Books

  2. Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier A
  3. Slumdog Millionaire (originally published as Q & A) by Vikas Swarup B+ A much more interesting and colorful story than what made it into the film, but Idk, the English translation is kind of stilted.
  4. On the Road by Jack Kerouac B I like the prose, but what the book is actually about? Uh...
