Not a Self-Help Guide

Advantages: Short, interesting novel
Disadvantages: Not as goog as it can be,

I would not normally pick up a book with this title, it makes it sound a bit chick-lit-y, but in fact, if I was forced to pigeon-hole this book into a genre, I would go for mystery. It was actually a book club choice, so I bought it without really reading ...

Advantages: good plot, Hannibal Lector takes centre stage
Disadvantages: too much background info, bad ending
