28 books finished in 2014: The Lives of Rocks

28 books finished in 2014

Important fact: I have a new book pusher. I’m overdue posting about this book because the book is wrapped up with the man and I wanted to just keep them both to myself (and my closest friends) for a while. So when I recommend this book, you should know that I was predisposed to have a crush on it.

It’s a collection of short stories. Each sang a strong and distinct emotional note. I tried to define them with single words: feral, visceral, sensual, cold, mean, clueless, strange. There are more stories than words – I can’t remember them all – and the words don’t capture the rich settings of each story and overarching sense of calmness that permeates the book.
