And maybe other readers have read them and can tell you what they thought.
I'm curious about Graham Greene's Brighton Rock, I've heard its about gang warfare and features a fight with a cut throat razor.
I haven't read that one, Lark, so I can't help you there.
I've been meaning to read Günter Grass' The Tin Drum, but I read My Century a couple of years back and wasn't really into it.
Also, has anyone read Stieg Larsson's Millenium Trilogy? Everyone's talking about it, so I'd like to know if it's worth a read.
Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.
