You can't fake creativity, competence, or sexual arousal.
Moshi Monsters. The kitchen bench, Geilston Bay. August 2013.
The Housekeeper and the Professor, Yōko Ogawa: A Japanese novel that intersperses memory with pure mathmatics. I really liked it. B+.
World War Z, Max Brooks: The retelling of the Zombie War as written by the son of Mel Brooks. It was better than the movie sounds. C+.
Out Stealing Horses, Per Petterson: A bittersweet Norweigen bit of nostalgia. The central narrator, at the end of his life, removes himself out to the country and dwells on his memories. It's a restrained but powerful book. I loved it. A+.
