Booking Through Thursday: Plot Twists

Thursday's topic of discussion is,

"I love books with complicated plots and unexpected endings. What is your favourite book with a fantastic twist at the end?"

It's a funny coincidence that this question comes after my review yesterday of Dragon House. The lack of a complicated plot did not always hold my interest.

Maybe that's why I enjoy mysteries. Anyone else feel the same way?

My vote for the best book with twists and turns is by Jeffrey Cohen. The title is Some Like It Hot Buttered. The protagonist owns a movie theater which is perfect for a film buff like me.

When I thought the mystery had been solved there was still more to come. I loved it. It's been several years since I read this book but I remember it fondly. Perhaps I should dust off my copy and do a book review.

Any other Jeffrey Cohen fans?


  1. The title sounds like some innuendos! I always enjoy a good complicated plot although it's not necessary.

  2. Hi Matt,

    I like the titles of his other books to like, "It Happened One Knife." Okay, maybe corny but consider the name of my blog.

    Aloha from Rob
