Remainder – It's What We're Reading


December
2012

A monthly offering from Drexel Library’s staff about the books we’ve read.

Remainder
Remainder
Tom McCarthy

To my mind, Remainder is a mystery.  From the start, the narrator /main character is recovering from a mysterious accident involving trauma to the head.  He receives a huge monetary settlement because of the accident, and how he proceeds to spend his fortune is the crux of the story.  Day by day, we follow him through a series of events that leaves us with the overriding question, WHY?  His obsessive quest to seek order in an unorderly world is both fascinating and disturbing.  If you are looking for something a bit away from the formulaic novel, this book is for you.

This book can be found in the Audio Book collection on the first floor of the Library.
