Since I’ve moved, I haven’t had a chance to talk much about the books I’ve been reading, though I have been reading an awful lot now that I have a much coveted Sno-Isle Library Card.
Two that I read right before I left Illinois and (listened to) on the way out here are:
Dean Koontz – Odd Hours: Koontz threw me for a loop with the fourth book in his Odd Thomas series. I enjoyed the middle two, but felt that they were in every way inferior to a great first book. But, with Odd Hours, he delivers the best book since Odd Thomas, and though I wont say it is better, it is definitly a worthy sequel. Note: I picked up the graphic novel based on Kootnz series – In Odd We Trust. Don’t worry about it unless your just a die hard fan. The story is simplistic and boring at best.
Sebastian Faulks – Devil May Care: Faulks tries to capture the spirit of Ian Fleming with this brand new James Bond novel, but at every turn he falls just short. I found this one to be a fun read, but if you haven’t read Ian Fleming’s masterful library of Bond, you should start there and never look back.
How about you, faithful reader, reading anything I should be checking out?
