In Response to RE: What's everyone reading? by EDIENOW

HI Edie, it was just a lucky find.  I think someone on this site had mentioned it WAY BACK and I remembered it so for $1.00 I picked it up.  For some reason, I checked on either the library site or the Amazon site and there were two books with the same name - different author, of course.  So I wasn't sure if this was the one this site referred to.  I'm happy I have my own copy though.

In Response to RE: Dan Brown by aberlaine

Hi Aberlaine, I did read The DiVinci Code several years back.  I enjoyed it but it wasn't one I would rave about.  Can't remember all the details though.

I'm about 10-15 pages from finishing The Concrete Blond and there are several twists here at the end which caught me by surprise.  I wonder how this whole thing will end.  I'm enjoying it a lot...kept my interest all the way through.  Sally

Edie,

I certainly agree with you about Faulkner. I didn't like As I lay Dying and I wasn't even able to get more that 2-3 pages into Absalom, Absalom.

In Response to Sara Paretsky by arlie18

Arlie,

I really enjoyed Paretsky's Body Work - I could hardly put it down, and finished it this afternoon.  I think it is every bit as good as, if not better than, the earlier books in the series.  Vic has aged well, and the story was not too far-fetched.

Now, for a change of pace I am going to read Sights Unseen, which according to the jacket blurb is a story about a manic-depressive mother as told from the point of view of her "confused but affectionate daughter", written by Kaye Gibbons.  It should be a quick read, since it is just over 200 pages.

Jan

Hi, Jeanette,

Thanks for giving us the author of The Paris Wife, Paula McClain. I took a course in college about the writings of Hemingway, F.Scott Fitzgerald, and William Faulkner.  Can you imagine spending a whole semester with these three guys?  If I were to give these three authors grades, I'd probably give Hemingway a B for Farewell to Arms, an A to Fitzgerald for The Great Gatsby and Faulkner would get an F for anything he wrote.  Oh, no! Please, folks, don't throw eggs and tomatoes at me!!!!  This was just my VHO!

Is anyone a fan of author Dan Brown?



I read the Da Vinci Code when it first came out.  Never saw the movie.  The only other book I read by Dan Brown was Deception Point which was excellent.  It's apparently one of his earlier books, but a page turner nonetheless.

In Response to RE: What's everyone reading? by Angel-Sally

Hi, Sally,

I'd say that is quite a find to pay $1.00 for a book that is destined to be your October book club read!  Tell me, did you know it was the book club choice before you found the book, or was it just a lucky find?

Edie

In Response to The Concrete Blonde, Michael Connelly by Angel-Sally

Hi Sally,

I read The Concrete Blonde long ago. I also really liked it. I've liked all of Connelly's books that I've read..and I've read a lot of them. I love the Harry Bosch series.

I just finished The Blue Hour by T. Jefferson Parker. He's another good mystery writer from CA. This is one of his older books. His books remind me of Connelly's somewhat. I have several of his yet to read. I'm starting The Empty Chair by Jeffery Deaver tonight.
