Guys, "Before the Fall" is a great read. That Noah Hawley guy kinda knows how to write.

First of the Jack Reacher novels I've read and thankfully I don't see Tommy Cruiser in my head while reading it

Reading the first book by Patrick deWitt (Sisters Brothers, Undermajordomo Minor) and this shit is bleak. I mean like I can only read about 4-5 pages at a time before I just need to take a break. Holy crap. It's like he was purging everything bad so he could write those other two books.

basic gist: a man is sent to the moon to covertly root out a potential spy leaking information to the federation, a conglomerate of human populated non-earth planets, as political tensions between earth and the federation rise.

i've been picking up old printings of arthur c. clarke books and slowly working my way through them. this book was a fairly easy read, with the plot acting more as the background for clarke to place his visions of moon life and activity on. it's not a must-read by any means, but worth the few hours of time if you're in to clarke/old sci-fi.

I enjoyed this novella, but I wish King had taken the time to write a full novel. It takes long jumps in Gwendy's life, a year at a time, then even longer. King's normal style would have been to get deep into that. There were two characters who fell apart, and it would have been cool for King to follow that destruction.

Please tell me more. How many pages? What's the overall breakdown of feeling that is % King / % Chizmar? I am a diehard King fan, but go through his stuff in spurts...

Hold Still by Sally Mann is just outstanding. I need to read more non-fiction.

175 page. I'd say 40% King.

Catching the Big Fish by David Lynch is amazing. I might start carrying it around with me all the time, everywhere I go. Treat like my Bible.

Great, right? You can just pick it up and put it down whenever. Illuminating read.
