The most recent week has been a great one for reading. Here’s the list:
The Keeper of Lost Causes and The Absent One by Jussi Adler-Olsen
Incredibly dark mysteries from Danish writer Adler-Olsen. Comparisons to Stieg Larsson Girl books will be constant and well-deserved, but I think Adler-Olsen is more fun. There aren’t many laughs in the murderous romps of Lisbeth and Mikael. Detective Carl Morck of the hastily-formed and under-staffed Department Q has a better sense of humor, but the cases certainly aren’t any more heartwarming.
The Good Soldier Svejk by Jaroslav Hasek
Reading it again. Impossibly funny.
Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut
Just got the urge again. Read it in a couple of doctor’s waiting rooms (yes, they were long waits this week)
How about you? Anyone reading anything great?
