|August book of the month!|
4 books were fantastic in my opinion, so I'm spoiled for choice for a book of the month, 3 were better than good and the only 3 star-rating was good in its own way, but kind of slow. Having finished the last 3 whilst on holiday and the 4th from last the day before we went, I'll be catching up on reviews for them all in the next week.
Book of the month and not just because two of the 5-stars haven't been reviewed was Dietrich Kalteis - Ride the Lightning.
Judged on the basis of, if I had to read 1 of these again, that's what I would reach for, followed by Freemantle, then Fusco.
John Fusco - Dog Beach (5)
Robert Silverberg - Pickup (4)
Alan Jones - The Cabinetmaker (4)
Dietrich Kalteis - Ride the Lightning (5)
John Stonehouse - An American Outlaw (4) - on reflection re-scored to (5)
Brian Freemantle - Charlie M (5)
Allen Eskins - The Life We Bury (5)
Martin Clark - The Many Aspects of Mobile Home Living (3)
