November reading list

Random cat photo as I didn't take any book photos.
Bob in the forefront and Bunny in the background.
Not read yet:
Driving blind by Ray Bradbury. 
Still in the unread pile by my bed...

Partly read:
The smiling man by Henning Mankell.
Still reading it. Can't seem to get reading it again...

Cristallisation secrète (Secret crystalization) by Yoko Ogawa. 
I won't be finishing this one for now. Too depressing. It is set in a dystopian universe where things start disappearing, not physically but from the mind of people. So there are still birds, people can see there are birds but they ignore them, don't know what they are and they evoke nothing to them. 

The hand by Henning Mankell. 
A Wallander story. Fast read, staright to the point, very nice. Highly recommended. I like this shorter format better than the regular one.
Après (After) by Stéphane Allix. 
His worst book. Just a page filler with nothing new and not very interesting filler at that either. I zapped through it.
The Dyatlov Mystery by Anna Matveeva.
An odd book. A mix of fiction and a real mystery. The Dyatlov mystery is a real event. 9 people disappearing  while on a winter hike whose bodies were found in odd circumstances.
Though the mystery part is interesting, the pseudo/fictive investigation is not. Plus it's mixed with the investigator's love stories...bleeeeeh. 

That thing by Docteur JJ Charbonier 
The interesting point of view of a doctor on NDE's (near death experiences, or as he prefers calling them "temporary death exeperiences").

Nice reading list. I haven't read them, but I will put them on my list too. Now I am reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner.

Oh boy, every time I come to your reading lists I realize I haven't taken the time to read much...
Thanks for sharing, though!
