I Don't Often Read Novels But This One I Loved
I mostly read science -- books, papers -- but when we were going to Paris the last time, I needed a book and Gregg picked one out for me in the airport. (Gregg was the late Elmore Leonard's researcher of 30-plus years, and has a way with knowing what to read.)
The book is The Book Thief, and I loved it. It's supposed to be YA fiction but sure doesn't read like it.
I just saw they've made it into a movie. I'll see that but I highly recommend the book.
