So, my favorite book for the first quarter of 2011 is (drum roll please)....
The Death Instinct by Jed Rubenfeld
This was actually a hard decision. The Death Instinct is just the sort of book I go for. It's historical fiction based on true events. The competition, however, was stiff between it and Bent Road by Lori Roy, which I haven't posted my review for yet. They are completely different, yet both had me hooked in the first page. However, with The Death Instinct I think I found a new favorite author for one of my favorite genres. Rubenfeld is both educational and engaging in his reimagining of history. He injects humor into his story too, which I always enjoy.
Have you read The Death Instinct yet? What did you think?
