Books to whittle away 25 hours on a plane?
February 1, 2012 8:31 AM Subscribe
I need some well-written and very suspenseful books to take my mind off of a 25-hour flight. Donna Tartt's "The Secret History" is the ideal book, but alas, I've already read it. I also need two-person travel sized games.

I am a bit picky about my books - they absolutely must be well-written, and in this particularly, addictive. In addition to The Secret History, I also loved Fieldwork by Mischa Berlinski (if you haven't read it, you should
!), Possession by A.S. Byatt, Ian McEwan's Atonement and Diaz's Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao.
I found all those books positively addictive and could not put them down, partly due to their level of suspense. What else should I read?
Also, if anyone has games for my husband and I to play on the plane that won't annoy passengers next us nor take up crazy amounts of space, list them below please!
