Books

It's been awhile, I've been working on a lot of new stuff, and will start sharing some recent work soon. Until then I thought I would give some reading tips on a few books I've recently read.

The third policeman by Flann O'Brien
- Probably the strangest book I've ever read but I loved it. Don't really know how to explain this or give a proper summary of it with out going on telling you the whole story but it involves rooms where time does not exist, people turning into bicycles, a postman who is 71% bicycle, building boxes within boxes, mystery and hidden roads. 

Man in the dark by Paul Auster
- I've heard a lot of good things about the writings of Paul Auster so I had to check it out, this is one of his more recent books. I really enjoyed the first part of this mystery story involving parallel universes and dreamlike scenarios, but felt a bit disappointed of the second part but I will definitely have to check out more of his books, the new york trilogy is suppose to be really good.

The secret life of Houdini by William Kalush and Larry Sloman
- This is a biography of the life of magician and escape artist Harry Houdini. If you liked movies such as the prestige and the illusionist or are just a fan of illusions you should definitely read this book. Found it very interesting and hope it will be turned into a good movie some day soon :)
