Five Years Ago This Month: May 2011

Five years ago this month...

...I reviewed The Adventures of Augie March. Overall I found it really boring and it hasn't stuck with me beyond a few bits that were truly great. At this point I feel cautiously optimistic about Henderson the Rain King, Saul Bellow's next book on The List.

...I wrote about bad internet connections. Because I was working in The North at the time, this was very much on my mind. This was around the time that most of the "early adopter" types of people I know were getting their first iPhones. Things have actually improved since then!

...I reviewed Camille. The fact is that I don't have very clear memories of this book beyond the plot summary that I just read in my original review. Armand was sure a dick.
