talk that he's the favorite for this years Nobel Prize in Literature. I wanted to read a book that reflected what he is best known for, surrealism. So after a little research, I chose Hard-Boiled Wonderland and The End of The World.
Hard-Boiled Wonderland and The End of The World is written as two parallel narratives (Hard-Boiled Wonderland) and (The End of the World). Hard-Boiled Wonderland is narrated by a split brained data processor who faces the end of the world. The End of The World is narrated by an outsider who is adapting to a new town that is surrounded by a large wall. In this new town he's given the job of "dream reader".
I'm about two-thirds through this book and have been really enjoying it.
Have any of you read this book? Did you like it?
Comet in Moominland introduces you to the Moomin family. In this book you follow the adventures of Moomintroll and his friend Sniff. I just started reading this to my children (ages 7 & 10) and they both seem to like it.
So that's what I'm reading. How about you? Any recommendations for me or the kids?
