08:53 am - The Physiognomy, Jeffrey Ford
Okay, I have no idea how to pronounce the title.

Cley is a pompous, self-righteous asswipe. He's also the most powerful underling in The Master's Well-Built City. With his ability to read faces, Cley has sent hundreds of people to their doom.

The Master sends him to a small town to find who stole a fruit which is supposed to grant immortality, and get it back. While there, some things happen that call into question Cley's entire outlook on life.

Cley was such a prick at the beginning of this novel that it was hard for me to keep reading. Still, the story was worth it. Quite an interesting combination of sci-fi and fantasy elements, with a truly bizarre underpinning.
