Bel Canto (Ann Patchett)
2002: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett. "A strange, terrific, spellcasting story" ("San Francisco Chronicle"), "Bel Canto" engenders in the reader the very passion for art and the language of music that its characters discover.
"Bel Canto" – by Ann Patchett I didn't particularly like the writing style, i.e. it cut my reading speed by a third (from 30 down to 20 pg/hr), but in the end, the book was excellent. Recommended!

The Book Design Review
NADIA: There are a number of factors that make this book cover design ineffective, mainly associated with the type. It seems that there are too many type faces being used and this makes it incredibly confusing. On top of that, the colours of the type don't go well together. The size of the type is another element. The size is so big that it takes up more than half of the book cover and pretty much distracts the viewer from the background image.

A visionary scientist creates a revolutionary form of artificial intelligence that predicts movements in the financial markets with uncanny accuracy. His hedge fund, based in Geneva, makes billions. But after an intruder breaks into his home, he has to try to discover who is trying to destroy him.
It's quite ok. I enjoyed reading it but didn't like the ending which seems a bit crude. Robert Harris: Fear Index

The Hunt for Martin Luther King’s Assassin: Hampton Sides’ Hellhound on His Trail

The House of Mirth, Edith Wharton. Amazing book, beautiful writing and imagery. Also, I've never felt someone else so understood the anxiety that leads to insomnia like this. However, I did bawl like a baby at the end.
Cheryl recommends Edith Wharton: A Biography by Hermione Lee
Worth Reading, Hermione Lee, Superb Reexamin, International Acclaim, Book Worth, Wharton Vintage, Vintage Wardrobe, Edith Wharton, Willa Cather
From the award-winning biographer of Virginia Woolf and Willa Cather comes a brilliant, long-awaited reexamination of an iconic American woman of letters. Lucid and acute . . . with a thoroughness no other Wharton biography has yet achieved--
A superb reexamination that reveals an Edith Wharton who was as tough, complex, and startlingly modern as her fiction.
