The good, the bad and the ugly book!

No, I haven’t read The Good, the Bad and the Ugly by Joe Millard, but the title pops into my head when I’m thinking about the past 3 books on my bookshelf.

The good!

Grønt støv by Sara Blaedel ♥ ♥ ♥

This book is the 1st in the Louise Rick series.

I don’t think I’ve ever read a book, or watched a movie, without having the slightest clue who the murder or murderers could be. I have now! – and I must say that the ending was very shocking to me.

Another thing that makes this book different is the obvious research behind it. One would think that the author is a detective spending a lot of time with a coroner! It really amazed me, and the author managed to teach me things in an interesting – and never boring – way.

Grønt Støv has been published in Germany with the title Grüner Schnee. Visit Sara Blaedels website or read more at my page of books set in Denmark where you can see the Louise Rick series listed in chronologial order.

The bad!

Life of Pi by Yann Martel

To put it short; I gave up on this book. As a matter of fact, I believe it’s the first time I’ve given up trying to read a book. I’m not saying, I won’t give it a try again some day, but right now it just didn’t catch me.

The ugly!

Less than Zero by Bret Easton Ellis 

This book reminded me so much of The Catcher in the Rye, which I didn’t like either. While reading the book, I kept thinking “something’s gotta happen soon”, but no, the book was boring and stupid from page 1-179.

Happy Sunday to all of you 🙂
