blurb: This wry tale follows bumbling bureaucrat Walter F. Starbuck from Harvard to the Nixon White House to the penitentiary as Watergate's least known co-conspirator.
review: There's not much to say about this novel, it's traditional Vonnegut, but I must say I think it might be my favorite, along with Cat's Cradle. He's just a genius. full review
31. Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy (5/5) (817 pages)
blurb: Anna Karenina tells of the doomed love affair between the sensuous and rebellious Anna and the dashing officer, Count Vronsky. Tragedy unfolds as Anna rejects her passionless marriage and must endure the hypocrisies of society.
review: This was epic. The buildup was perfect, and at the end was just begging for it to be over for her, her torment was so realistic. Excellent on all accounts. full review
