A Visit from the Goon Squad By Jennifer Egan
Date Posted: 3/30/2012 | Go To Book Page

A technical, stylistic tour de force, every chapter written from a different point of view plus the cherry on the cake: a whole chapter written in PowerPoint. The virtuosity unfortunately takes away the ability of this novel to draw you into the story, you the reader feel left out and that's a pity.

Angels & Demons (Robert Langdon)
Date Posted: 3/30/2012 | Go To Book Page

Formulaic, repetitive and not very believable. A pity because I really enjoyed the Da Vinci Code.

Death on Facebook, Short Stories for the Digital Age
Date Posted: 3/30/2012 | Go To Book Page

Short stories written for those who are on the run - and  meant as a tasting of the kind of writing Claude does. Each story is inspired by a current event or observation of a major social issue typical of the digital age.

Fear of the Past: A Novel
Date Posted: 3/30/2012 | Go To Book Page

Okay, it's my own...but I like it! It's very experimental and for a long time I considered it my best book (an unusual mix of novel and play writing) Now I'm onto the next one, and of course that's the one I like best...

Knockout! A Passionate Police Romance

A fun read - no pretensions, just straight fun.

A disappointing book, not really a novel, no suspense, almost no action - way too much pseudo-philosophizing, with everything thrown in for good measure. IN one word: boring. A pity, because this is a great writer and it is very well written.
