The Nerd

I've heard some people suggesting the third part of the Larsson trilogy is not as good as the earlier ones. There are doubts, but which book can give me insurance it won't disappoint me. The reputation of the author (his death has increased my curiosity) is huge, so may be the book would be worth the money. By the way, has anybody bought the book from http://www.uread.com/book/women-t-coraghess-boyle/9780143116479? I have heard they are offering the highest discount among the bookstores. Let me know if it is correct.

I wonder what T.C. Boyle said about the Times' Michiko Kakutani that ticked her off enough to pan "The Women" ... his other reviews have been very laudatory. Can anyone enlighten?

I love Boyle's works, especially the ones about Southern California. ("Tortilla Curtain" is a heart-breaking look at a slice of life few middle- or upper-class Americans can ever imagine.) If you have a chance to go to one of his readings, do so!

My friend is a house builder and he says that Wright's buildings were poorly constructed. Has that been your experience?

Curious to know how T.C. Boyle's process in writing this historical novel ("The Women") differs, if at all, from his process twenty-some years ago in writing another one ("World's End")
