review 1: I picked this book up from the "new" shelf at the library because it was centered around the Brussels World's Fair in 1958...we visited the site when we were over there and I thought it would be fun to learn more about the event. This was a cute book involving Soviet and British...

review 1: For somebody who has lived in visits Brussels frequently an amusing story, nostalgia of the '50s and also written in the "greyness" of that decade! Relationships lack emotion whether they are between male and female or of the same sex. The ending seems to have been botched togeth...

review 1: This is one of the most engaging books I've read in awhile. I often found myself thinking about it, and actually looking forward to the next chance I could read a few more chapters. Maxwell Sim is such a lovable narrator, a totally clueless man who's had a pretty unimpressive lif...

review 1: The plot description reeled me in, the 3 diversions from the story hit a snag in the flow of the book. I find that Maxwell's disregard that he had a job to perform was a major hole in the story. (Even if the author foreshadows the company's financial downfall) It seemed too conve...

review 1: Esta vida de Max é privada de comunicação, de afeto, sob o céu aberto da ironia das oportunidades da virtualidade comunicativa. Neste âmbito, a história, cujo narrador é autodiegético, é hilariante; basta recordar dois momentos, no início: quando o protagonista, na sua necessida...
