What’s the best book you read this year? Worst? Favorite?
Best book I read this year: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. (Can you believe I have never read this book, The Great American Novel, before?)
Worst book I read: The Human Stain by Philip Roth. (Perhaps it is because of all the critical acclaim it received but it was a very difficult book to read and I was very disappointed. I did finish it, however. There were other books that I abandoned mid-book. I guess one of those really should be the worst.)
Favorite book of the year: Tales of the Madman Underground by John Barnes. (I love, love, love this book and it seems like no one else has read it.)
