What are you reading right now? Would you recommend it? What’s it about?

I am reading Suzy's Case by Andy Siegal

http://www.bookreporter.com/reviews/suzys-case


An exciting debut laced with insider details—a galloping legal thriller introducing a personal injury lawyer who stops at nothing to win his case.
A young African-American girl named Suzy and her fate at a Brooklyn hospital are at the heart of a seemingly unwinnable case, and New York City personal injury attorney Tug Wyler is out to find justice. Boasting a combination of street smarts, legal brinksmanship, and no small amount of charm, Wyler discovers the truth behind her condition—and the conniving doctors and hospital administrators who went to great lengths to cover it up.
     As he seeks to win millions for Suzy—and her long-suffering mother, who cares for her night and day—Tug Wyler takes readers on an electrifying journey into the aggressive, high-stakes world of New York personal injury law, where everyone cuts corners, cuts throats, and cuts deals to win big.
I do recommend it for all those who love legal thrillers...

From the Review Pile is a meme hosted by Stepping Out of the Page every Thursday. The aim of this meme is to showcase books that you've received for review. (or any book that you own and really want to read/review) but haven't yet got around to reading, in order to give the book some extra publicity.

Lightning Rods by Helen DeWitt:


All I want is to be a success. That’s all I ask.’ Failing salesman Joe has a dream — or rather an outrageous fantasy. Because holed up in his trailer Joe comes up with a jaw-dropping plan that will stamp out sexual harassment in the workplace and make his fortune. Win-win? As he turns his life around, Lightning Rods takes us to the very top of corporate America…
Helen DeWitt follows her extraordinary debut The Last Samurai with a sharp, uproarious satire on modern life and corporate culture.

I'm not a big fan of legal thrillers, however, this one sounds interesting. Thanks for the visit today.

The snake on the cover is pretty awesome. I'd much rather have a snake on a book than on a plane.
