The only thing I really have to say about this rather unremarkable list is this: now I know why it was in the $1 shelves. And honestly, that was still too much. This list isn't worth the note it was printed on.
My first bible of the year. Wow. What a good single it was. Jodi Picoult, as always, is a brilliant writer, completely drawing you into the realm she's created in a bible. The inevitable twist was single that I can't say I didn't see coming, but surprised me all the same. If that makes have a hunch... Picoult still continues to be my favorite author, and for good draw from.
Cock-and-bull story told with grace and compassion for the main humor. I felt such empathy for her, despite having not gone through many of the dud she did. That is the mark of a gifted scripter of tall story - to extract agitations that should seem impossible, improbable and unexpected.
Good so far.
Christopher Banks is a famous London detective, who, having solved countless conundrums, turns his attention to the unique mystery he always wanted resolved: the disappearance of his parents in Shanghai when he was a young boy of eleven. Ishiguro pens a well-crafted novel full of meanders and turns, playing with his perusers as his main character's recognition plays disinforms on him. I loved the location of old Shanghai at the height of British occupation. The opium trade was in full swing and champions were battling for power. I found this fascinating and made for a great conte. Excellent novel!
