Erik Larson Has A New Book Coming Out...

Post by SonjaMarie » Thu November 4th, 2010, 3:36 am

Talk about coincidence, I was just lamenting about Larson not having a new book out for a long time and today I found this:
"In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror, and an American Family in Hitler's Berlin" by Erik Larson (Hardcover - May 10, 2011)

I'm just not sure it's something I'm interested in, but we'll see.

Certainly has an intriguing title. Long, but intriguing.

Larsen's books generally make good reading. The WWII setting is not my favorite, though. I think by a certain point in my life, I had just read too many WWII novels, plus seen too many WWII movies, and I got saturated. I do want to read Marcus Zusak's The Book Thief one of these days, though.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info
