Geek Love by Katharine Dunn. This novel has the quirkiest cast of characters and situations of any cult story written in the last twenty years. Circus sideshow freaks of nature dominate this odd tale of a perfectly dysfunctional family. You can see the scenes played out in your mind as you read along. A delight for the reader who likes things off the best-seller lists.

Assistant Librarian

We Need to Talk about Kevin by Lionel Shriver is more than your basic high school massacre novel. Told in letters by the mother to her husband you are not prepared for the shocking final chapters. Heartbreaking and unforgettable makes this my favorite book of 2004.
