Welcome to another Monday Potpourri, with today’s feature being Musing Mondays, by Should Be Reading.
This week’s musing — courtesy of http://lustforstories.blogspot.com– asks…
What is the weirdest/strangest/craziest book you’ve read?
I thought of a few possibilities, but here’s one I came up with after perusing my lists:
Digging Out, by Anne Richardson (Roiphe) (click title for review)
I entitled my review “A Savage Exploration,” because the images that came to mind as I read were “savage”and “cold.” And I could even imagine a kind of “emotional excavation.” I have enjoyed several books by this author, but was so disappointed by this 1966 tome, that I couldn’t wait to finish it.
In probing my other weird experiences with books, I think of another one that felt really strange to me: A Visit from the Goon Squad, by Jennifer Egan. I know lots of people enjoyed this one, and I liked parts of it. I especially didn’t like the Power Point chapter.
I couldn’t find a link to my review, which means I probably read and reviewed it before I was tracking my reviews. One of the downsides to having lots of blogs!
What about the rest of you? What did you come up with?
