Today, I got three new books. Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk, The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman, and Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke. Of those three, I’ve finished Pygmy and The Graveyard Book. To be honest, both were quite short. Pygmy was harder to read because it was written strangely, through the broken-English voice of a pygmy terrorist. I usually hate when authors do this. It makes their books a lot harder to read.
The Graveyard Book was good, but short. Neil Gaiman wrote a beautiful book. However, I wanted there to be more, but I understood that it was meant for the young adult market.
Pygmy is the first Palahniuk novel I have read and bought. Even though I hate novels that use a special vocabulary instead of English, like Pygmy, I liked this book. I was a bit surprised at the way it ended. I expected more controversy and I didn’t get any. The ending was a bit disappointing. Still, it was interesting and made me want to read his other books.
