daphne Du Maurier? I've only read Rebecca so far (which I extremely enjoyed, despite my expectations) and I've been trying to find more of her works ever since... without any luck so far, though.

I rather agree with your rating of Kafka's short stories, though I've read only a few so far... he has such unique ideas and the way of expressing them.

I have to say I've been kind of skeptical about starting to read American Psycho... what did you particularly dislike/like about it?

Yup, I quite enjoyed it; I didn't think I would like it so much, actually. It's rather adorable, and I really liked the style... very amusing.

What about you - did you like it?

I agree - I actually finished reading it some 5-6 days ago. I have to admit that I was awfully skeptical at first - I was actually quite convinced it was overrated, but having read it, I most definitely agree.
