Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

I hope it's not too "brutal", but I am ready for a good mystery. I don't usually read this type of book but a new reading adventure awaits me. Thanks!!

I share your love of the books by Stieg Larsson but I haven't read anything by Henning Mankell. What would you recommend as a good read by Mankell?  Thank you.

Not my usual genre, but that's why I love First Look.  I have enjoyed reading the previous FL selections.  This club has pushed me outside my comfort zone and it's been a rewarding experience.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

Floreader,  I completely agree.  I participated in the Wake of Forgiveness discussion.  This is book I would have looked at because of the gorgeous cover, but I don't think I would have read it.  It is one of the best books I have read this year and am so thankful to get to participate in this wonderful group.

This isn't normally a book I would pick up, either, but it sounds great! I'm always open to reading new titles and genre's. I love the diversity of all the First Look picks. :smileyhappy:

 

Thanks Paul! :smileyhappy:


This is the best part of First Look: reading what you normally wouldn't. To experience new authors and expand your horizons.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

  This sounds like it's a book right up my alley.  I love to read mysteries  and espionage and this looks like it will fit the bill.  Bravo to First Look for what looks like another great read.

This is great! I have just read "The Man Who Went Up In Smoke" a 1966 novel written by Maj Sjowall and Per Wahloo two Swedish writers. Also The "Girl Who Play with Fire" . I am really enjoying Swedish authors.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

Hey Floreader:  

I too would not have read this otherwise, so now I am glad to be waiting for the book to read now that I am a FL reader.

Re: About Three Seconds and the Authors

To wjbauer:

 

What is different -or special- about the Swedish writers-authors- whom you've read so far?  Can you pinpoint any particular style or prose?
