Books I’m Reading/ Books on the To-Read Pile

10 Nov

Currently Reading:

Vineland by Thomas Pynchon
This one is taking me a while. The back cover of my copy promises that it’s a mash-up of a literary novel, a ninja thriller, and a soap opera. Which it is.


Sandman: The Wake
by Neil Gaiman, Michael Zulli, John J Muth, Dave McKean, et al.

This is the last book of the Sandman series (I don’t count the Endless Dreams book, which I see as the Reunion/Farewell-Tour-type-of-book). After I finish this, I’m pretty sure that I’ll have read all of them. This one is okay, but it’s a lot closer to just being a mediocre fantasy series, which is what a lot of people, unfortunately, perceive Sandman to be. My favorite Sandman stories have a dose of reality to combine with the fantasy, but so far, this one doesn’t. It’s still really good, but for one thing, it’s weird to see the characters from all the previous books come and hang out at the same time in The Dreaming. Of course, If I sat down and read this after reading the other 9 books in a row, this would probably have a lot more emotional resonance.
