novel novels

I love a good thriller.   Finding two that I wasn't able to unravel immediately makes these two books must reads.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn is the book I've seen on every summer reading list. When I read the summary on Amazon, it sounded like every other thriller I've read. Regardless, I decided to give it a try.  It was fantastic. The writing is sharp and witty.  The pace is fast and there's a fantastic twist.  You'll have a hard time putting it down.

The Snowman by Jo Nesbo is one of the best Inspector Harry Hole novels written. I enjoy a good Norwegian crime novel and this series fits the bill.  Harry Hole is a wonderfully flawed character who always does good but has to overcome his demons on a regular basis.  The mysteries he unravels are complex and you're never sure who's the villian.  For me, that makes any Jo Nesbo book interesting.
