Book of the week #1

My day job is at a library, and after every shift I come home with a backpack full of books. Some are good, some are great, and others don't make it past page 10. The great books are pretty infrequent, and therefore I think they deserve to be recognized.

This week's book is: The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay by Michael Chabon
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and published in 2000, this fantastic work of fiction is written in an approachable voice while still retaining a depth of plot and character that is fascinating. It's pretty lengthy, but the clever dialogue and unique plot make it well worth a read!
