Straight through

There I sat in the screen house and didn't get up until the book was read from cover to cover. That takes care of the junk speed-read of the summer: The Ruins, by Scott Smith. I did read A Simple Plan and we saw the movie, too. At least it was borrowed from the library. Now it's out of my system. It's not as good as I remember Simple Plan to be, but it does have narrative propulsion and it was an afternoon's cheap escape. It was returned right away and probably spent no more than seconds on the "new books" shelf before being borrowed agai.
