The Institute | Stephen King

Pickpick

I haven‘t really read King since I was a teen except for 11/22/63 when it came out. The Institute is King big and manipulative in really great ways. Fun, creepy, timely, with a moral of course. And King loves and gets kids.

The Boy in the Black Suit | Jason Reynolds

Love and death with two Brooklyn teens...sweet and real. Reality woven in effortlessly (it seems) and colorful characters ... young adult of course but these can ring true and clear as this book does.

Exhalation: Stories | Ted Chiang

Time,artificial intelligence, reality and humanity...mind-bending and sometimes scary stories that ring true. The stories build upon one another to pose big questions and present big challenges. Clever, observant, sometimes light, often dark...

Asymmetry | Lisa Halliday

Juxtaposed stories of a younger woman‘s relationship with an older writer (loosely based on the author‘s relationship with Philip Roth) and a young man detained at the airport in London and his life in the US and Iraq. Insightful and subtly moving, the juxtaposition eventually provocative.

I was enlightened about trees (and I did not think I was unenlightened to begin) and grew to know and admire the characters. Big and American and ultimately powerful...

The Silent Patient | Alex Michaelides

Twisty twisty with classic red herrings...the two narrators enhance the plot in a clever and interesting way...he is a screenwriter and you will see that in a good way here...fun.
