I took advantage of a back injury to spend a few days catching on on my reading. I was very disappointed.
I’m not in the business of slating other writers, especially when they’re much better writers than me, so I’m not going to name them, but two of my favourite authors have just released books. The first was disappointing, which is very disappointing, because up until now he’s been mostly brilliant. The second was bordering on unreadable. After ten chapters I still didn’t have any idea of what was going on.
So I deleted those and went to a simple, high-concept thriller by a quality writer of simple high-concept thrillers.
And that now makes three books I’ve deleted from my kindle this week.
