so far hugh laurie‘s the gun seller is fantastic. he has a really witty, clever writing style and a sense of humor that is distinctly british, whatever that means, but works well for him, since he is, in fact, british (most commas ever). the book is about a man who is unwittingly caught up in some international intrigue involving arms dealers. allegedly. i’m just now getting into the arms dealing thing and while the plot is really interesting – particularly the way he reveals tidbits of information, resulting in frantic flipping back through what’s already been read – i couldn’t care less if it was just about a guy sitting and doing nothing. it’s that good.

read the first chapter of the gun seller.
