I almost didn't read it. I saw it and thought, well, I'm sure the answers are the same as every other interview - he's scared of the dark, thinks people like his books so we feel better about our lives, his wife worked at a donut shop, all the stuff we big fans KNOW, but decided to read it anyway...and I was surprised by the stuff I'd never read before. Loved the part about Uncle Clayton and his thoughts on paranormal things

Betsy - the mistake I was talking about in that chapter...Julia's dog's name is Horace, but twice the book referred to him as Hector. At least in my copy!

Wow...didn't catch that. It's funny how many people read these books before they are published and yet still stuff like that gets through.

Finished WHITE OLEANDER...much better than the movie, although the writing got a little "flowery" at times for my taste. It's a very sad book, but I would recommend it. I found the selfish, narcissistic mother especially interesting as a character.

Got an audio of UR and listened to it last night...really enjoyed it. Makes me want an e-reader even more. Now on to SHUTTER ISLAND.

SHUTTER ISLAND is a must read for any mystery fans! I really liked it and recommend it...can't wait to see the movie!

I'm really mad now 'cause I know hubby had a copy of MYSTIC RIVER but I can't find it and I want to read more Lehane. Probably a victim of a recent purge...grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!

I put aside BLOOD MERIDIAN for a bit. You have to be in a really good place mentally to read it, IMO. I started THE HOLLOW MAN by Dan Simmons. Pretty good so far.
