Review: Dear Mr. M

Dear Mr. M
Dear Mr. M by Herman Koch
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A literary mystery that requires attention. Like The Dinner, I didn’t particularly care for any of the characters, but the storytelling and twists are quite compelling. Koch’s style is inventive, sardonically humorous, and uncomfortable in places. Recommended if you like your mysteries dark and complicated.

Review: The Heart

The Heart
The Heart by Maylis de Kerangal
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lyrically written, this short novel was entrancing. The symbolism of the heart as at the center of all things is beautifully expressed. Totally compelling and a fabulous translation!
