Currently reading Brother Odd by Dean Koontz.  Frustrating in places, but the story keeps me reading because I have to find out what happens in the end.

It also means I may have to go back and read Odd Thomas again.  ;)

good choice Yelnick, Simenon tells a good story. Hoping to retrace Maigret's steps next year, though due to a new addition to the family arriving this october,  might postpone it.

Huh. That's a bit... odd.  ;D

I'm currently reading The Troll Mirror (rought translation of the title) by Tom Egeland. Annoyingly, he's one of my favorite authors, and you guys have probably never even heard of him.  ::)

"Jailbird"

by Kurt Vonnegut.

I read the prologue a while back, after first picking up the book at the  Koninginnedag street market for one euro. Now that I've completed the Simenon book, this morning is a good time to get into some Vonnegut.

The Hanging Shed by Gordon Ferris. A thriller set in Glasgow just after the end of World War II. Highly recommended.

I recently finished Brother Odd by Dean Koontz. It had been so many years since I read Odd Thomas (same MC) that I had to get my hard used copy out and read it again.  So glad I did - it was nice revisiting the younger Odd.  ;)
