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.
The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel by Lauren Weisberger
The Devil Wears Prada: A Novel by Lauren Weisberger
I think Lauren Weisberger is probably not too upset with all the snarky reviews, since The Devil Wears Prada has been a solid hit seller. There are no great revelations here, but it is a quick, fun book to read. It could have done with a little more narrative drive and some judicious cutting, but hey what do you want from a beach or subway book?
p.s. Every time I see a picture of Anna Wintour since reading this, I think of the devilish boss in this book
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.
