Modern Mrs. Darcy's 2015 Reading Challenge is really helping me think outside of the box in terms of what I am thinking about reading. This book could fall into both the categories of "A book that was originally published in a different language" and "A book published this year."
Originally published in Spanish, The Discreet Hero tells the parallel stories of two men whose lives end up intersecting. There is a lot packed into this book - infidelity, disinheritance, blackmail.
The story became more delightful as it went on, and my experience reading it was above-average.
