Jason Starr’s Summer Reads


Here are Jason Starr’s picks for the last lazy days of summer:

Whether you are a science fiction or just a fan of great fiction, Heaven’s Shadow, a debut novel by screenwriters David S. Goyer and Michael Cassutt, has to be near the top of your must-read list. The premise is irresistible: think Contact meets Star Trek.This is the first book in a planned trilogy and I can’t wait for number two.

The End of Everything is Edgar Award winner Megan Abbott’s breakout novel and it delivers on every level—at once a searing journey into the mind of a 13-year-old girl, a gripping mystery novel, and a pitch perfect documentary of 1980s suburbia. This book defines literary-thriller with sentences so perfect you’ll want to read them again and again.

If you want a can’t-put-it-down beach read look no further than Eyes Wide Open by Andrew Gross. I’ve been a big fan of Gross’s standalone thrillers since he stopped co-writing with James Patterson, and this psychological chiller is my favourite of his so far.
