Stephen King has shared with Entertainment Weekly
his ten favorite books of 2008. In the Entertainment Weekly
magazine King's list is probably all nicely laid out on one page but online EW
has annoyingly seperated into ten parts as the online version of magazines so often do. You can find it here
. Some of King's picks include Kate Atkinson's When Will There Be Good News?
, Stieg Larsson's The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
and The Good Guy
by Dean Koontz. King's also reading all of Robert Goddard's mystery/suspense novels.
I discovered Goddard, a British mystery/suspense novelist, last year, almost by accident. In Pale Battalions, his second novel, was the first book I read on my new Kindle. Since then I've read eight more and have about seven to go. I'll parcel them out, because they're too good to gulp. There are missing heirs, stolen fortunes, mistaken identities, raffish con men, hot sex, and cold-blooded murder.
Stephen King also says that The Garden of Last Days
by Andre Dubus III is "terrifying, unputdownable, and the best novel so far about 9/11."
