What I am reading now

    I recently completed a five week trip to India, and managed to read a number of excellent books, one of which I want to recommend to you. I thoroughly enjoyed Rosamund Lupton’s debut novel, Sister, and looked forward to picking it up whenever I had a spare moment. The prose was excellent, and the characters very interesting. The tension built up gradually right up until the very satisfying climax. Yes, there were twists, incredible ones, and I defy anyone to say that the reader could see them coming. I am surprised that this book has not been touted as the great summer read of 2011. One review for Sister did label it Hitchcockian, and I must admit it does have that feel to it in numerous passages, and for me that is a good thing. On another level, the story deals with genetic research and application and raises some difficult questions dealing with the boundaries of genetic research and treatment that also enhance the reading experience here.

    Little White Death is the first Lawton book I read and it hooked me. I have since read all but the most current book and look forward to “Lily of the Field” with mixed emotions, not wanting the series to end. I think this is a terrific series with excellent characters, fascinating history, great writing, and lots of sizzle. I have been intrigued by his non-chronological approach to story-telling and found that it worked for me but I can’t say why. My only disappointment is that Lawton doesn’t seem to sell in the USA and that is most unfortunate for American readers. Ken

    I am thinking of ordering The Unlucky Lottery. I would love to know what you think of it so far.

    Thank you,

      The Unlucky Lottery orinal title Munsters fall is in my opinion it is one of Hakan Nesser’s best in the series despite VV only making a cameo appearance. A review will be up in a few days.
