1. Nemesis - Jo Nesbo
2. The Sisters Brothers - Patrick DeWitt
1. Nemesis - Jo Nesbo (March'11, Mary)
A superb novel. Intricate, truly gripping plot...elegant simplicity. Reads incredibly nimbly ... This tale of revenge - with the US bombing of Afghanistan pounding in the grim background - has twists galore, and enough humanity in it to keep it grounded. Nemesis is a crime novel by Norwegian writer Jo Nesbø, the fourth in the Harry Hole series. This time there's a bank robbery in Oslo, but Harry also has to deal with two females that are important to him, while trying to stay away from the alcohol that he loves so dearly.
2. The Sisters Brothers - Patrick DeWitt (Jun'12, Des Martin)
The Sisters Brothers (2011) is a historical novel by Canadian-born author Patrick deWitt. The darkly comic, Western-inspired story takes place in Oregon and California in 1851. The central characters are Eli Sisters (the narrator) and his brother Charlie Sisters, who are both murderers for hire. The series of adventures depicted resemble the narrative form of a picaresque novel, and the chapters are brief and occasionally disjointed, sometimes reading like a film treatment. The Sisters brothers are hired by the Commodore to travel from Oregon City to San Francisco to murder Hermann Warm, a prospector, who is described to them as a "thief." However, when they ultimately encounter Warm, they discover an entirely different situation.
