Declan Burke's Digested Reads

Too busy to read this summer? What, not even the latest thriller? Why not take a look at Irish crime writer and mystery reviewer Declan Burke's dabbling in the area of digested reading? I'd seen a few of these kinds of things in the Guardian before, but Declan is no slouch at the form. Try here and here.

These are fun even if you haven't read the books. And you should be reading his blog anyway. Maybe we can encourage him to do a few more...


  1. They're just the thing for today's busy reader!!!
    Detectives Beyond Borders
    "Because Murder Is More Fun Away From Home"

  2. Well, I hope there's more than just you and me reading them on this continent, because they're great.

  3. I wonder if there's a book even Declan couldn't digest.

  4. Peter, I thought I'd suggested Finnegans Wake somewhere, but maybe not...

    Glenna, yes, the man definitely has a gift for mimicry.
