Art Garfunkel famously keeps track of the books he has read since 1968. As of writing this, the count is 1327 (he does not add a review). I thought I could do something similar but I am adding short reviews of books as I read them, and I rake my brain over what I read over the last decades. This is, evidently, a work-in-progress: there are 409 reviews so far. Titles marked with a * are particular favorites.


Michael Dibdin: Ratking

The first of the Inspector Zen series, but the only one I have read (perhaps so far). Aurelio Zen is an interesting and well-formed character, and the book is (as good crime stories tend to be) a chilling portrait of an Italy riddled with organized crime.
