I listen to a lot of audiobooks, read a lot of library books and e-books, still somehow never have enough room on my bookshelves.

Burnt Shadows

Burnt Shadows - Kamila Shamsie This was a bit of a let down after how much I loved A God in Every Stone, but it never really came together for me as a story, sort of limping around between different characters and threads, and constantly abandoning our heroine for far-less interesting stories about her boring husband and kid. It also didn't seem to have the thematic punch of the other books, and more or less settled into a dreary anti-war message.

The writing was gorgeous, and some of the character moments were beautifully drawn, but on the whole, meh.
