When I’m disappointed in a current read (Old School) I scan my book shelves like some rabid dog. My god there are so many damn good books. I just pulled Affliction off the shelf, ruffled the pages, scanned a few lines, and just basically breathed it right in. Talk about incredible prose and a story that feels like you’re chasing a freight train toward certain disaster. Man, I love this book.
Alas, I need to read (So I will. I must.) our book club pick: The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but it better be hoppin’ great or else ….. Affliction could come a calling.
