my first post in the Europa Challenge

I've just posted my first review on the Europa Challenge Blog.  My inaugural entry is Total Chaos, by Jean-Claude Izzo, a novel of neo-noir crime fiction.  If you're interested, you can click the link and go on over. My focus throughout the challenge will be crime fiction since it's my favorite genre, although there are multiple participants who are reading every genre represented via Europa Editions -- in short, something for everyone. 

My review is also cross-posted at the crime portion of this reading journal.  If you like crime fiction and haven't been there, please go take a look. It's mostly my thoughts on various translated novels, especially from Scandinavia, but there are other countries represented as well.

Anyway, the first hurdle has been crossed, and my next entry will be Izzo's second novel in the series, Chourmo.
