The Exorcist, by William Peter Blatty

  • Title:  The Exorcist
  • Author:  William Peter Blatty
  • Borrowed from (Kindle Edition)
  • Started: 10/22/2019
  • Finished: 11/6/2019
Around Halloween my wife & I decided to read this one to each other.  Kind of sweet and bizarre, I suppose, but it mad for several fun weeks of after-dinner reading.  I had read this once before in college, 20+ years ago.  I remembered two things strongly:
  1. The Columbo-like detective in the book
  2. That the book (unlike the movie) made it seem less like a possession and more likely insanity
Well, this reading changed my mind on #2 (Columbo-like detective still stands).  Anyway, we had a fun time with this one.

Title: Flashman and the Tiger
Author: George MacDonald Fraser
Borrowed from Fairfax County VA Public Library Audiobook

Not my favorite Flashman novel, but the knock on Sherlock Holmes at the end is pretty good.
