B is for Burglar by Sue Grafton (read December 15, 2015)
After a long and stressful semester, I really needed a book that I could simply read. Something that would not require much deciphering, something to read while eating a medium bag of peanut butter M&M’s, if you know what I mean. This book was exactly what I was looking for.
The second Kinsey Millhone book follows her in pursuit to find a missing sister, traveling across the country to follow leads. Dealing with some very interesting characters, she risks both her life and her reputation to do her job. Grafton writes many passages of great intellect and of thrills and chills, engaging the reader and putting them in Kinsey’s place.
Sue Grafton books are not philosophical, they are not classics, they do not challenge societal norms; they are purely for entertainment. If you are looking for something more than that, this series isn’t what you should be reading. I would compare this book to empty calories; it is great to snack on (or binge on for a day), but I couldn’t survive consuming this kind of material exclusively.
