Still Alive

No, I am not dead. What is the What is just taking me a little while. (I mean it is just short of 500 pages, what did you expect?)

This book is quite interesting. Thought I was disappointed when I was on's website and they had an article about "What is Angelina Jolie reading?" and I clicked on it and it was What is the What. Figures!!

Anyhow, back to the book. I wonder how Dave Eggers was able to get all this information. It is actually a fiction account, but does Valentino actually really exisit out there under some other name? And if so, how close is this to the actual truth? I realize that is not the point, but I am curious. So many of the "Lost Boys" stories must be so similar that I wonder if this is just a general account of many stories Eggers had heard about or on particular story.

Anyhow I am throughly enjoying this book. I am about 300 pages in. I hope to finish it over the next two weeks.

On a roll..

The Bookseller of Kabul was an excellent, excellent read! I loved it. The writing style was suprub and I loved the story line. It was great getting a different view point from different memebers of the family each chapter. It ceses to amaze me how people of different parts of the world live in such different ways and believe such different things.

Anyhow.. this book comes highly recommended!
