The Bone Clocks: A Novel

I thought it an excellent read, highly original and very well told, even it does occasionally stray too close to Dan Brown territory.


Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay

“Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay” is the story of a furious friendship, and the internal violence suffered by two women set against the turbulent landscape of a fractured Italy.


The Most Dangerous Book: The Battle for James Joyce's Ulysses

“The Most Dangerous Book” will remain a landmark among Joyce studies for many years to come.


F: A Novel

“F” is splashed with vivacious, hilarious characters and incidents that, with distance and time, transmogrify into something quite sinister indeed.


Forgetting to Be Afraid: A Memoir

Doubtless we’ll be hearing more from Davis. This modest memoir makes it clear why even her opponents should pay attention to her.


The Ambassadors: A Novel
Kirkus Reviews : The Ambassadors (September 17, 2014)

This novel has good bones obscured by too much flab.


Broken Monsters
Kirkus Reviews : Broken Monsters (September 17, 2014)

Beukes gave us a time traveling serial killer in The Shining Girls, and the monsters in her latest tale, whether they’re real or imagined, will keep you up all night.


Broadchurch
Kirkus Reviews : Broadchurch (September 17, 2014)

Kelly folds a loving portrait of rural Dorset and a well-made whodunit into a painstaking account of the grief and unimaginable pain that follow in the wake of one child’s murder.


Noontide Toll: Stories
Kirkus Reviews : Noontide Toll (September 17, 2014)

A moving chronicle of hope triumphing over despair from the author of The Match.


The Infinite Sea
Kirkus Reviews : The Infinite Sea (September 17, 2014)

A roller-coaster ride of a sequel.


I'll Give You the Sun

Here’s a narrative experience readers won’t soon forget.


Life Deluxe
Kirkus Reviews : Life Deluxe (September 17, 2014)

Through it all, Lapidus wastes no opportunity to explore the labyrinthine affinities between his heroes and villains. Better put aside the whole weekend for this guided tour of his Swedish hell.


Thirteen Days in September: Carter, Begin, and Sadat at Camp David

A unique moment in history superbly captured. Yet another triumph for Wright.


The Blood of an Englishman

Agatha’s 25th is another rollicking mixture of clever mystery-making and love gone wrong.


Lovely, Dark, Deep

An excellent collection of short fiction in its own right. Its evocation of the uncanny and the disturbing within seemingly mundane personal relationships is reminiscent of the great short stories of Flannery O’Connor.


The Blood of an Englishman

I continue to be entertained by M.C. Beaton and Agatha Raisin and hope to be for many years to come.
