Review: Journey Under the Midnight Sun by Keigo Higashino

This is the fourth book of the author I have read. While I do rank his earlier works above this book (Devotion of Suspect X > Salvation of a Saint > Malice > Journey Under the Midnight Sun), I enjoyed reading Journey Under the Midnight Sun. This is a mystery that spans over 20 years and traces the journey of the protagonists and some recurring characters. It keeps you hooked as the puzzle grows in complexity. The language is, as always, simple; the writing to the point.
While it does seem like a door-stopper at 544 pages, it is fast-paced and is a quick read, just like how a good thriller should be.

Dubliners..not a book review

Finally finished reading James Joyce’s Dubliners, a collection of 15 short-stories. I had been reading it for a couple of years. That for me is the problem with short-stories. I take liberties with them. I read one, then abandon the book and come back to it much later. I took less time reading Gone with the Wind!
So I shall not say how much I liked Dubliners. I remember liking a few stories; I immensely liked the last one (“The Dead”).
