Reading List - 2011

This is turning out to be not so great year for reading. Read my last year's Reading list. Here is a list of what I have been able to manage this year

  1. Crime and Punishment by  Fyodor Dostoyevsky (Drama, an awesome one)
  2. This will change Everything : Ideas That Will Shape the Future by Mr. John Brockman (Ideas from an assortment of people about what they think will change the world. Good, but the ideas have just been touched upon, could have done with some elaboration)
  3. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen (Historical novel and a very good one)
  4. The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger (Sci-fi/romantic and very fascinating)
  5. Superfeakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner (Freaky Economics, a book perhaps marred by the expectation from a sequel of its predecessor. Good one in its own right)
  6. The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson (A novel. The booker guys know their stuff)
  7. 1984 by George Orwell (A novel. Ah! what a novel)
  8. Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (Super engaging read)
  9. The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger (Another must read)
