A wonderfull short read that made me feel so many things at the same time, that it is hard for me to write an acurate review. Just read it and you will se for yourself...

Bookwormjillk It was a hard book to review, but a good one. 12mo

A raw and dusty start to what feels like will become a true epic piece of literature... it has so many impressive images i felt like puttin down the book to paint a whole bunch of times. A badass book for sci-fi and western lovers.

I really wanted to love this book as it started out with such fresh ways of getting the reader to feel like they are part of the story. The subject is very interesting and relevant as it's about the pros and cons of religious restrictions such as the burka.
But I have to say that either the writing style in general or the translation, plus me not being from Turkey made it an impossible read for me.

MommyWantsToReadHerBook That's sad, so far I've bailed on of his books too, I've heard such great things but wasn't drawn in 2y

This was a surprise for me. I picked it up not knowing what to expect, but very quickly fell in love with the mysterious incidents that these people are trying to solve together, each and everyone somehow being involved but not knowing anything about the secrets surrounding their small town of gold diggers and fortune seekers.

A wonderful and light journey through the lives and hearts of people living in 1843's chile. Love, shame, deceit and amazing temptations taking shape during the time of the california goldrush. Some characters take you on journeys throughout the world, while others sit at home with nothing but loss and hurt to keep them company...

It's 1939. A very intriguing and fast moving story about a Prague born escapist, that starts a new life as a comic book artist in new york while his family is left behind in the claws of uncertainty and death. All of which is put into a neat little heartbreaker full of Michael Chabon's fantastic, jewish humour. And it has that intriguing smell of the old world.

The Familiar, Volume 5: Redwood | Mark Z. Danielewski

Another quote that made me do a double take...

SkeletonKey I haven't gotten to Vol. 5 yet, has it been good? I've only read the first one. 2y
Fang88 @SkeletonKey YES! After the first one I honestly wasn't sure of wether I should continue, since it sure is very time and thought consuming. But with every chapter and every book it gets easier to read, as you start to adjust to the pace and the characters. It slowly starts to all come together. It gets super enthralling and less exhausting... It has become a very big part of my life even outside the book. 2y
SkeletonKey @fang88 - Ah that's excellent news! I was concerned about committing to such a big series without payoff. I'll keep going then 😄 2y

OSChamberlain @SkeletonKey Vol. 5 is insane! Definitely worth the trek. Though I thoroughly enjoyed all 4 volumes, 5 is definitely my favorite! 2y
bookmandan Oh wow, I read House of Leaves years ago and had no idea he had a series out. Guess I know how I'm starting 2018! 2y
Fang88 @bookmandan there is also a reading group for The Familiar on facebook which is really great. You might want to check that one out, we have become quite a tight knitt community on there... 2y

Now this is the kind of book, where I would want to immidiately make friends with anyone that has read it. It's that good! If you haven't read it yet, do yourself a favor and start reading it right now! It will suck you in (but without the garantee of spitting you back out).
