I won't be reading Harry's SPARE. The coverage of it has been so intense and widespread, I don't feel the need to. And now he's started to hint of even darker revelations to come in Book Two. (SPARED?) The publishers need him to earn out that massive multi-million advance for the two books.
Instead I'll be rereading Richard Osman's THE MAN WHO DIED TWICE, which is a little miracle of a book and deserving of all the praise it has received. Joyce, one of his creations, is a perfect character. You start to worry about all the characters, who are in their 70s. You want them all to live to be a hundred. But Osman is hinting one of them may be leaving us in a future book, possibly the next in series. I hope not.
