#606: The Heat of the Day
There’s the basis for a thriller here,
but there are absolutely no thrills to be had.
#607: Inside Mr Enderby
... a character whose most memorable feature is farting.
#608: Invisible Cities
... left me feeling like I should have
somehow done more than simply just read it.
#610: The Professor's House
... most notable for its unusual structure.
#612: The Sound and the Fury
... I was very lost and confused a lot of the time ...
#613: Amongst Women
... subtle and measured and,
if you let it get to you, moving
... an excuse for her unabashed attempt to be clever.
#615: Moon Palace
... like fast food: easy to digest but failing to nourish.
#616: No one Writes to the Colonel
... an elegant poise that is perfectly measured.
#617: The Circle
Eggers has taken a great premise and executed it clumsily.
#618: Baltasar and Blimunda
... a lovely mixture of historical fiction and magic realism.
... every minor character takes turns
coming in and going out the hovel's only door.
