Dean Koontz' Forever Odd is new on the NYT fiction list this week. On the non-fiction list, Bob Spitz' The Beatles appears for the first time this week. Jan and Michael Stern give the Beatles book a very favorable review despite reservations about its 1000 page length and as they note, "we had to wonder what could possibly be left to say about the musical foursome whom John Lennon once declared more popular than Jesus."
I was wondering that myself, since most fans know the Fab Four's story as well as their own life story. But there was something left to say, and it's all in this massive tome.
