Last Five Novels (Including Graphic Novels)

The last five novels I’ve read are as follows:


-Akira by Katsuhiro Otomo (volumes 1 and 2)

Classics as far as manga go; These graphic novels have incredible art, unique characters, and an intriguing story. Not to mention, the main character’s motorcycle is freaking amaza.


-Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. Dick

The inspiration for Blade Runner.


-Shadow of the Hegemon by Orson Scott Card

The sequel to Ender’s Shadow, Card writes characters you can get to know.


-Maus: My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman

A comic artist’s retelling of stories from his father, a concentration camp survivor. It’s painful to read, but worth it.

So, there they are. I’d be interested to hear what others have been reading of late, and what they suggest.
