SB Recommended Shit

This CD is all I have been listening to in my car for weeks now. I am still not tired of it. Highly recommended, if you like Morrissey or The Smiths. The more I listen to the damn thing, the more I dig it.
You can buy this novel cheaply off Amazon (used) because it's been out for several years. Excellent, gripping tale based on two actual brothers whose bodies were found buried amidst stacks of newspaper and collections in their own, once stately, home. Doctorow is such a great imaginative writer. I can't put the book down, and believe me, these days, it has to be one hell of a gripping book for me to finish it. I spend so much time on the computer everyday, I have basically NO DESIRE to read anymore. Anyhoo, highly recommended. Dark and disturbing and totally compelling.

Will definitely be checking out the CD. I will admit to enjoying "fluff" books. Hey, life is depressing enough with reading negative stuff. Ahhh, I love a happy ending!

Hmmm, I always like a good book recommendation. I trust your opinion, and it sounds creepily interesting. As soon as I finish the book I'm reading now, I'll check that out. I'm almost done with John Irving's new book, 'The Last Night in Twisted River'. It's okay. I love John Irving, I've read all but three of his books, and this is probably one of my least favorite. It's kind of slow, so it might take a bit before I can pick up a new one.

Looks like a good one.

I wonder when the hoarders show is going to find dead people in the hoarder house instead of just dead cats.

Nellie,
The new Irving book is on a stack upstairs in my "to-read" pile. I love him, but some of his books ARE VERY HARD to get into for sure.

Sending love to you,

SB

It would be good to get this on the Kindle. Thanks SB.

Lori said...

You DO have good taste in music!!!! I am impressed. Can you dance in those funky slippers you bought???

Sarcastic Bastard said...

Thank, Lori, I kind of think I have good taste, but then EVERYBODY thinks he/she has the best taste in music, don't they? It's so personal.

I can dance in the slippers, but I look dumb. I dance like a monkey on crack. My ex said so. Laugh.

Love you.
