This is a nice thread. Let's have a book edition.

I just read my first book by Haruki Murakami, "The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle". Murakami gets a lot of praise in these parts, and after reading this book, I can confirm that it isn't unfounded. The book to me felt a bit weaker towards the end, but I really liked hearing the stories of Nomonhan, Siberia, and such.

My Name is Red by Orhan Pamuk.

It's a murder mystery novel set in Istanbul in the 1500s, and every bit as bizarre as that sounds. I rather enjoyed it, despite the bits about sticking needles in people's eyes.

We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver.

It was horrible. Very well written and all, but the subject matter was just relentlessly miserable.

Dead Lucky: Life after death on Mount Everest by Lincoln Hall

I was promised that it was something of a typical mountaineering memoir crossed with a hypoxia-driven hallucination but this assessment is overblown. It's at least 95% lucid. Of these books, it's one of the better ones.

Lost in Moscow: A Brat in the USSR by Kirsten Koza

This is the true story of a Canadian, who in 1977 at the age of 11, went on a cultural exchange trip to the USSR with a group of other children from around the world. At the height of the Brezhnev stagnation, the shortages of food and basic consumer goods is apparent even to these kids, whose heavily-censored trip was meant to showcase the best the Soviet Union had to offer (its Party elite). Written in the frantic tone of a hyperactive child thrust into absurdities of a Soviet summer camp, I found it very funny. A weird find. Highly recommended.
