Books - November 2007

The Girls by Lori Lansens
A memoir-style novel about a pair of conjoined twins. Proves that an interesting premise doesn't always mean the story will be any good.

Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier
My friends who read this romantic yarn about a Confederate deserter's journey back home didn't like it, but they read it when it was at the height of its hype. My advice: wait to read books when they've gone out of fashion and you have no expectations. I loved Frazier's writing, and the story is a good one.

Fargo Rock City by Chuck Klosterman
My reading pleasure was enhanced by being almost exactly the same age and from the same kind of town as the author of this book. Also, it helped that I still listen to Def Leppard.
