Becky OK... I'll bite... Why not?


message 3: by Debra (new)

Debra I've read Memory of Running way back when it first came out and really enjoyed it. I'll vote, but I'll join in on the group read with the majority vote. Am curious as to why NOT Case Histories, Dustin?

John Reeves Sorry, wouldn't have time to read any of them right now.

Kim Eagerly awaiting the results!! :)

Dustin Well, I read Case Histories a few years ago, and I just think it's terrible. If not for the fact that I had to read it for a Mystery as Literature course, I doubt I would have finished it.
Atkinson's writing is poor, and there are several scenes that simply seem contrived, IMO.
To make things worse, she's since then written at least one sequel!
