“‘The Devil in the White City’ by Erik Larson. It’s about late 1800s Chicago. It’s fiction but it’s pretty accurate historically.”
“‘Living Dead in Dallas’ from The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris. It has vampires and werewolves and all this supernatural stuff. It’s a lot of fun.”
“‘The Lost Symbol’ by Dan Brown. It was about the Masons and it’s excellent.”
“‘Super-Cannes’ by J.G. Ballard. It’s this very upscale corporate environment. It’s a different society and for some reason they advocate violence to deal with the cure the ills of the corporate world.”
“‘The Hunger Games’ by Suzanne Collins. It’s about a girl who’s 16 years old and every year they go to the capital to be awarded to be in the hunger games. Pretty much the point of the game is to be the last one alive.”
