Kazuo Ishiguro's When We Were Orphans was enthralling until the ending. Ishiguro paints a thoroughly detailed picture of Shanghai, but the story unravels as the end nears. Still, I look forward to reading more of Ishiguro's work, and admittedly was warned by several friends about this book (and avoided it for a year as it sat on my nightstand).
My next book is Art Of Modern Rock: The Poster Explosion.
