Some of us really do know how to read!
The Dinner - Herman Koch. A surprisingly terrific book. The story has numerous unexpected twists and turns, dished out in small portions just like courses at a restaurant. If you've looking for a different, but dark and twisted thriller, give this one a crack.
The Phantom - Jo Nesbø. Not the best of Nesbø's Harry Hole series, but not the worst. Still full of red herrings and plot twists right to the end, but Harry just continues to get so beat up, it definitely feels like Nesbø was about done with writing about him. I'm betting the next book is the last in the series, and it's probably time for Harry to retire.
Rogue Lawyer - John Grisham. Arguably Grisham's most entertaining book in awhile. It's more like a series of novellas starring the same main character, somewhat linked together to form one novel. While it's a pretty exciting book, the tales do go well beyond believablility, mostly because all this ridiculous things happen in a short time to the same guy, and with one exception, ultimately work out for the best for him. Quick, enjoyable, mindless read, just nothing deep to contemplate.
