Seven top suspense novels

E. Lockhart's new novel is We Were Liars. At The Barnes & Noble Book Blog she tagged her favorite suspense novels, including:
Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club has an everyman narrator, very relatable in his feelings of fear and frustration—until you realize he is far more complicated than you could possibly have imagined. The plot twist had me literally jumping up and down; I was so elated by it. I’d tell you more, but the “first rule of Fight Club is: you do not talk about Fight Club.”
Read about the other entries on the list.

Fight Club is among Joel Cunningham's top five books short enough to polish off in an afternoon, but deep enough to keep you thinking long into the night, Kathryn Williams's eight craziest unreliable narrators in fiction, Jessica Soffer's ten best book endings, Sebastian Beaumont's top ten books about psychological journeys, and Pauline Melville's top ten revolutionary tales.
