I love finding a book that I just cannot put down; I just have to keep reading to find out what happens, chanting “just one more chapter, just one more chapter”. What’s better than being sucked into another world so brilliantly that when you look up you’re surprised to find that you’re still in your own living room. LOVE ‘EM!
There are so many books that would fit this challenge so I have decided to go for one that I haven’t mentioned on my blog yet. Even that was difficult but I have finally gone for The Job by Douglas Kennedy. I was first introduced to Kennedy by a friend years ago with an insistance that I read The Big Picture (just as unputdownable, by the way) and after that I went on a little Kennedy bings and devoured about 5 books in one go by him. The Job really struck a chord with me though as it is set in the corporate world (which I work in – yes, anoyingly enough I do have a day job which is rather inconvenient to my reading-life….).
The Job is the story of a Salesperson who left the sticks to relocate to Manhattan, determined to be a success at any cost which leads him to make a decision that will alter the cause of his life and find him unable to get out. This book races along so fast, with so many twists that it truly was impossible to put down! Brilliant, just brilliant!
Ignore the naff cover – this book isn’t even about a woman and there’s certainly no romance in it – and pick up a copy of this book. Then read his other stuff (I have loved all his books that I’ve read and I still have about another 5 to read!) and let me know what you think.
Which books have you found unputdownable?
