Books with a Twist


BookRiot recently ran a list of 100 books that have plot twists:  http://bookriot.com/2017/04/11/100-books-with-plot-twists/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Riot%20Rundown&utm_term=BookRiot_TheRiotRundown_Tue-Thur.

From that list, here are the 25 books I’ve read and reviews for some of them:
Atonement by Ian McEwan
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
The Cutting Season by Attica Locke (I will post a review on May 7.)
The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown
Defending Jacob by William Landay (I will post a review tomorrow, May 6.)
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson
The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro
The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
She’s Come Undone by Wally Lamb
Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe
The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

Of course, there could be some debate as to what makes a good plot twist.  Well, another writer at BookRiot offers her criteria for one:  http://bookriot.com/2017/04/19/what-makes-a-great-twist/?utm_source=Sailthru&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Riot%20Rundown&utm_term=BookRiot_TheRiotRundown_Tue-Thur.   Do you agree?
