Recently (too many bad)...

The Bad

Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Suskind
Interesting enough for the most part though left the reader feeling icky. Silly ending.

Blinding Light by Paul Theroux
Upon finishing this paperback, I tossed it in the recycle bin with bored disgust. No need to try to sell back or share or donate. I should have given up by pg. 60 or so.

Drowning Ruth by Christina Schwarz
Picked it up among a pile of free medical books by Gentry's apt in NY. Fine but, epitomizes the lamer aspects of former "Oprah Book Club" books. Kind of predictable.

The Good

The Road by Cormac McCarthy
It's the future and everything really, really sucks. Still can't get some of the images out of my head. Fantastic. Heart breaking.

Confessions of a Teen Sleuth by Chelsea Cain
This I read a month or two ago. Parody of Nancy Drew books. Short and delightful.
