Beat The Reaper
I bookmarked the idea for getting Beat The Reaper after having had watched Josh Bazell talk at Authors@Google. Needless to say that the personal presentation left an impression enough to complete the cycle -- watch the video then read the book. Yes, the book was entertaining and lived up to expectation, but the story is ultimately forgettable as any novel -- I guess I'm just not a novel junkie.
It looks like it's getting made into a movie.
