Just finished reading The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, a departure from my usual reading material of science fiction and fantasy. The cover had caught my eye a few times so I finally got it last weekend or so. Read a little, but didn't have much time to get into it. That changed this weekend, though (and mostly today) as I sat down and read the whole thing.
I enjoyed it quite a bit, even if a lot of the reviews say it had a wandering plot (it probably did, but that doesn't usually bother me). It also made clear that I need to go back to reading more widely… too much of my reading over the past year or so has been only in the narrow, confining, and repetitive genre of science fiction/fantasy. There's too much other good literature out there that I need to not ignore.
Of course, having finished it, I'm now faced with needing to make a trip somewhere to pick up something new to read. And the long period of time involved in finding something to read. Suggestions from the peanut gallery?
