"Mindfulness and Murder"
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (7)

Mindfulness and Murder by Nick Wilgus is by no means great literature, but I found it very enjoyable. In addition to being true to its Buddhist background, it was also quite an intriguing murder mystery. Additionally, it's a human interest story, central to the main character's motivations and methods.

One thing that especially drew my attention was the quality of writing. I would be willing to bet that the novel was dictated to Dragon Naturally Speaking or some other voice translation software.

The novel has the cadence (and the errors) of spoken language. If you are used to reading books in the style of written English, there are occasions to stop and check out what the author means by subvocalizing the sentence(s).

And, of course, there are the polysyllabic Thai names, but, thankfully, not too many of them. Next time I read one of his books I'll make a point of making a quick list for reference.

Next time? Oh, yes, his writing is quite good and an excellent evening's entertainment (forget the boob tube).
