BOOK RECOMMENDATIONS

Read any good books lately? Please share. It's always interesting to hear what people like and don't like.

I am reading THE RELUCTANT FUNDAMENTALIST by Mohsin Hamid for book club. In addition to being a riveting page-turner, this first-person tale is seductive, luring me page by page to the point where I know that I can finish the novel in an hour, but I don't want it to end that quickly.

The shift between narratives is effortless. The character Erica is beautifully and sadly rendered, and I think I love her as much as the main character, Changez. My only fear is that what I "suspect" might happen is going to happen. I don't really know. I sure hope the ending is as good as the first half.
