Books that I enjoyed this year 2003

"rosycheeks245"
 
The Fuck-up
The Fuck-up
"a man's life brought down by unfortunate events, or maybe a case of bad karma?Is it wrong to laugh at th misery of others?"
To Kill A Mockingbird
To Kill A Mockingbird
"materly crafted, the deep south and all of its excentricites on show in a tale of youth"
We are Still Married
We are Still Married
"quaint selection of short stories and poetry, mild mannered but satisfying"
The Master and Margarita
The Master and Margarita
"The devil makes an appearance in Moscow. fierce political satire with dazzling surreal humour. brillant slapstick"
Grey Area and Other Stories
Grey Area and Other Stories
"macabre set pieces written with comic finesse."
Babel Tower
Babel Tower
Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir
Prozac Nation: Young and Depressed in America - A Memoir
"a huge slice of the depression of a american teenager, be careful you don't fall in your self when reading. On the other hand you may find yourself overjoyed that you can get out of bed in the morning"
Love in the Time of Cholera
Love in the Time of Cholera
"beautifully written, charting one man's unrequited love over 60's years in the Carribean, although he still manages to consume that time with many others."
The Count of Monte Cristo (Wordsworth Classics)
The Count of Monte Cristo (Wordsworth Classics)
"Door stop of a book. so many different aspects of this  fantastical character are shown it becomes totally enveloping"
The God of Small Things
The God of Small Things
Aberystwyth Mon Amour
Aberystwyth Mon Amour
"Not to be a taken as a travel guide for Wales. Gloriously funny and scabrous satire."
White Teeth
White Teeth
"The tv series totally destroyed the essential humour of this take on multicultural london throughout the decades. Everybody has a story to tell, or so they say, but if they all are evidently linked..."
Lucky Jim
Lucky Jim
"hard not to be absorbed into the life of the pitiful main character, with nice backdrop of Oxford life"
Under Milk Wood: Dylan Thomas & the Original Cast
Under Milk Wood: Dylan Thomas & the Original Cast
"more Wales sorry, but the side of the surreal and the ridiculous. so beautifully rhymical, should be made into an opera"
Girl With a Pearl Earring
Girl With a Pearl Earring
"a chance to view inside the canvas, and the mindset of the painter Vermeer."
The Cold Six Thousand
The Cold Six Thousand
"Not as celebrated as LA Confidential, but more sleeze, corruption and murder. Bizarrely tied in with major historical events of mid 20th century"
Angela's Ashes
Angela's Ashes
"dark, gloomy, with mildew soaked sheets. a story revolving around the childhood of the writer in a very wet Ireland. heart-breaking hardship"
