[Review] Orhan Pamuk – A Strangeness in My Mind

"A Strangeness in My Mind" is not the type of literature that I usually read. The book was recommended to me some time ago by another bookworm and I decided to give it a try. To be perfectly honest, in my ignorance I didn't realize that the author is a winner of the Nobel prize… Continue reading [Review] Orhan Pamuk – A Strangeness in My Mind

Bloodshed – [Review] Sky Key by James Frey

I was struggling to write this review. After reading "Sky Key" by James Frey I really wanted to find more words in my mind that would describe the book in a better light, but it's been few days and I cannot find any more words. The paperback copy of "Sky Key" that I could find… Continue reading Bloodshed – [Review] Sky Key by James Frey

Part of the reason why I never gave… Continue reading The book I was not going to write about – “The Good Good Pig” by Sy Montgomery (plus a surprise!)

Drugs and rock’n’roll

This week I decided to dive into another non-fiction book. This time it was the autobiography of Duff McKagan, titled "It's so easy (and other lies)". Duff has a story to tell. And what a story it is. Duff's autobiography is a great summary of what the rock'n'roll world is all about. He takes us… Continue reading Drugs and rock’n’roll

Equals in space

My most recent read was "The Long Mars" written jointly by Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter and first published in 2014. This is a third book in The Long Earth series, but aside from one or two details, it is very easy to follow the story and it can definitely be read as a stand-alone… Continue reading Equals in space
