107. A Room With a View; 108. W.A.R.: The Unauthorized Biography of William Axl Rose

A Room With a View
by E.M. Forster

Started: February 19, 2010

Writing as good as anything Jane Austen ever did but with characters who don't make me pull my hair out because they're so damned proper even when it's against all common sense. I'd never really read any Forster before this but if the rest of his novels are anything like this, he will quickly become one of my all-time favorite novelists. A truly fantastic read. 182 pages. Grade: A+

W.A.R.: The Unauthorized Biography of William Axl Rose

A decent look at the history of Guns 'N Roses with a focus on Axl Rose. The book suffers in the last 50 or so pages when the author has obviously had no contact with people personally involved in Rose's life so he was reduced to reciting facts about the band's recent doings. A decent book but nothing special. 341 pages. Grade: B-
