We talked about this for a while on the last podcast, but the whole thriller/literary hybrid thing is generally sure to be a let down. On top of that, this is another overhyped debut novel by a young and supposedly talented author. Nazaryan gives this coming-of-age thriller set during the Cold War a thoroughly tepid reception, so you probably don’t want to hold out hope on this book breaking the trend. But it does sounds promising all the same. This is a wait and see for me.
Eh, nothing else really caught my eye this week that seemed worth sharing as main entries. There is some little stuff though.
