    Bad Twin is the highly-anticipated new novel by acclaimed mystery writer Gary Troup. Bad Twin was delivered to the publisher just days before Troup boarded Oceanic Flight 815, which was lost in flight from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles in September 2004. He remains missing and is presumed dead.

    "Not so good"
    Overall

    Like some of the other reviewers, I picked this up because I am an avid fan of LOST, the LOST Experience, etc. I wanted to find out what the Hanso Foundation found so upsetting about this book, as their advertisements indicated that the book spread lies about the nature of the Foundation. Maybe all will be made clear on the show itself, but this book offers NO such revelations. Hanso is mentioned twice throughout the story - once at the very beginning and once at the very end. It really has NOTHING to do with the plot line (such as it is). You get the feeling it was added in to make a BAD book marketable. I might have been OK with being suckered into this book had it at least been well written, but it is not. The detective in the story tediously journeys from one location to the next, each time being told where he should go next and who to talk to there. He makes no deduction, but simply follows the mind-numbingly dull instructions of each character he encounters. Don't waste your time with this one...

  • Brother Odd: An Odd Thomas Novel

    No one could have imagined Odd Thomas ever leaving the quirky comfort of Pico Mundo. Yet leave it he has, for a monastery. But Odd has a knack for finding trouble no matter where he goes, and a killer is stalking the ancient holy halls. Odd is about to meet an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered.

    "Disappointing Third in the Series"
    Overall

    I read the first two books in the Odd Thomas series - I really enjoyed the first one, but wasn't so much in love with the second. I continued on to this third entry mainly on the merit of the first book and my enjoyment of some of Dean Koontz's previous works. I am partway through the second half of this book and I don't think I'm going to finish it at this point. I felt really preached to by this book, like the author allowed his personal points of view on morality and faith to get in the way of good storytelling. I'm sure people of faith will counter that having a point of view in these areas makes for good storytelling itself but I signed up for a ghost story, not a pompous finger-wagging. It makes me reconsider whether I will read his other works in the future...

  • A Wolf at the Table: A Memoir of My Father

    A Wolf at the Table is the story of Augusten's relationship with his father, John Robison, Sr., a man only briefly touched upon in Running With Scissors. Told with shocking honesty and penetrating insight, A Wolf at the Table is more than the companion volume to Running with Scissors - it's a story of stunning psychological cruelty and the redemptive power of hope.

    James Gordon says: "Embarrassingly Bad"
    "Pass On This One"
    Overall

    I have read all of Augusten's previous books and enjoyed them pretty much throughout, but I just can't get into this one at all. I'm sure the experiences he describes must have been difficult for him, but I couldn't bring myself to care enough to keep going. Totally failed to capture my interest.
