Read 'Minority Report', by Phillip K Dick. Interesting. His short stories are always good. Surprised a film was made of this story, which I've not seen.

I had the same reaction to the book. A dear friend loved it and suggested it, and I hated that I had to tell her that I did not enjoy it.

I loved both this book and Defending Jacob.. Both very thought provoking.

I am not sure if this series was mentioned earlier in the thread, but I recently dicovered The Tony Hill and Carol Jordan series by Val McDermid.. I am really enjoying them.

I'm glad you liked it! We had fun at my book club answering the question "would you read the letter, or not?"

That is the question





For anyone who reads YA novels my librarian just recommended one:

The Scorpio Races
by Maggie Stiefvater

Well, now I'm intrigued and added "The Husband's Secret" to my ever growing TBR list. It's sad I don't remove books as quickly as I add them!

I finally finished Faye Kellerman's "Day of Atonement" and started Sharyn McCrumb's "Zombies of the Gene Pool." This is the third book in a row I'm finding it hard to get into. I think I'm just too preoccupied with other things right now as Sharyn McCrumb, Faye Kellerman and before that Janet Evanovich are all authors I usually enjoy.

I've always been a fan of Walter Mosley, so catching up on his books I haven't read yet. Also just finished Andrew Carnegie's biography from David Nasaw, and just checked out the autobiography from Harry Belafonte, who I've always found fascinating.

I am 36% through a book by a writer I know and I think I have to give up or kill myself. Part of the problem is it is thinly fictionalized and I know the people, the places, the family history and I can't distance myself in the right way from it. So I won't mention the title. It is a deadly serious book and there's just so many things that bother me, I don't know where to start.
