Detroit by Charlie LeDuff

Detroit: An American Autopsy by [LeDuff, Charlie]

Fascinating, horrifying, depressing, and vulgar.

Lille de Jong by Janet Benton

So in many ways, this was excellent. But I felt that it was marred by several improbably coincidences used to move the plot along.

The Radium Girls by Kate Moore

Fascinating. A great story and interesting slice of history.

Skitter by Ezekiel Boone

I'm embarrassed by how much I liked this: not only is it a spider apocalypse, but it is also clearly a "middle in a trilogy" where the ball barely gets moved down the court. But, yet, I loved it.

Devoured by Sophie Egan

This was largely shallow and derivative, but it had a few interesting moments.

The Breaker Boys by Pat Hughes

Tru and I read this for his book group. The book isn't particularly excellent in terms of writing style, but the history is interesting and well-presented.
