Hi, again, Bookworm! Came across one you might like: it's "The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner". This is an old book from 1824, very much ahead of its time in literary devices. Considered one of Scotland's greatest novels, a story of murder and the devil and quite creepy. Give it a shot and tell me what you think. Author is James Hogg.
Thanks! And don't worry. You'll like The Alienist just fine. It's kinda CSI: 1900. I really enjoyed it. I've been reading The Monsters of Templeton on and off (mainly off) for months now. It's an okay story, but it hasn't really sucked me in yet. That's probably my fault, though. If I would just sit down and really spend a day getting into it, I'd probably like it fine.
If you have enjoyed both THUNDERSTRUCK & DEVIL IN THE WHITE CITY, you should read Erik Larson's other book ISAAC'S STORM (about the hurricane that destroyed Galveston and really changed weather forecasting in this country).
Larson's biographies read like novels and I look forward to whatever he is working on currently.

HI, there!! I see you like Barbara Ehrenreich (Nickeled and Dimed in America)...her later books are quite funny and worth reading....she answers her own emails and will often post emails from readers on her website. Very sharp lady, background in sciences too. Mostly I like non-fiction, but science fiction is a favorite too. Really getting in to "green" stuff. You might like "Living with Ed" just for the humor. Keep reading!!
