A tough read. I've been gnawing at it for months now.

I don't know if she wrote all her other books the same way but the way she keeps coming around and regurgitating the same points over and over should make her yarn seem repetitive but instead we find her introducing insightful facets of the same subject with each spin. Wonder if her New Yorker stuff reads the same way.

Still in "Labour".

Don't have much time for books currently (posting on MTF takes my whole time), but I'm contemplating starting The Origins of Totalitarianism or Bloodlands by Snyder.

Presumed Innocent by Scott Turow. Bit slow to start but building up tension nicely. If you're looking for a great legal thriller this is it.

Only took me 3 months to finish that last book. Now on Reliquery by Preston & Child.

Adorno and Horkheimer ^_^

It has been a while, but I'm slowly (re)reading the more interesting books from my student days. "Dialectic of Enlightenment" is more meaningful to me now than it was to my 20 year old self.

The Glass Bead Game by Hermann Hesse.

I think Hesse deliberately wrote the novel in this way as some ironic criticism of historical biographers resorting to clichés and hero-worship to fill in the blanks while reconstructing a historical figure's life.
Anyway, it lacks subtlety and gets quite tedious after the first 100 odd pages or so. Also fails to even mention the rules of this Game.
