    I read _The Observations_ and it was, um, interesting. Not sure what all the hype was about though. I finished it and liked it well enough, but it didn’t knock my socks off. :)

    Yea, that’s a helpful review. I know if you’ve read it, you’ll do better. It’s the only book on that list that I’ve heard of, although I know who Anne Tyler is.
