I've posted that book here before, didn't think anyone else here every read him.

Its much better than the Blonde, its definitely a fun book with a wonderfully absurd plot. But not nearly as good as his first novel The Wheelman.

I really enjoyed Severance Package. It's the first thing I have read by Duane Swierczynski, but it won't be the last.

I'm interested in that as well, probably after I read Connelly's fiction. I'm still on Crazy For The Storm, which is pretty short but taking me a while to get through. It's not a bad book, just a little boring starting off. Not sure if anyone else read it, but the author's father seems like a complete loon to me.

Scratch that. Placed "Dexter By Design" on the backburner for now. A friend of mine gave me a hardcover Spiderman: Sinister Six graphic novel for Christmas, thought I'd go for that first.

I wish I was reading Connelly's books for the first time all over again. Enjoy the ride.

I'm on the wait list for John Dies at the End at the library -- only 1 copy in circulation in the state! Sounds really good.

Man, I was really lazy about reading in January. I've started John le Carre's A Small Town in Germany, but it's slow going so far.
