I loved this story. It's different from King's usual horror themes.

I just ordered that book. It does sound very interesting. Right now I am reading Bait by Karen Robards.

The Gods of Gotham by Lyndsay Faye. Very good, a little slow in parts with a more fast paced ending, LOVED the historical story behind this.
Behind the Beautiful Forevers: Life, death, and hope in a Mumbai undercity by Katherine Boo . Excellent, learned so much about India's slums and the inquality between the haves and the have-nots.
How It All Began by Penelope Lively. Very enjoyable...Highly Recommend. I had previously read this author's Family Album, and loved that story, as well. She writes beautifully about family dynamics and the books are quick reads.
What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank by Nathan Englander.
Enjoyed only a couple of the stories (Camp Sundown, and the title story, What We Talk About When We Talk About Anne Frank ) in this selection of short stories. I have never been keen about short stories.
The Flight of Gemma Hardy by Margot Livesey. I am enjoying this story A LOT !
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey

I'm reading "The Curious Naturalist: Nature's Everyday Mysteries" by Sy Montgomery. It's wonderful if you like this type of thing, but it's hard to find. Published several years ago, I couldn't find a new copy for less than $175, and that's for a paperback. I also couldn't find it in any So. Cal. library, not even the gigantic one in downtown Los Angeles. I did find a used copy in very good condition via Amazon. It cost me $25 but it's well worth it.
I'm also about to begin "Everyday Grace" by Marianne Williamson.

I finished The Flight of Gemma Hardy and enjoyed it a lot. Some loose ends were never tied up, though, which is a bit annoying.
