I purchased and read Connolly's The Book of Lost Things first, and though I had rather high expectations for his debut novel, despite the difference in genre, I was not at all disappointed. While the mystery was not impossible to figure out, the tension and suspense remained throughout the novel, so that I was curious to see how it all played out.
The book (obviously) was vastly different, but still highly enjoyable. The writing was strong, and the book was utterly absorbing, nearly impossible to put down. I can't believe how quickly Connolly has jumped into being one of my favorite authors, and definitely my best discovery of 2008. All in all, I loved reading this book.
