I finished This Lullaby, and although it was a good read I wasn’t completely sold. I did identify with the main character, and I love the group of guys the author created, but the entire book was rather slow-paced so I didn’t feel drawn in.
I just picked up Slumdog Millionaire (formerly titled Q&A, the book upon which the movie is based). I just started it, but the writing seems to be well-written so I hope I enjoy it. I haven’t seen the movie but I’ve heard wonderful things.
