The Darkness of Wallis Simpson by Rose Tremain
Started reading this last night. Was hoping the LRT ride this morning would last longer than usual so I could find out what happens in the title story (the first short story in this compilation). I hope the rest of the stories are of the same quality as this one.
have recently finished
Aug 14, 2006: Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami
Brilliant and enjoyable collection of short stories. Proof that Murakami is indeed master of the surreal as well as the unreal.
Aug 2, 2006: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
Melancholic and nostalgic. Though written in simple language, the story is engaging till the end.
Jul 30, 2006: Roald Dahl and His Chocolate Factory by Andrew Donkin
Found this book lying around in my parents's house and gave it a read. Finished it in a few hours. It was okaaaaay. Some things I didn't know about Dahl were in the book, but I think those factoids could've have easily been found on the Internet if I had bothered to look.

- Advencer Si Peniup Ney by Faisal Tehrani
- His Majesty's Dragon by Naomi Novik

The Ode Less Travelled by Stephen Fry
Great book! Makes you want to write poetry right then and there. Which was hard for me as I was driving.
