Weekly Reading #14

My reading this week feels a little thin. I started The Burglary which I’ll review next week and although it’s a good read and an important one, it’s slow going.

I finished John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Let Me In. I still don’t quite get why he’s compared to Stephen King. King comes in loudly, stomping across the stage with odd things and shadows billowing behind him. Lindqvist slides in, unnoticed until he’s next to you when you turn. Let Me In has been the best of his that I’ve read. A vampire tale that no one should miss.  I love that the Swedish vampires tend to kill themselves rather than live when it means taking lives. Here in the US our vampires seem to have no such qualms. Is it a cultural way of looking at life I wonder?

I also read The Reluctant Hero by Michael Dobbs . It’s good but a little slower than I like. Not that there wasn’t plenty of action but the writing style is slower to engross and after a book like Let Me In, I needed something more powerful. It is a very good read though.
