    "The setting for this is a little too early for my taste. The description makes me feel nostalgic for my childhood summers though. You don't realize how special they were until they're gone."

    "This is a pretty gripping book, and I finished it in just two days. It doesn't really have the strangeness of Twin Peaks though. Strange isn't always good, but in Twin Peaks the strangeness is crucial. Gone Girl is definitely psychological, and we are definitely dealing with some people on the psychological fringe, but they are dealt with somewhat realistically, but in a rather textured and gripping way."

    "Incorporating mystery and mythology, A Wild Sheep Chase written by Haruki Murakami is a wild journey. While this is a good read, it's difficult to compare it to the book called Twin Peaks."
