Nothing else I read even comes close. Pretty sure this one will be one of my best of the year books too.

Sounds like I'd better check out Adichie's fiction as well! :)

Loved that one, although reading it on the kindle with X-ray helped, so I didn't lose track of who was who

Here are mine:

The Beach Hut ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14866159/ ) by Cassandra Parkin, a nicely-twisty tale set in a small seaside town.

The White Road ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14582473/ ) by Sarah Lotz, a creepy novel about adventure-seekers, morbid curiosity, and what might be malevolent spirits.

When Wanderers Cease to Roam ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14813352/ ) by Vivian Swift is a lovely "travel" journal extolling the joys of NOT traveling.

Slade House ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14598124 ) by David Mitchell deals with a mysterious gate-into-another-dimension that traps the unwary.

Hoosh ( https://www.bookcrossing.com/---/14774106/ ) by Jason Anthony, about "Antarctic cuisine" - ranging from the meals-in-extremis used by early explorers to the relatively-modern-day options at the different Antarctic bases.
