Spoiling Other Books
I said, "The best book of my year is over. I might as well give up books and go to New Orleans and Chicago and Ireland and New York." Linda said she can't read Louise's books when it's hot and sunny. "She needs dark and cold." My response was, "This is a book that starts with November's first snowfall, and goes into a winter of the soul."
I've loved Louise's books since Still Life. I'm not always this crazy about them. There were several in the series that didn't excite me. But, A Great Reckoning isn't one of those.
I'll review it later, but it's a review I have to write carefully so I don't give away spoilers. I never read reviews of Penny's work until I've read the book, and already tonight I saw a summary that gave away too much. I'll be careful so I don't spoil it for anyone.
In the meantime, do you have an author who spoils other books for you? Who do you read, and then close the book, knowing you have to wait another year?
