Two reviews I've already entered for September: It All Falls Down and The Lost Ones, are thrillers by Vancouver author, Sheena Kamil.
|The Lost Ones|
It All Falls Down
I'll be looking for other Canadian authors so I can fulfill the 13-book requirement! Though I'm assured there is no penalty if I don't reach the goal!
A new American book arrived for review, thanks to Wiley Sachek.
Genre: legal thriller, featuring "Second-string linebacker turned disillusioned defense attorney Jake Lassiter ."
My husband has co-opted this one for the time being and seems to be enjoying it!
A Japanese book I recently finished was
|Convenience Store Woman|
The novel covers aspects of contemporary culture in Japan, what society dictates that young women should aspire to and how they should live.
Keiko breaks the mold, finds a niche as a convenience store worker, but after 18 years, her family and friends and even her co-workers think she should move on, find a husband, start a family, etc. But Keiko is only comfortable in her convenience store world.
Revealing and enigmatic for Western readers, no doubt, but it's easy to side with Keiko, who chooses her niche, returns to what suits her. This book was a lucky library find.
