Recycled Book Reading Challenge: Rising Sun by Michael Crichton

This 1992 novel by Michael Crichton was a pretty good read. I’m not sure where I managed to pick up this book. As I don’t normally purchase books that have been made into movies, I’m thinking this was something that was passed along to me by a friend.

I like detective novels, in small doses. I have seen this movie – probably several times – so there wasn’t so much thrill and surprise to the book in general. This is precisely why I don’t normally read books that have been made into movies – unless I haven’t seen the movie yet.

The book was ok. Surely much better had I not already had a clear idea of how the events would unfold. However, at this point in the game, I’m happy to have dusted it off and now I can pass it along. Already have, as a matter of fact. I have discovered a few places that will gladly accept books in any language, as they have on occasion, many different nationalities which need to pass the time.

If you have a bookshelf full of old books that need to be dusted off and read, please join my Recycled Book Reading Challenge! All that’s asked of you is to a read a book that it’s your possession once a month and write a post about it on the 1st of the month. You are welcome to leave a link to your post under any of the Recycled Book Reading Challenge posts here and I will link to you on my upcoming post. The more the merrier!
