Kane and Abel, The Bride Stripped Bare, Prey

Okay I was a bit late in updating this so I’ll just give micro-reviews for three books I read last week. Instead of going for the completely new I opted for some oldies that are not quite cult classics.

Kane and Abel Book Cover

Kane and Abel by Jeffrey Archer: This was an exhilarating read from start to finish. The complicated tangle of love, lies and deceit culminates in tragedy. When you discover the truth, the ending is utterly heartbreaking even if predictable.

The Bride Stripped Bare

The Bride Stripped Bare by Anonymous. (or Nikki Gemmell if you want to be pedantic about it). This particular tale of  love, lust and adultery stupefies with its confounding and mysterious finale.

Prey

Prey by Michael Crichton. I am usually not a fan of science fiction but this was written in an enticing  way with the house-husband business and supermarket nappy discussions paralelling the looming threat of an evolving nano-virus so it works well as a futuristic thriller.
