Re: What are you reading?

Finished the audiobook version of NOS4R2 by Joe Hill yesterday. The author has his dad's talent for brevity and the book arguably requests a little too much suspension of disbelief as regards its basic premise, but it's an engaging narrative and features a well fleshed-out villain in Charlie Manx. Geek references abound, indicating in no uncertain terms that Hill is "one of us". Kate Mulgrew does justice to the characters, adding a ton of pathos and giving each a distinctive voice (not to mention giving this reader a mini-flashback every time she says "coffee").
