Stephen King's Summer Reading Suggestions

Looking for something good to read this summer? Here are Stephen King’s suggestions:

Little Dorrit, Charles Dickens (King says this novel “explains the whole Bernard Madoff mess”)

Shatter, Michael Robotham (suspense)

Quicksilver, Neal Stephenson (pirates!)

The Tourist, Olen Steinhauer (spies)

Drood, Dan Simmons (tangentially related to Dickens and very, very long)

Dog On It, Spencer Quinn ("canine noir," explains King)

Handle With Care, Jodi Picoult (legal/medical thriller)

I don't know. I'm pretty sure I'll read the Picoult. She's already got me hooked. And I love Dickens but have never read Little Dorrit. King's Madoff claim has made me curious, so I'll probably read it, too.

I'm surprised he didn't recommend the Twilight series.

He's probably been keeping up with my blog and read my reviews of Twilight, so he knew better than to recommend it. :-)
