Reading a Thousand Lives

I'm a goodreads refugee. I read horror, classics, literary, science fiction, YA, weird, regency romances, historical fiction, history, science, fantasy and random bits and pieces of every genre, it seems like. I don't do as much reading and reviewing as I used to, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.

Revenge - Yōko Ogawa,  Stephen Snyder The way Yoko Ogawa weaves the characters and situations together is amazing, and I love the way the novel turned full circle. Its cerebral, literary, floating. Every character was well defined and interesting--a woman with a heart outside her body, a curator of a museum entirely of torture devices, a paranoid old woman. Yoko Ogawa has a way of saying so much in such a small amount of space with equal parts sophistication and simplicity.This is a must read.
