This play is fantastic (you really can't go wrong with Neil Simon). It's the perfect blend of drama in a comedic format, and listening to these incredible actors perform it so well was really delightful. I would definitely recommend listening to this performance.
This book is powerful, beautifully narrated, and actually ended up starting me on a longer string of research about what it really means to be vegetarian in the 21st century. Foer has always been among my favorite authors (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close had me in tears in the first few chapters) and he made the switch from novelist to journalist extremely well. This is an important book if you want to learn more about where your meals are actually coming from. Read this book.
Kristof and WuDunn have written a book based on relentless empiricism and good reporting and it ends up being one of the most wildly important and unbelievably powerful books I've ever read in my entire life. Seriously. Read/listen to this book. The narration is clear and extremely well-suited to writing of this caliber and power. READ. THIS. BOOK.
I've always loved Murakami, and this book is no different. It's brilliantly told and poetic and meandering and maybe not for some people, but if you're looking for something different in literature Murakami is definitely the way to go. But more than that, I was honestly blown away by Degas' performance in this - his voice is perfect. The performance is subtle and energetic and everything I had imagined a Murakami book should sound when voiced. Very well done, I highly recommend this book.
I would actually rank this book among the top best books I've ever read in my entire life. The performance is understated brilliance, and the book itself is beyond amazing. I thought Foer was incredible in Everything is Illuminated, but Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close knocks it out of the park. It's poetic and sad and raw and I don't have enough space to write all I want, so I'll end this here.
