Gelesen Mai 2016

29. Sam Roskoe, Beneath a Bloodshot Moon (Average crime novel with private eye and his dog.)
28. Maggie Stiefvater, The Raven King (The final volume of the Raven Cycle brings all things to an end. Kind of.)
27. Herman Melville, Bartleby, the Scrivener (I've wanted to read this for a long time and when a friend told me he read it and found it great, I finally grabbed this one and read it. ... Bartleby would probably say: I prefer not to write about it.)
26. Olivia E. Butler, Kindred (Although it's a time travel story, it's more about how slavery works on people. A black woman from 1976 suddenly found herself in Maryland on a slave farm, where one of her ancestors will be born.The struggles between here modern ego and the historic times, the mindfuck that violent setups do to people, pure survival instincts versus rational, "modern" thinking - all this mixed up in the main character. Too make things even more complicated she's married to a white man in present time. And her husband also stranded in the past once, finding himself in a role that he never asked for ... I definitely want to read more from Butler.)
25. Stephen Baxter, Flood (The water level on earth is rising. And rising. And rising. After three decades all land is gone. From the first denials of the problem up to the end when some old people watch the last hill top finally drown, while there raft born grand-children don't see what the fuzz is about, Baxter follows some main characters that are bound together by sharing a past as long-time hostages of a radical group. This doesn't make too much sense and the characters are not very interesting, but the whole story is worth reading it.)
