I liked the first couple Reachers I read, but they're SO formulaic and Reacher is such a completely unbelievable character, I had to stop. (of course, you could arguably say that about Lucas Davenport in the Prey books, and I love those) Dawson, what do folks in the UK think about hte Robert Galbraith triology, the adult mystery series by JK Rowling? I just finished the third one and I've really enjoyed them all. They're kind of under the radar here, though--I don't think most americans realize she's written anything for adults (still haven't read Casual Vacancy) but I assume that's different across the pond...?


TBH I know nothing about them. I do want to read the prey books, they are on my list.
I'm not a JK fan tho. Never read any of the Harry Potter and know nothing about her adult stuff. I can say it gets a lot of coverage but it's not anything I ever paid attention to.

I'm reading Less Than Zero now - Bret Easton Ellis
You can tell it's his first book. Long sentences and the structure is all over the place but it's actually a really good book.

Just finished American Psycho. Bret Easton Ellis needs help. He's disturbed

Just read The Postman... apparently a modern day classic. It isn't that bad but nothing special that I can recall... will still read his other books now... just wouldn't put it in the classic category.

Next up is The Devil's Detective. I'm only 2 chapters in but hooked already. It is about a murder that has been committed, but the detective who is tasked with solving it happens to be a detective in hell... so there could be a few suspects along the way.
