I put the full title here because it is amazing. My friend Gabrielle recommended this one. She is a librarian. We were having this whole discussion about feminism, history, and diversity and she mentioned this book. Always read the books that Gabrielle recommends.
Gabrielle again. I have a fascination with the former USSR and she ordered this book special for me when she saw it. This is how I know that we are friends for life. It is the story of one day in a boys life where he starts to question the world around him.
Amazon recommended this to me. I don't know what I had bought that would have lead them to think that I would like this book. I bought a kindle copy of this right before I was flying from Mongolia to the States for Christmas and I finished it somewhere over the Pacific. By the time I got to the US I was so desperate for someone to talk about this book with that I went to Target on December 23 just to buy a hardcopy for my mother. Which I forced on her that same day. I didn't even pretend that it was a Christmas present. Beware: this book is graphic beyond all reason.
Amazon. I think I got this on my kindle the day it came out and was completely oblivious to the hype around it until the first movie came out. I was young and sheltered then. Also, if I remember correctly I had no internet connection at home and was living in the bush of Alaska.
My husband nagged me for literally years to years this book. I don't even know how to describe it. Math and computer science but entertaining? I am still impressed that he read it in his second language.
This list has made me realize how closely I associate books with where I was when I was reading them. Does anyone else do that?
