I have read many books by Michael Connelly. Is there anyone else out there that has read any books by him? I really enjoy reading books by this author, he keeps me into the book where I want to read and do not want to sit the book down until I figure it out or until I get to the end.

Amanda, I just finished a new (AND CONTROVERSIAL) book called Solemnly Swear. My expectations were low (new release from first-time author Joe Porrazzo) but this new book delivered a knock-out punch! It started with a great hook (a witness to a Mob murder is trapped in his bomb-laden car). The story started fast, and seemed a little predictable, until the twists and red herrings delivered a page-turning frenzy like I haven't had in awhile. This mystery thriller came with a huge payoff at the end that I never saw coming. Well written...well edited...this one's the sleeper of the year! Here's the info if you want to check it out:

Re: Suggested Topics

I've just started to read "The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz and would love to participate in a discussion of it.

NY Times review:
Junot Diaz's Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao is a wondrous, not-so-brief first novel that is so original it can only be described as Mario Vargas Llosa meets "Star Trek" meets David Foster Wallace meets Kanye West. It is funny, street-smart and keenly observed, and it unfolds from a comic portrait of a second-generation Dominican geek into a harrowing meditation on public and private history and the burdens of familial history. An extraordinarily vibrant book that's fueled by adrenaline-powered prose, it's confidently steered through several decades of history by a madcap, magpie voice that's equally at home talking about Tolkien and Trujillo, anime movies and ancient Dominican curses, sexual shenanigans at Rutgers University and secret police raids in Santo Domingo…It is Mr. Diaz's achievement in this galvanic novel that he's fashioned both a big picture window that opens out on the sorrows of Dominican history, and a small, intimate window that reveals one family's life and loves. In doing so, he's written a book that decisively establishes him as one of contemporary fiction's most distinctive and irresistible new voices.


Thanks!

Joel Osteen's "Become a Better You" should be a great topic! Thanks
