Booking Through Thursday: Things Get Serious

What’s the most serious book you’ve read recently?
(I figure it’s easier than asking your most serious boook ever, because, well, it’s recent!)

The most serious book I've read recently was one that I just finished yesterday, Chandler Burr's You or Someone Like You, a very challenging novel that treads on some very delicate ground- relations between Jews and Christians, and how institutionalized religion directs human behavior. I told a friend yesterday that I need about a month with a therapist to process this book; writing the review is going to be almost as challenging as reading the book was in places. This one is definitely not for the beach!
