It's not been a great week for book choices. These two were by no means bad, but firmly in the 3 out of 5 category. The Dry is a thriller set in Austrailia which has a couple of twists but was a bit clunky in terms of dialogue and character. I may have been spoiled by Elmore Leonard's writing though. And One Hundred Days of Happiness, is centered around Lucio and his family and the 100days he has left when diagnoised with terminal cancer, or as he calls it, his friend fritz. Its set in Italy, is much less melancholic than expected but maybe not quite as funny as the author intended. Again its not bad, but its just okay. It'll also make you want donuts and pasta. And it does contain a fair bit of interesting little facts, so maybe more of a 7 out of 10.
