Emily St. John Mandel has to be the most underrated writing working in fiction today. Holy shit. How come no one is talking about her? She's fucking amazing.

But we're talking about her right now.

Two people on a defunct, unofficial, Pearl Jam message board mentioning that her name has been mentioned on said message board is so far less than she deserves.

Say what you will about this little corner of the internet, but it's been my experience that you guys often have a finger on the pulse of the tastemakers out there. Not even joking.

Maybe. But I'm never one of those guys.

Gonna give this a whirl, in my new pattern of re-reading a book and then reading a new one:

Also, Nanowrimo is coming up and I'm getting the itch.

Has anyone read the Harry Hole series by Jo Nesbø? Do you have to read them in order? I kinda want to skip right to the Snowman but I don't want to be lost.

I read a synopsis of that book and it made it sound like a Marvel movie - have you read the previous books? oh well! and you better stick around because there's shit going down that's not answered here.

I liked it. I feel like I need to read it again knowing the whole conceit to get the full effect. Like most Saunders stuff, there were some brutal passages (as in, incredibly emotionally effecting).

I rarely find myself rereading all that often, but I'm going back through this trilogy in advance of a new trilogy being released. It's still probably my favorite series of books, but I've only been through all three one time.
