Things I Like

Amazing book

I liked this book from the beginning, but became convinced of the wonderful writing at the end of the first chapter. I was reading it on the crowded M60 bus to LaGuardia, and there, surrounded by people, I started crying. That is not too remarkable in and of itself, although not many books have made me cry. What is amazing is what I was crying over – the death of a fictional hamster. If I can be moved to tears for the demise of a non-existent creature, something powerful is at work.

I just finished the book last night, and it is amazing through and through. I highly recommend it to any and all. Just be wary of reading it on public transportation. My tears for the hamster were nothing compared to the full-blown crying I did on the subway while reading the end yesterday. All the more reason to read it though!
