Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Fowler
Jane Austen Book Club by Karen Fowler
The Jane Austen Book Club is great fun to read. I've read a couple of Austen books, but am not a great Austen fan. After reading JABC, I may just have to go back and read more. I enjoyed the stories and the characters. This is not an event-filled novel, more a penetrating look at some of the small moments that make lives.
Hard Revolution by George P Pelecanos
Hard Revolution by George P Pelecanos
Much as "The Big Blowdown" took us back into the past of another set of Pelecanos' characters, "Hard Revolution" introduces us to the Sixties in the company of Derek Strange. Though not as searing as some of the DC-based crime novels in his body of work so far, "Hard Revolution" is a strong novel you won't want to miss--especially if you've read the other Derek Strange novels.
Smoke And Shadows by Tanya Huff
Smoke And Shadows by Tanya Huff
I was hyped to see that a new Tanya Huff vampire mystery was out, and disappointed to find no Victoria Nelson. The protagonist this time around is Henry Fitzroy's young "ward" Tony. Tony has become a production assistant on a cheaply-made television series about a vampire. He soon notices that the special effects lady is more special than usual, and that strange and sinister deaths are taking place on the set of the show. With a little help from Fitzroy and the special effects "Wizard", Tony sets out to save the world. This book is enjoyable and well-plotted, but lacks the zing of the "Blood" series.
