Chinese author Geling Yan writes the amusing fable tale of Dan Dong, a "reserved" factory worker, who hasn't been paid for over two months. To make ends meet Dan attends a job interview, but is mistaken for a journalist at a fancy business banquet. Dan takes full advantage and forges a new identity as freelance journalist, taking full benefits of the free meals and "money for your troubles". Deceit soon catches up with Dan when he befriends several crazy characters. This is a nice little change break from crime thrillers we see everyday.

Winner of The Pulitzer Prize for fiction in 2007, Cormac McCarthy introduces us to his vision of post-apocalyptic America. In this setting a father and his young son travel the roads, in search of the coast. I found this book quite a difficult read, the challenges that the family come across is daunting. You are given short glimces of hop, when they discover luxuries such as canned food and dry shelter. Read this fascinating book.
