To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
Another author I’ve recently come to like is Gillian Flynn, and I was listening to Dark Places until it came due at the library. I like dark, and it delivers, so I’ll definitely renew it when my reservation comes back around!
I just finished The Lathe of Heaven by Ursula le Guin from 1971. It could be claimed as one of the original ideas as far as post-apocalyptic fiction is concerned, and perhaps ground-breaking, but there are so many others I’ve enjoyed much more.
It’s only just been released, but I’ve been excited about Khaled Hosseini’s new book And the Mountains Echoed for quite a while now. His other two titles, The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns, set a high bar for him to meet. I love that those books possibly introduced foreign worlds to some otherwise sheltered American readers who could then see the characters as real people instead of simply as exotic objects.
