Starting this for a research paper I have to do. It was on the list and I heard of how much a masterpiece it was so I was like if I'm going to do this paper it might as well be on a good book so here I go.

What would some of the people here who've read this book before say about it? Will it be worth it?

Still picking my way through this. Some of it is really challenging and flat out confusing but there are points where I just put the book down and laugh at how much sense it makes. Challenging but very rewarding book so far.

Last 4 I've read were parts 1-4 of The Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Gonna read the new Chuck Palhaniuk book next.

Plowed through all four Gladwell books on my last two vacations. I think Blink is by far the best one. I know everyone loves to suck Gladwell dick, but his writing is mostly ...meh. Blink is good however because it has a lot of useful information.

I started about 6 chapters of Haruki Murakami's 1Q84 but now that Michael Connellys' The Drop came out, I might read that first... got to read that Harry Bosch novel first..

I've been reading a whole bunch of Michael Connelly books after The Lincoln Lawyer hooked me.

The Overlook


Wasn't one of my favorites, though I do think it had the best twist. Didn't have me on the edge of the seat going page by page as the rest seem too. Harry Bosch is featured in this one.

Void Moon


No Bosch, no Haller led me to my first Connelly experience without the reoccurring characters. Was a pretty good one, though it seemed to lack the major climax most of the other books have had.

The Brass Verdict


The third book I've read featuring both Haller and Bosch, who hare half brothers and the second book in the Lincoln Lawyer series. I'd say this was the best one I've read so far by Connelly and am hoping that this is turned into a flick as well.
