Arundhati Roy & Alexander Master

i read Cormac McCarthy's "The Road". start to end.
i read Vertigo's "Exterminators". start to end.

usually, the reason for me to not finish a book is that it doesn't grab me. with those 2 books, it was the other way round: Arundhati Roy's essays on the politics of power, and Alexander Master's story about a homeless drug-addict and criminal - they both got under my skin. in a way that made me shiver. and made me surrender from the pages.
