Top 100 Books update

I'm now up to 32 books read. Refer to this previous article if you are not sure what I'm talking about.

These are the latest read:

  • As I Lay Dying — William Faulkner. This will either change or confirm your in-built views of back-country Americans. I liked this one very much.

  • Dune — Frank Herbert. I think this is about the fourth time I have read this one. A favourite.

  • Neuromancer — William Gibson. I find his narrative confusing in spots; probably a personal problem.

  • Scoop — Evelyn Waugh. Usually, it takes me a little while to get into a book and then I'm hooked. This was different. I initially thought it hilarious, I cooled on it in the middle, and got back to it in the end.

  • Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy — John le Carre. OK.

  • Wind in the Willows, The — Kenneth Grahame. Very English countryside kids story. I'm sure I have read this before, possibly?

And I'm still reading Moby Dick via Daily Lit. Page 100 of 252. Struth! I'll get there in the end.
