The Perks Of Being A Wallflower 8/10

Read it in the space of a few hours, dunno, not as cheery as the movie trailer made it out to be which is a terrible reason to read a book anyway I guess.

Kennan: An American Life

This is a single volume biography of 700 pages, focusing on the life of American diplomat, Ambassador, scholar, philosopher, historian and the man that is credited with the concept of "containment" as a plausible strategy during the Cold War: George F. Kennan. He lived from 1904-2005, a long life full of many stories and his life story serves as a wonderful companion to follow along with western history during the 20th century from a time before automobiles and WWI through a post 9/11 world. For those interested in politics, history, or even personal philosophy this is a wonderful read.

Korea: The Impossible Country

Opens with a compact 20 page history of Korea but the entire book is about South Korea from 1945-the present with a focus on its contemporary culture. Religion, food, education, entertainment, social norms and a ton of other tenets of the society are covered and it's an awesome read to broaden your horizons and knowledge of a foreign and not-so-widely discussed culture.

Just when you think things are wrapping up, he swerves. It was originally meant to be a trilogy but he keeps writing and writing.

They take real commitment though.

Man's Search For Meaning by Victor Frankl

Very interesting book from a holocaust survivor / psychiatrist. Basically an existential look at how to find meaning in life when everything you've had has been stripped away. Definitely a suggested read.

A good friend hooked me up with an Amazon giftcard for X-mas. I had been wanting this collection of Peter Bagge's Batboy comic from the late great Weekly World News. Found a used copy super cheap. This hardcover reprints the 2 years when Bagge was writing and drawing the strip. Great stuff.

Final Fantasy: The Sky

Okay, so I didn't read it since there are almost no words. It's an art book dedicated to Yoshitakia Amano's work from FF 1-10. As a kid I hated Amano's art and it even deterred me from playing Final Fantasy 6.(Though my first RPG experience with Dragon Warrior was the main problem) But over the years his art grew on me til I finally "got it".

This set is actually three books, each pertaining to a group of FF games, all together in a gorgeous box. It's not a series retrospective like the Capcom Complete works series. There is no commentary at all. It is a pure art book.

I've seen a lot of amano's art over the years, but this had lodes of stuff I had never seen. It has everything from two page spreads to art for all the monsters. The dark tower gaurdians from FF 3 were particularly cool. The book that contains FF 7-10 is much smaller than the others, as Amano was no longer the head designer. FF 9 actually gets the biggest page count in that book. Interesting though, that Red XIII seemingly may have had a bigger role in the initial stages of FF VIII, as Cloud's pet/companion.

Anyway this is an amazing set, and at 60 bucks, I felt like it was a great deal given the quality.

10/10

Jack Ketchum's-Weed Species

This was originally a very limited print run chapbook. That was later reprinted as part of a mass market paperback. Based on that couple in Canada that were going around kidnapping then raping and killing teenage girls. It takes a lot to turn my stomach and this under 80 page story did that 4 times.

A Game of Thrones

Pretty great stuff. For some reason I was expecting really difficult to read, intricately detailed chapters like Tolkien, but it read more like adult Rowling to me (with more sex and violence than the Harry Potter series, obviously). The whole thing was kind of ruined for me though since I've watched the show. Clash of Kings next.

Approaching Oblivion by Harlan Ellison-8 out of 10

Love Ellison's short fiction and this collection is well done. Plus it was only 50 cents.

Cool novel about this guy who dies and then awakens as himself like 25 years earlier, relives his life and makes a bunch of money via betting and stuff, dies again at the same time and keeps reliving his life, cool

Star Wars: The Courtship of Princess Leia:

Now that it doesn't matter anymore, I have decided to see what I have missed out on in the Star Wars EU for the past 20 years. I rate this book 7.5/10. Think it had a weak beginning and a weak ending, but the middle part was pretty rad.

Failures of the Presidents: 6.5/10

An interesting book focusing on the failures of various presidents including 5 of the first 10, Franklin Pierce, Herbert Hoover, JFK, FDR, LBJ, Carter and Dubbya. Problems include bias' of the authors which are apparent with various statements of opinion presented as fact and a fair amount of editorializing. Most of these things are covered in various history courses in high scho and freshman college courses so there might only be a limited amount of new information for hardcore history buff readers.

I've been reading the works of this Swiss writer Robert Walser. I really like his stuff -unique, neurotic, modernist prose. He was this outsider who was once really popular and guys like Musil and Kafka liked his stuff, but he slipped into obscurity, had a nervous breakdown and ended up in an asylum. He would go on long walks, and died during one of these walks and someone took a picture.

Peter & Max by Bill Willingham

7/10. Based in the same universe(s) as his Fables comic book series. Was alright. Read like a children's book/fairy tale. Drawback of that is that it just felt like it didn't have enough depth for a novel. Still enjoyable, but as a novel, would have been cool to have more details. Would go through years in a character's life in two sentences...

Just finishing up The Dark Half by Stephen King. It might be the first book of his I've found underwhelming and disappointing. It definitely could have used a nip and tuck, there's about 10 pages of one character just stood at a sink dressing a wound.

Up next is The Lost World by Michael Crichton.

Apocalypse Watch - 3/10 The worst Ludlum novel I've ever read.

The Chancellor Manuscript - 9/10 The best Ludlum novel I've read.

3 books (fuck the titles) by Alex Kava - 5/10 Why do I even bother with modern crime novels by women. Well, at least she doesn't spend half the book describing outfits like Kathy Reichs.

Inner Demons by Brian Coll - 10/10.

Author is a buddy of mine from college, which is the entire reason I got the book. I ended up really enjoying it, though. Great character development, plenty of gore, imagery is awesome (plus I'm mentioned a few times - famous NPC right here).
