The Idiot by Elif Batuman
Jameson’s first review of the year
it was amazing
I absolutely loved the main character in this book, Selin. Her inner and outer dialogues rang true in a way I haven’t experienced with many characters. Anxious, sly, and relatable. I also really enjoyed her encounters with Ivan, the fellow student she’s in love with.

The Idiot also has a cast of supporting and minor characters who are memorable and keenly observed, even those making a brief appearance.

Jameson’s last review of the year
really liked it
Engrossing mystery/thriller taking place for the most part in Franco's Spain. The plot surrounds the disappearance of a high-ranking member of the government and the (extremely) tangled web involving a multitude of people.

Our hero is Alicia, a sort of less mobile, pre-internet Lisbeth Salander. She works for a shadowy government investigative team and is teamed up with a more by-the-book, veteran cop to get to the bottom of this mystery. (Sounds
