The Kite Runner. It's excellent so far, and I'm ripping through it. Also rereading Macbeth, since I'm teaching it for the first time in quite some time.

Just finished Swan Song by McCammon. I liked the beginning, didn't care for the end, so much.

Up next, The Mephisto Club by Tess Gerritsen.

The Kite Runner to me had the best writing i have seen in a book.
Best writing ever in my opinion.

I kept reading good things about this book, but i felt the subject did not interest me. I needed a quick summer book so i bought it.

Glad i did.

Neil Gaiman: American Gods

Pretty cool modern fantasy about immigrant Gods and what happens as they lose their followers. I think I'm about to go on a Gaiman kick.

Heh. Read that one a little while back. Strange, good read. Keg also liked that one.

Pick up Gaiman's Neverwhere. It's a pretty good fantasy book.

Years ago. Great spoof of the "Conspiracy" thrillers...

Fantastic ending as well, IMO.

Easily the strangest book I have ever read. Hard to put down, though.

For all the drug induced weirdness that goes on, these guys do an excellent job keeping the story going and the reder interested.

I'm about 2/3rds of the way through it, which means I only have another 300 pages to go.

And I did buy it (Shaara's The Rising Tide), with a gift card I got for Christmas. But I'm currently reading an extremely long and detailed biography of Benjamin Franklin.

I'm reading History of Pirates: Blood and Thunder on the High Seas by Nigel Cawthorne. So far I'm not that impressed, although I'm only a couple of chapters into it. How is yours?

Same here. Both of them are good books.
