Reading 2009

The Black Dahlia - James Ellroy (Quite ridiculous)

London Fields - Martin Amis (Started off well, became disappointing)

Less than Zero - Bret Easton Ellis (I've read this before of course. Awesome)

On the Road - Jack Kerouac (Nice scenery)

Dune - Frank Herbert (A re-read)

Surfacing - Margaret Atwood (Early so OTT feminism ahoy)

Half a Yellow Sun - Chimamanda Adichie (Enjoyed this a lot!)

Engleby - Sebastian Faulks (Flawed but enjoyable. Lost momentum towards the end)

On Writing - Stephen King (Really interesting. Like peering into someone's window through binoculars)

The Shining - Stephen King (Another teenage read)

Behind the Scenes at the Museum - Kate Atkinson (Found the narrator a bit grating! Too many! Exclamations!!!)

Fury - Salman Rushdie (Didn't vibe with this)

Rant - Chuck Palahniuk (My new favourite author)
