Theft: A Love Story - Peter Carey Swan Song - Robert R. McCammon The King Must Die - Mary Renault

THE BEST BOOK I'VE READ THIS MONTH

 

I've only read three books this month, which are Theft by Peter Carey, Swan Song by Robert McCammon, and The King Must Die by Mary Renault.

 

I didn't get on with Theft at all. The characters were all pretty disagreeable and I ended up just not caring what happened to them. 

 

Swan Song is a post-apocalyptic novel. Yes, it's similar to The Stand, but it's still a great read, and unlike Theft, I actually cared about the characters and their struggles. 

 

The King Must Die is an old favourite. It's a re-telling of the Geek myth about Theseus and the Minotaur. And I'm a sucker for myths and legends which is why I've read this one quite a few times. 

 

As as for which one was the best... Well it wasn't Theft, that's for sure.
