So, I’ve really enjoyed the mysteries by non-English writers I’ve been reading, but I’d like to find more books set in non-English speaking countries or places that are culturally different from what I normally read.
I absolutely adore Sergei Lukyanenko‘s Night Watch series–I re-read it in the fall and am currently listening to the audible versions.
I also love John Burdett‘s Sonchai Jitpleecheep series, which although written by a native English speaker, he’s one who lived in the place about which he’s writing.
But I want more. As may or may not be obvious from my love of fantasy, I like reading about places with which I’m unfamiliar. And Bangkok and Moscow are just about as foreign to me as Middle Earth and Newford.
And if you want to squee about a particular author and tell me all the reasons I need to read them, that’d be awesome as well.
