27. Beat the Reaper by Josh Bazell

This is trash, not literature. Airplane reading. I read a thread online about recommended books like this, but the slant was towards horror books, and I am pretty squeamish, so most of those I can't read. But, I started this one, and then put it down.

So, last Sunday I saw it remaindered at Barnes and Noble, and picked it up for $5.98. I have barreled through its 300 pages. I should mention that there are some plot flaws that occasionally threw me out of the book, and a page or two of descriptions that I skimmed because of my aforementioned squeamishness, but otherwise this was hard to put down. I hesitate to describe the plot; I don't want to give anything away. But this would be a great thing to pick up if you are stuck in an airport or on a long flight.

One suggestion: Don't decide if you like it or not until you have completed all of the first two chapters. I didn't the first time, which is why I put it down.
