5.0 étoiles sur 5 Just taking a break, Sept. 7 2006
I finally decided to take a break from my current genre of books. Having been immersed in the "funny, weird, laugh-out-loud" kinds (Sedaris' ME TALK PRETTY and McCrae's KATZENJAMMER) I decided to take on the thriller genre. So DECEPTION POINT seemed like the natural choice. And it was. Now, I haven't read Brown's other books, but I'm going to as soon as possible. If they're any bit as good as D.P., then I'll be pleased. Was the plot somewhat improbable? You bet. But then think of any good book or movie you've read lately. How realistic was that? My advice? If you're not a Dan Brown fan, read D.P.-----and you soon will be.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Very funny, Sept. 7 2006
This review is from: The Undomestic Goddess (Paperback)
Okay, first off, you have to get into that "willing suspension of disbelief" to go with the plot. But what good book doesn't require that? It's hard to tell you about the flavor of this book. It's sort of a "The Firm" by Grisham meets "Katzenjammer" by McCrae. Sweeting is the protagonist in this fun book (as she was in "Shopaholic and Sister"---which I loved, and she continues in this one with her usual antics. Anyone who has worked in a corporate environment will take to the things this poor woman has to go through, and even if you haven't, you'll find yourself cringing and laughing at the same time at the weird and wonderful scenarios that Kinsella puts before you. My advice? Buy this book and have a wonderful time.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Most unusual, Sept. 7 2006
I love any book that has an unusual premise or form. You know the ones I'm talking about. Think "Life of Pi," with its surprise ending or McCrae's "Katzenjammer" with it even MORE surprise ending and insightful construction. So it was only natural that I'd be drawn to "Curious Incident." Told through the eyes of an autistic teenager this is more than just an intersting look at "the other side." My only complaint with the book was that the kid (narrator) got on my nerves a bit. But then, I suppose that's the point--he also got on his parents nerves a lot, too.

This will not be everyone's type of read, but if you're looking for something that's really different, this is it.
