review 1: Lovely, lovely prose. Mr. Baker does a great job of being delightful and interesting; however, where he fails is at being exciting. There's really no plot to this story, or I suppose you could say there is, but it's so quiet as to barely be worth mentioning. The thing is, I didn'...

review 1: I came to this book at just the right moment in my life to really appreciate it. The themes of procrastination, solitude, and literary appreciation came together perfectly for me, and I basically wanted to spend all my time reading it. I think I might have found the narrative voi...

review 1: I'll just review this with the one question that kept running through my mind as I read this book - ...um...What?? I gave it 2 stars instead of one because I honestly read it twice and although it made no more sense the second time around I found myself looking forward to some ra...

review 1: A collection of essays. Some topics I liked, some I didn't care for - but each was written with carefully selected interesting words and I like that kind of thing. One essay I esp. liked is "One Summer". The author makes me think about and see things in a way I haven't before....
