BOOK REVIEW

FURY by Elizabeth Miles
Released: Aug. 30, 2011

"The nod to Greek mythology may suggest a gothic tale, but this novel reads more like a screenplay for a modern teen horror movie—deliciously chilling, if a bit obvious at times. (Horror. 12 & up)"
The furies are reinvented in eerie modern form, wreaking havoc in the lives of a group of teens in a fictional Maine town in this spine-prickling debut, first in a planned trilogy. Read full book review >

BOOK REVIEW

FURY by Salman Rushdie
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Sept. 11, 2001

"Malik is a very fully realized character, and Fury positively vibrates with intellectual energy (it's also frequently quite funny). But it's still more tirade than novel: Rushdie's weakest book since his (justly) forgotten first novel (Grimus, 1976)."
