Defending Jacob was actually hard for me to get into. A book about a father, DA, who is working the murder of a 14 year old boy when his own son becomes the prime suspect. Although it began slow and had a dull climax the ending I honestly did not see coming, which in turn, made the book worth reading. I'm a sucker for an unsuspected ending.

"some books are meant / to be read just like this / alone, with the evening, / a bowl of fruit ripening / waiting for the reader / to grow hungry, but / she won't, the book / will devour her, / and it / will soon / become / morning."
carl sagan - “Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
