I was reading Booklist today. I am looking forward to seeing Beautiful Maria of My Soul by Oscar Hijuelos out in June. I enjoyed reading The Mambo Kings Sing Songs of Love. I am a bit conflicted about the book, He Walked Among Us by Norman Spinrad. It is a science fiction story about a prophet from the future. It has very mixed reviews. I liked reading Child of Fortune and Bug Jack Barron by him.
I checked out The Dream of Perpetual Motion by Dexter Palmer which looks like a more literary style of steampunk. It should be interesting. I tried to read some of it on the train, but found myself losing interest. I follow the fifty page rule where if a book does not hold my interest after fifty pages, I usually stop reading it. I read until page 62. The style is fine, but a bit dry. I think I will read something else.
