March / April Readings

Here's a short list of what I have read during March/April.

  • Suzanne Collins - The Hunger Games - Found it an easy to read & well paced. Looking forward to the next two books.
  • Teju Cole - Open City - Like Teju's style of writing. The story is around the reflections of an African man in New York. Its rally quite well done, I love the description of Maher's 9th Symphony, how he describes New York & her people.
  • Rachel Held Evans - Evolving in Monkey town (reviewed in a separate post)
  • Amin Maalouf - Disordered world - just started this - and a key point the author makes is - how both [the Arab world & the west] have both reached the limits of what they could achieve as separate civilisations ... what I resented most about the Arab world was its lack of moral conscience, and what I resented most about the west was its propensity to turn its moral conscience into an instrument of domination".
