Kinski by Gabriel Hardman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Weird, weird, weird. Joe finds a black lab puppy while on an out-of-town business meeting and decides that it's his responsibility to rescue the puppy from its owners, who may or may not be neglecting it. Thru a series of more and more bizarre events, we watch Joe's life spiral out of control over the course of one weekend as he takes one extreme action after another in order to "rescue" this dog. He loses his job, alienates his friends, is beat up, and eventually arrested. All in this weekend, all over a dog he had never seen before. I'm not really sure what the point of the story is? Maybe there isn't meant to be a point, but the feel good ending didn't quite somehow mesh with the rest of the story. The art and writing are sparse and direct, which helps add to the story's semi-noir crime feeling.
All around, this is a pretty loose 3.

I simply want to read.
I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.
As always, happy reading!
2017 editI will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year. 2017 edit #2I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bear with me as I still continue to recover.
