What are some books you've read lately?

I just got done reading Red Rain by R.L. Stine. It's a pretty good thriller by him and a good first venture into adult writing by him.

After having read the Dresden Files twice in a row (the whole series, cover to cover, up to the latest book, "Cold Days"), I got into Jim Butcher's other series, the "Codex Alera", which I am enjoying tremendously. I'm into the next to last book now. This series has only six books, and I don't think there are any sequels planned.

A good read. It also makes the time pass until the next Dresden sees the light of day. Very Happy

An old "hard" science fiction classic: Inherit the Stars by James Hogan.

Great story, with an original theory on how the asteroid belt was formed and why the Neanderthals never had a chance against the Cro-Magnons. And how Neil Armstrong wasn't the first human to walk on the Moon!

The Ballad of Tom Dooley by Sharyn McCrumb - the real story behind the famous folk song "Hang down your head Tom Dooley". Well researched, fascinating.

I've just finished (re)reading Billy by Pamela Stephenson, a biography of one of my favourite comedians. It's quite sad in parts, but a very interesting read.

The Sunbird by Wilbur Smith

High adventure, true and less true love, a hint of reincarnation and history repeating itself across the ages, plus legend of a golden lost city. Great entertainment.

A Place of Execution by Val McDermid

Good thriller with quite a twist ending (the solution to the crime is quite far-fetched though. For things to have happened that way, there needed to be too many unlikely coincidences.)

V is for Vengeance by Sue Grafton.

I like this "alphabet series" a lot. Kinsey Millhone gets better with every book.

Hannah by Paul-Loup Sulitzer

The story of a White Russian refugee in Paris after the Communist takeover and the fall of the Czar. A guy I "met" on another chat site had bought the book, read it and thought I might enjoy it so he mailed it to me, wasn't that sweet? I enjoyed it, too. Very Happy
