Harry Dolan's second book is Very Bad Men and is very enjoyable.

Thanks for commenting!

CMG (Mac) | 5 comments Didn't realize Cutting for Stone was on this list from way back. I just finished it. It is long and parts are right out of medical journals but very good. Not what I'd call a "beach book" though.

The The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society is one of my favorites ever. Could be that I'd never heard of it when I checked it out so I had no expectations.

I finished Wild this summer. So guess I'm for the most part three years behind (except I did manage to read "The Art of Fielding", "The Book Thief" and "The Kite Runner" in a more timely fashion. I'll try and work my way through some of these other recommendations since they seem to be my cup of tea!
