Keep reading if you want to know the books your favorite Google search guru recommends for summer reading, though they have nothing to do with SEO or paid search. Matt Cutts makes a list of his faves -- mostly fiction, including Josh Bazell's "Beat the Reaper," Lee Child's "Gone Tomorrow," and A. Lee Martinez's "Monster."
Cutts describes "Monster's" plot as whimsical and humorous. In "Monsters," strange creatures roam the world, he writes. The story somewhat reminds him of a Terry Pratchett book. But where "Pratchett dangles the end of the world in front of readers with a smile, as if to say 'don't worry, every thing will be fine,' Martinez's book loses its footing toward the end when it tackles such weighty matters," Cutts writes.
