What We’re Reading This Week

Who will Ben fight over The Bone Clocks’ Man Booker snub? Sutterfield wonders.


  Space Case by Stuart Gibbs

Space Case is the story of a boy who is among the first people to live on a colony on the moon. It turns out that moon living is not all it’s cracked up to be. The food is horrible, there’s only one bathroom for everyone, none of the buildings have windows. When the top scientist at the colony turns up dead, everyone but the boy thinks he’s been murdered. It’s turning into a really good mystery, plus a funny story about the realities of living on the moon.”


Great North Road by Peter F. Hamilton

“This is a high science fiction murder mystery about a clone who is murdered. The police department is looking for the killer, but it gets very bureaucratic very quickly because the clone isn’t supposed to exist. Right now, I’m getting to the part where everything that seems like a perfect world is not what it appears to be.”


Furious Cool: Richard Pryor and the World that Made Him by David & Joe Henry

“David and Joe Henry originally made a movie about Richard Pryor, and decided to use the info they had to write this book. I’m only halfway through the book, but the most striking part so far is the often-told story of Pryor growing up in his grandmother’s brothel, cleaning rooms and such. If you grow up seeing life’s craziness, you’re not going to be afraid to stand on stage and tell the truth. I grew up loving his stand-up, and it’s been interesting to look into his life.”


The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell

“So much has already been said about The Bone Clocks. What else is there? It lives up to all the things being said. I’m captivated. I wonder who Ben is going to fight, since it didn’t get nominated for the Man Booker Prize?”


The House of Silk by Anthony Horowitz

“This Sherlock Holmes adventure is by the guy who does Foyle’s War and the Alex Rider series.  It’s reallly good. It reads like a Doyle novel.”
