New ReleasesThis fall book season can be one the most fruitful in recent years. Publishers are planning massive book release expansion, booksellers rub their hands and book readers make space on their bookshelves :)

Rowling's fans cannot skip The Casual Vacancy (Sep 27) which is author's first book aimed at adult readers.  Pulitzer Prize-winners Junot Díaz (awarded in 2008 for The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao) and Michael Chabon (awarded in 2001  for The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay) are releasing on September 11 This Is How You Lose Her and Telegraph Avenue respectively. Literary fiction readers will be happy to find new book by Ian McEwan Sweet Tooth (Nov 13) and Barbara Kingsolver's Flight Behavior (Nov 6) as well as Emma Donoghue's Astray (Oct 30) and Silent House by Orham Pamuk. 


Those who love series will be thrilled as many writers decided to reveal next book parts in Sep-Nov period. Let's just mention Justin Cronin's The Twelve (Oct 16) book two in The Passage Trilogy, Winter of the World by Ken Follet (second installment in Century Trilogy, Sep 18), Riordan's third book in Heroes of Olympus The Mark of Athena (Oct 2), Lee Child's next Jack Reacher adventures in A Wanted Man (Sep 11), Stephanie Plum’s mystery Notorious Nineteen (Nov 20) by Janet Evanovich, Nora Roberts’s The Perfect Hope (no. 3 in The Inn Trilogy) and Lullaby by Amanda Hocking (Watersong Novels, Nov 27).

The case-study of puckish fate
Paper Money - Ken Follett

What do a businessman, a gay criminal, a ministry and a business magnate have in common? I suppose Money is the answer but also fulfillment and happiness (understood differently by each of them).

The book can be easily characterized as a galley of personalities. Characters are indeed very well built and the plot, though slow, is well led and thought over. Long story short: the novel is about harsh failures and cunning wins, it's about justice and injustice and puckish fate. The beginning's quite slow but the ending is a total surprise!

In the preface Ken Follet writes that he considers this book as his best novel. I'm not sure if I'd agree with his but Paper Money are definitely worth reading.
