I need some summer reading material, and as I have enough "heavy" stuff -non fictional as well as fictional- on my shelf still waiting to be red, that's not what I am asking for right now. I am, so to say, looking something more chocolate of the literary world than healthy wholefood. If you know what I mean. With this weather and my current chronical lack of sleep, I don't want to use my brain for anything but uni right now... (Limited resources, you see. ) Not at 9 pm, in any case. I think I'll give some of the authors a try that got their own threads in this section of the boards, but I am open for more recommendations. I am more a fan of a complicated, yet logical criminal plot than for shoot out action, I like characters with some more layers than those of their clothings which they consequentially get rid of after a few chapters anyway. I like James Ellroy more than Patricia Cornwell - make of that what you want and transfer it, preferably but not necessarily, into a dark fantasy setting. Am I making any sense at all? If not, I blame the weather.
