Booking Through Differently

What was the most unusual (for you) book you ever read? Either because the book itself was completely from out in left field somewhere, or was a genre you never read, or was the only book available on a long flight… whatever? And, did you like it? Did it stretch your boundaries?

Yellow Knife by Steve Zipp comes into mind. It was an interesting book but very difficult to summarise. It defies description. I liked the use of symbols, metaphors and signs. And the journey along with the author. Somehow, there aren't enough words about how the book makes us feel. A difficult read but well worth it. I did review it but not the way I wanted to. I learnt a lot about Canada, a country I know nothing about.
