Depressing Titles

William Durbin's The Darkest Evening, about a Finnish-American family that is recruited to move to Russia in the 1930's, is as depressing as you would think.

Kevin Brockmeier's The Brief History of the Dead was arty/adult stuff. My son just giggled at some of the passages. Very Artistic.

Jodi Picoult's The Pact was like a car wreck-- couldn't look away. Kept skimming just to find out what happened, but bleeeeeeah. I like happier things. Compelling, though.
