Bibliomantic Titles that lie? I guess this book did not save your life. Reminds me of one of her other ones, 'Music for Torching.' I kept listening for it, but, a ah, nothing.

karen i loved end of alice, but her others have not wowed me...

Bibliomantic 'End of Alice' is tremendous, but you're right, the others aren't. Some of her stories are alright, though.

Stuart I thought The Safety of Objects was amazing, and I thought Jack was pretty strong too. But what do I know?

karen i didn't read those two, buddy.

but greg says the new one is pretty good.

Stuart Don't you hate people who respond to two-year-old threads?

Anyway, I know you are not fond of short-story collections, but The Safety of Objects is pretty darn first-rate. And Jack was her first novel — almost a teen novel, in fact, written from the point of view of a 16-year-old boy. I think you'd like it.

karen i saw the movie.

because that's what i do - i see movies. i am not a reader.

Stuart I eat the cereal.

karen i read the reviews in entertainment weekly

message 10: by Greg (new)

Greg The new one I thought was very good. I'm currently reading a book that was on the top books of the year list for Entertainment Weekly, so you better not be saying anything bad about that fine magazine.

karen no way! they are the best at discussing lit'rachur

Alexandra I'm surprised you didn't like this one more

karen me, too! i have liked other books of hers so much better is the problem.
