  1. I had the same experience with Cloud Atlas &, since it’s known to be a hard read, I probably won’t try it again. I would like to go back to The Corrections, tho, & I’d like to read an Ishiguro. Encourage you to retry Anna Karenina. And Light in August. Blind Assassin is a contemporary classic, I guess, but I didn’t get much out of it. Black Boy might seem a bit dated now.
