So here we are again with another random book selection.
I did not finish the last book, but I did make an attempt to read it. I’m not sure what to say about Bear. I couldn’t relate to any of the characters, nor did I find them believable. I couldn’t buy into the story either. It started out as a normal, if not mundane book. Then it just got weird and didn’t live up to the hype. I think I gave up around page 80.
This trip to the library I completely bypassed the fiction section. I started wandering through non-fiction with no destination in mind. My library switched to a system where the books are divided by category, and then in Dewey decimal order within the category. It makes no sense to me. I found numerical order to be much more straightforward. I guess that makes me out of touch with the times.
So I’m browsing the non-fiction and come across a section called “Unexplained”. Seriously. Is this really a classification of literature? It was right next to “True Crime”, which I did consider. I opted out because I don’t believe in violence as entertainment, although all crimes are not violent. Maybe I’ll give that section a try later.
The book I chose is The Afterlife of Billy Fingers by Annie Kagan. Once again, there was little info on the book jacket. I decided NOT to look this one up online. I don’t want to know.
Unexplained. It still cracks me up.
