Book reviews for February 2016

Sand (Sand, #1-5) by Hugh Howey

Sand (Sand, #1-5) by Hugh Howey

4/5

Very good, I was rather hoping Howey was a one hit wonder but now I see that I'm going to have to read the whole cannon.

 

Cockroaches (Harry Hole, #2) by Jo Nesbø

Cockroaches (Harry Hole, #2) by Jo Nesbø

4/5

Finally the #2 Hole has been translated. It's a good one. Sad because it's saying goodbye all over again.

 

The Sellout by Paul Beatty

The Sellout by Paul Beatty

4/5

Starts with a black guy called Me in the Supreme Court for slavery and gets progressively more weird and funny from there. Excellent.

 

Fortune Smiles by Adam Johnson

Fortune Smiles by Adam Johnson

5/5

Stonking collection of perfect short stories. After I finished each one I was gutted that it wasn't turned into a whole book.
