I finished the Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time (pretty fun little read) and I needed something to draw my thoughts away from the depressing alley to which it has been prone the last few days.
I picked up Falling Leaves by Adeline Yen Mah.
It is riveting. And revolting. I'm only 1/4 of the way in but so far parts have made me so upset I felt sick to my stomach. Any book that draws me in enough to elicit a physical reaction is very well written.
I suggest it to anyone who wants a really great, modern read.
