Waiting on Wednesday; Trespass


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.  What are you anxiously waiting for?


I've been thinking about this book lately:



(October 18, 2010 - W.W. Norton Co.)

(amazon)... An electrifying novel about disputed territory, sibling love, and devastating revenge from the celebrated author of The Road Home and Restoration. In a silent valley in southern France stands an isolated stone farmhouse, the Mas Lunel. Aramon, the owner, is so haunted by his violent past that he's become incapable of all meaningful action, letting his hunting dogs starve and his land go to ruin. Meanwhile, his sister Audrun, alone in her modern bungalow within sight of the Mas Lunel, dreams of exacting retribution for the unspoken betrayals that have blighted her life. Into this closed world comes Anthony Verey, a wealthy but disillusioned antiques dealer from London. When he sets his sights on the Mas, a frightening and unstoppable series of consequences is set in motion.

  2. I've got a copy and hope to read it next week. I haven't really got high hopes though - most people seem to be a bit disappointed with it.

  10. I have a hold on this at the library, and am looking forward to reading it. Like the above commenter, I've heard that most people have been disappointed with it, but since it's been longlisted for the Booker prize, I figure some people had to really like it. I can't wait to see where I fall.
