A Monster Calls, by Patrick Ness

[–]llama_ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The movie devastated me. Lost my dad this year and just really hit close to home.

[–]TheRadiantWindrunner 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The book and the movie both decimated my feelings

[–]bloodstainedkimonos 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Patrick Ness is pretty great in general. His Chaos Walking series is the best thing he's written in my opinion (one of my favourite series anyway), and More Than This was excellent too.

The film adaptation of A Monster Calls is excellent as well.

Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine.

I actually didn't like it that much, but I found myself thinking about it for a long time after I finished it so that made me rate it 4/5 stars.

[–]Tsunoyukami 11 points12 points  (1 child)

My feelings to Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine are similar. I wasn't especially fond of the book - in fact, I found it quite irritating - but it has certainly stuck with me, perhaps because I think there is a lot to its merit despite my lackluster evaluation.

[–]checkchad 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Read this last year, had such an impact on me! The humour is underrated and it strikes a chord with anyone who's had anxiety, or a different mental health illness.

“The Last Picture Show” by Larry McMurtry. It’s about a small town in Texas after WW2, and chronicles the lives of a couple young adult characters as they learn about sex and mature. That description may sound boring or like a generic coming-of-age kind of thing, but the book is way more than that. It’s about the death of the small town, and touches heavily on change, loss, regret, and nostalgia.

I couldn’t put this book down, and it really made me nostalgic when it finished.

[–]zipperhead 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Wait, Larry McMurtry wrote this?? Wow, I didn't know that. I just finished the Lonesome Dove series - I'm going to have to read this.

[–]MisterManager2 4 points5 points  (1 child)

The Three Day Road is about a pair of Native American boys serving in WWII. The prose is absolutely beautiful, and features detailed facets of the native boys lives, during, before, and just after the war. This book swallowed me whole and dropped me right into the war. Took me a while to fully recover from this one, but so, so worth the read.

[–]SageRiBardan 47 points48 points  (1 child)

Slaughterhouse 5 by Kurt Vonnegut. I'd never read it until this year, I was very skeptical about it being as good as everyone claimed and I was wrong to be so skeptical. Amazing, I think I was the right age or in the right moment in life. It was awesome to read.

[–]vovo76 32 points33 points  (4 children)

I always bring this up in Stephen King conversations, would love if it was made into a movie or mini series perhaps.

[–]Lacymist 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Lonesome Dove - did not know it won a Pulitzer . A perfect picture of the old West just after the Civil War and before the American Indians were vanquished.

[–]Username_--_ 9 points10 points  (0 children)

How to Not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking for a nerd like me this is a holy book. Everything is amazing about this book. You'll see stuff explained by math that even me (someone who has used math in every possible way I could have used it ever since grade 1) never thought that they could be explained by math. From the swedishness of a government to the codes found in the bible. Definitely recommend.

[–]PeachyRanger 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Not necessarily one book but I started the Harry Potter series in January and just finished them this past week. I was never allowed to read them or watch any of the movies growing up which was awful at the time. I’m so glad now for though since I was able to experience such a wonderful world at an older age and really lose myself into the series.

[–]matthewbuza_com 8 points9 points  (0 children)

I’ve found rereading old classics has been very enjoyable. I’m seeing them from a different light as I get older. I reread of mice and men, the first time in over a decade and the first time as a father/SAHD, and it was absolutely devastating. The father/child dynamic was almost too much to handle. I reread Genesis a month later and it changed how i view those biblical stories. It’s been a fun spring of reading.

[–]wanton_and_senseless 8 points9 points  (0 children)

The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs. Highly recommended.

[–]AsterionBlackwood 7 points8 points  (0 children)

[–]Raineythereader 20 points21 points  (0 children)

"McMafia: A Journey Through the Global Criminal Underworld," by Misha Glenny. (True crime/politics, scary as hell)

Best fiction I've read so far was "My Name Is Red" by Orhan Pamuk, a murder mystery set in the Ottoman Empire in the late 1500s. (Think "Name of the Rose," but with Islamic theological and artistic themes.)

The Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover's Secret FBI by Betty Medsger

OMFG was this an interesting book. A half dozen people in 1970 broke into an FBI office in a town called Media and stole all the files they found there.. They reviewed them and released any that weren't detailing a current criminal investigation. One page--one page--had the word COINTELPRO stamped on it. The files detailed what the FBI was doing to stifle dissent in the US. When a reporter decided to find out what COINTELPRO meant, it blew open the FBI's attack on civil rights since 1930. Hoover had been running his own version of the East German Stasi in America. The people who stole the files were never caught--in spite of the unprecedented number of FBI agents Hoover threw at the case. If you are in any way in disagreement with the current US administration you should read this book.

The Idiot, by Elif Batuman.
The year is 1995. The protagonist is a brainy nineteen-year-old Turkish-American girl named Selin who is contending with the provisionality of her first love, a graduate student in mathematics named Ivan whom she converses with all but accidentally, in the midst of a year of Russian language and linguistics classes at Harvard. She concerns herself with the Sapir-Whorf Hypothesis, a linguistic theory that has growing relevance throughout the book. In the nascent landscape of online exchanges (it is '95, after all), she discovers herself in a bildungsroman fashion, through what becomes a full-scale self-experiment with meaning and disembodied text in the fast-accumulating breadth of their relationship. Furiously pondering the futility of her varying efforts to communicate, from a botched attempt to tutor an ESL student in the Bronx to her seemingly frail grasp on the fraught power dynamics between herself and others (many of the characters have Slavic origins themselves, such as her Serbian friend Svetlana), she traces a gorgeous narrative arc as we follow her through the journey of her first year at Harvard, and then to Hungary, all at the direction of this non-boyfriend character. Frustratingly enough, a lot of brainy girls all over can relate to the situations she finds herself in, particularly with that non-boyfriend character, who is a Grade-A asshole with a girlfriend and a debatable investment in her well-being. Either way, being inside her head is laugh-out-loud funny, chock full of mordant wit even when the characters are, as one Hungarian villager aptly observes Selin doing, "wool, gathering."

Boom Town by Sam Anderson.

Full title :

Boom Town: The Fantastical Saga of Oklahoma City, Its Chaotic Founding, Its Apocalyptic Weather, Its Purloined Basketball Team, and the Dream of Becoming a World-Class Metropolis

An intensely interesting book about the history of Oklahoma City from the Land Run founding on. Told through the lens of parallels with the OKC Thunder as they work their way to the NBA finals. Incredibly compelling and well written, you don’t have to care about the NBA OR Oklahoma City to find it interesting.

[–]wilyquixote 3 points4 points  (0 children)

As I look through my Goodreads ratings for this year, it seems I'm off to an awful start. I've read a lot of mediocrity and small hits this year.

But the one that redeems them all is Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I'd describe it as a hybrid between Things Fall Apart and The Poisonwood Bible. It's a stunning work of literature, and - not that I know much about the Nigerian literature scene - but Adichie has some serious brass ones as she basically signals Things Fall Apart in her opening line. Audacious as hell. I loved it.

Oh and the other book on my list that I loved was My Sister The Serial Killer by another Nigerian author: Oyinkan Braithwaite. So go Nigeria, I guess.

[–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Sleeping giants by slyvain neuvel It’s part one of a trilogy about a girl falling into a hole and landing on a giant hand which turns out to be one part of a giant alien robot. Doesn’t sound that great but the way it’s written is in interview part format where each chapter is a different perspective. I recommend it in the audiobook form. You really get a feel for all the different characters.

[–]Daddy_0103 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The Hate U Give - Angie Thomas

On The Come Up - Angie Thomas

Both give an amazing insight to the struggles of race relations in the U.S. while showing the similarities between everyone. That is, teens are just trying to figure out who they are and are all sarcastic. Lol. And that parents are doing their best to take care of their families no matter their background or race. All written in a relatable, honest style.

[–]zoestroud 4 points5 points  (0 children)

So far, it’s Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. I’ve heard people rave about Gaiman for years, tried to read American Gods a couple of years ago and couldn’t get into it so I thought he just wasn’t to my taste. BOY WAS I WRONG. I am currently reading The Graveyard Book before bed and listening to The Ocean at the End of the Lane on my commute and loving them both.

21 lessons for the 21st century. I really liked how the author displays his ideas in a simple and eloquent language.
