Silk by Alessandro somebody
The Maytrees by Annie Dillard. Her writing is just gorgeous.
I've been reading the third book in the Odd Thomas series by Dean Koontz.
Just finished the new Douglas Coupland, The Gum Thief. Jpod is very funny.
Empire Falls by Richard Russo...excellent!!!
"Women & Money" by Suze Ormon. Might get some hints so I can afford more dance lessons.
If you like Empire Falls, then try his earlier (first?) book The Risk Pool. Very similar, and yet so much better.
Another book of short stories by Pearl S. Buck
The QUiet girl by Peter Hoeg author of Mis Smilla's Feeling for Snow.
Another gripping thriller burgeoning with rich imagery teetering on the magical
and abound with the sounds of Copenhagen. Higherlyest recommended
funny...pro bought me empire falls and he thought it was the best one...hmmm...will have to check it out
Hmmm... Well, they're both very good. Empire Falls, though, had too much of a "ripped from the headlines" feel about it for me.
Gods Behaving Badly, by Marie Phillips, about the Greek gods living in London today. Funny.
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, by Jean-Dominique Bauby. Phenomenal. Absolutely stunning. Both funny and heart-wrenching...I was actually laughing on the train this morning, and alternately fighting not to cry.
Am in the process of reading Jane Austen's Emma, and I like it so far.
Just finished Atonement - very good, very well-written, very sad.
That's how I felt about the movie. Such a tragic ending for the lovers because of one horrible lie.
Life Of Pi .. i liked it
Love In The Time Of Cholera .. well, i hope the movie is waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better
Come to the end of The End the last of the "Unfortunate Events" by Lemony Snicket
a deeply troubling book with moral ambiguity abound that the Happy Ending Feelgood Factory Churner-Outers at hollywood should read.
Ooooh, loved Life of Pi.
Finishing up Sons by Pearl S. Buck, the second volumne in The Good Earth trilogy...have already read A House Divided, which is the third...
