Book Reviews and Welcome Chris Hallbeck

Unshelved Book Club

With today's book talk of The Cuckoo's Calling we welcome Unshelved's new regular guest artist, our good friend Chris Hallbeck, author of three hilarious webcomics you should read every day: The Book of Biff, Maximumble, and Minimumble. Bill and I will continue to write the book talks together, but now Chris will draw some of them, giving Bill a much-needed break while he's on his insane 13 month roadtrip. Please join us in welcoming Chris to the Unshelved family!

In this week's Unshelved Book Club you'll find books about a PI investigating a plot against his ex-girlfriend's boyfriend, an aging warrior battling his aches and pains as he fights a hopeless battle, a number of strange deaths due to household appliances, a young woman who opts for gastric bypass surgery to lose weight, a man who kidnaps a former friend because he wants to talk, U2, three sisters strugglig with their older brothers' "suicides," and an autobiographical graphic novel full of crushes, awkwardness, friendship, and punk music.
