Role Models and others

(viewed 1269 times)
Role Models by John Waters, an excellent read. Entertaining as only Waters can be.

A Dark Matter by Peter Straub, disappointing. Thin plot, too mystical-woo and bogged down by minutia.

Paul Is Undead by Alan Goldsher, just started this, it's a delight.

The Monster in the Box by Ruth Rendell, classic Rendell and a good read.

The Whisperers by John Connolly, I'm a fan, but this was a silly mess.

Fever Dream by Preston & Child, a Pendergast book, but I wasn't terribly impressed. I keep waiting for something as good as The Cabinet of Curiosities.

The Red Queen by Matt Ridley, I haven't read this yet but am really looking forward to it.

The Greatest Show on Earth by Richard Dawkins, what's not to love? I haven't read this yet either, but am looking forward to it.

Pride And Predjudice And Zombies

(viewed 1244 times)
Pride And Predjudice And Zombies, Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. What can I say? Zombies!

Also, The Inferno, Dante Alighieri, which I have read, more than once. It's one of those books that somehow disappeared from my shelves, so I'm replacing it.

Small Favor, Jim Butcher. The Dresden books. Like sorbet for the brain, light and frothy.

the best book I've read in 3ish years. Works on so many levels.

The trouble is that, having read it, it's much more difficult to get into anything of the same genre
