Crime Read Recommendations

There was a fab list of recommended crime novels in The Guardian so I thought I’d share it with you. I’d love to provide a personal comment on each of them but that would require me to either have read them all or just to make up something to pretend. Neither of these events has or will occurred.

Besides. the journalists at the newspaper have already gone to the bother of writing reviews and I’m guessing their word has a stronger sway than mine. They are professional reviewers and I am not. All I could offer is a subjective perspective based on my own beliefs and foibles.

Of course, this entire entry could be an underhand way for me to make an implicit comment about reviewing in general and the hermeneutic relationship between reader and text. You decide. And, yes, I am very aware of the deconstructivist irony of that sentence.
