I DID let go after 23 pages to do to the translation I have to do, but I think this book is going to be a real winner for those who like that sort of thing. He has to be a British writer because his characters are British.

These are the first couple of lines: Jane woke, stretched and decided to kill herself. If she hadn't found a reason to live by the end of the day she would jump from the rig. It felt good to have a plan.

I finished Outpost. I thought it was a good book. I wasn't crazy about the ending. But all in all, I still thought it was a good book. And I will check out his other books, if any.

I started On the Rez by Ian Frazier.

I really enjoyed it, too, netwit. I liked "Ghost" so much.

Can't wait to get on to that book. I go in order, so it'll be another week or week and a half before I'm finally there.

I'm reading Andrew Morton's biography of Tom Cruise. I think he (Cruise, not Morton) is totally nuts and I want to see what made him that way.

Peter Carey's "Oscar and Lucinda" is a wonderful read. Every once in a while for a page or two, it actually brings to mind Tolstoy. If you love a well-crafted literary style, read this.

I have to think it's short man complex -- has to prove himself. I like his movies, but what I read about him isn't what I like in a person.
