Books 17-19

#17. "Rules of Attraction" by Bret Easton Ellis.
I loved this book. I thought that because I'd already seen the movie adaptation I wouldn't enjoy it as much. Not true. The device he uses of jumping from perspective to perspective of events is conatnatly interesting. The events of the book couldn't be called interesting when explainly, it's the misunderstandings and secret thoughts of each character that make this a must read

#18. "Glamarama" by Bret Easton Ellis.
The 3rd book in my Ellis- Bender :) I enjoyed this and could never quite predict where it was going. Not the most enjoyable read I've ever had though. Unlike the literary style of "Rules of attraction", the text and descriptions of asthetics and celbrity are relelntless and dense. I did lose interest from one chapter to another at times. That wouldn't have been an issue if the book wasn't about 200 pages too long...Did Mostly Enjoy but wouldn't recommend!

#19. "The Fall" by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan
The 2nd book of 'The strain' trilogy. Oh dear, the scoobies aren't doing too well against a unending wave of the savage undead. But of course that makes it all the more interesting :) Would recommend if Apocalyptic battles are your thing :)
