Re: RARA-AVIS: What Are You Reading?

Date: 18 Sep 2007

Somewhere along the line, I lost track of two authors I had read pretty regularly, Ian Rankin and Michael Connelly. I recently decided to do something about that and read the next by each (I try to read in order, can be kind of anal about it): The Falls and Void Moon.

The Falls was great, can't imagine why it's been so long since I've read Rankin. His books get longer, but the added length is absolutely essential as his plots and characterization become more and more intricate. I'll be reading Resurrection Men very soon.

Void Moon was a good caper novel, even if some of the surprises were not early as surprising as I think they were supposed to be. Still, I very much enjoyed it, but not as much as his Bosch novels. The next of his for me to read is Darkness More Than Night. I'm pretty sure that's a Bosch novel.

I'm currently reading Die A Little. After all of the praise for Megan Abbott here, I had to check her out. I've barely started it, not nearly enough to form an opinion yet, but I do like her voice very much (and I'm usually not much of a fan of novels set in the past).

I've also recently picked up books by two listmembers, the latert from Allan Guthrie and Dave Zeltserman.
