The Killer Inside Me | Jim Thompson

Pickpick

This is a light pick in that I think it was good for what it was, but I don‘t personally enjoy being in the thoughts of a serial killer. It actually wasn‘t quite as gory as I was expecting, but it was disturbing in the way he plotted and had basically no remorse for his actions. As I‘ve been reading Ulysses with such varied text structure, this quote did catch my attention & make me chuckle.

Hemingway gives a master class in cutting the narrative to the bone while still maintaining a cohesive story.

I didn‘t like any of the characters and the narrative technique kept me emotionally distanced from the stir but still that ending 😱

Deep River | Shusaku Endo

This book by Shusaku Endo did not impact me as strongly as his book Silence, but it was a very thoughtful book. It considers spiritual questions through the stories of four Japanese tourists visiting the Ganges River in India.

Well this great American novel is probably great if you love baseball sadly not being American or interested in sport I found a lot of it deathly boring.

The backwards/forwards narrative technique is what saved this book for me.

I made it to today‘s years old before I read this American classic.

A sweet story about 4 sisters which does get a bit preachy and saccharine at points but that didn‘t detract much from my enjoyment.

Jo was definitely the highlight of this book although Laurie has his moments.
