Quarantine is prime reading time, and while I’ve been reading a smattering of books, I haven’t thought to post much about them here. Most recently, I finished The Passenger by Lisa Lutz. The marketing of the book – and I’m just going to roll with it – has pegged it as a Gone Girl-type novel. There are some similarities, among them a female protagonist on the run with a dark past.
I think the storytelling was a little spotty at times, and it kind of glossed over some items that should have been explained. But there are enough twists and turns throughout to keep things interesting. It’s kind of an easy-peasy summer beach read type of thing, but you need those once in a while.
I’ve also been juggling The Late Shift, which tells the story of the transition from Johnny Carson to Jay Leno, including the rivalry with David Letterman.
