    Hard for me to find a book I'm really interested in anymore, but this one is holding my attention so far.

    where we see imaginary greatness in our fall.

    Panic by Jeff Abbott.

    It's not so much a whodunnit as a whydunnit.

    The opening few chapters have held my interest sufficiently to continue reading. I have picked up a couple of partial clues as to the why, but they may be red herrings. So I need to read more in order to find out.
    This isn't the sort of genre that would normally appeal to me, so the author has done very well to keep me interested. I was drawn to it by the blurb on the back cover (and the low price as I picked it up in a charity shop).

    Insurgent by Veronica Roth, reference

    All The Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr

    There is no doubt in this reader's mind
    why this novel was received and acknowledged
    as it was.

    After looking at wiki,
    "Quality over quantity"
    seems to apply.

    Highly recommended.
    Especially Young Adult.
    Authors looking for more realistic young female protagonists:
    Here it is, imho.

    Wondering why your finding it difficult to find another read...

    I'm a jaded old reader that's not into the escapist thing

    While I've got your attention Esc, there's a couple things I've been meaning to mention to you.

    Some time back there was a "discussion" about what a "classic" is. Being I prefer books that ask the reader to use their mind, the definition I subscribe to is:
    “A classic is a book that has never finished saying what it has to say.” ― Italo Calvino

    Also, I watched a YouTube video of a spray paint artist doing a Aurora Borealis scene. I found it fascinating and thought you might also.
