    I just finished reading James Patterson's "The 10th Anniversary". It's a good read if you like the Murder Club books.

    I've been reading a lot of different titles recently, and only a couple are worth mentioning.

    I enjoyed 'Gods of Gotham' by Lyndsay Faye - fiction
    It is very different, and keeps the interest. I can't say that I have ever read anything like it.
    Amazon says: '1845. New York City forms its first police force. The great potato famine hits Ireland. These two seemingly disparate events will change New York City. Forever.'

    The other was 'Mrs Kennedy and Me' by Clint Hill - bio
    Clint Hill was Kennedy's secret service guy in the white house and the books reveals a lot of sweet little nuggets.

    Amazon says: 'For four years, from the election of John Fitzgerald Kennedy in November 1960 until after the election of Lyndon Johnson in 1964, Clint Hill was the Secret Service agent assigned to guard the glamorous and intensely private Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy. During those four years, he went from being a reluctant guardian to a fiercely loyal watchdog and, in many ways, her closest friend.
    Now, looking back fifty years, Clint Hill tells his story for the first time, offering a tender, enthralling, and tragic portrayal of how a Secret Service agent who started life in a North Dakota orphanage became the most trusted man in the life of the First Lady who captivated first the nation and then the world. '


    I copied this over from the old thread as I must have posted it just before the thread was dropped for the new one.

    WHEW -- thought I'd lost you ! Ben reading some UNremarkabe books. I think I was the one who panned the John Corey book -- him and Yemen as the place I LEAST want to visit !

    DD insisted I read "Defending Jacob" -- called it the "best book she ever read" ! I have no such feeling -- an assistant DA is consumed with his 14 year old son's innocence, when he has apparently murdered a school mate. DD is big into psychology, but I find the dad just DUMB ! I will have to look up recent reads -- nothing memorable !

    Thanks to whoever restarted this thread.

    I just finished Weapon of Choice By Patricia Gussin. The author is a physician and the book is a medical thriller. Very well written, but very technical. The book has recurring characters from other books in the series, but you can pretty much pick up the character's story lines.

    Just finished reading The General’s Daughter (Nelson DeMille)
    (from Amazon)
    Here is an intriguing and sophisticated murder mystery of an upstanding military officer - the base commander's daughter - who's been leading an unsavory double life.

    When a professional military woman with a pristine reputation is found raped and murdered, a preliminary search turns up certain paraphernalia, and s@x toys that point to a scandal of major proportions, The chief investigator is reluctant to take the case when he learns that his partner will be a woman with whom he had a tempestuous affair and an unpleasant parting. But duty calls and intrigue begins when they learn that several top-level people may have been involved with the "golden girl" - and many have wanted her dead.

    It's Nelson DeMille at his best - exciting, suspenseful and highly provocative.

    It was a really good read, suspenseful, (tawdry in some parts, not for the faint of heart or easily offended) heart breaking in some parts…
    I just found out that they made a movie of the book in 1999 (John Travolta)
    I don’t think I’ll watch it, though I love James Cromwell… I think I’d like to keep this story in my head, rather than watch someone else’s visualization

    Another book to movie, I just picked up is Silver Linings Playbook… it’s a little hard to get into early on. It’s written in the first person of the main character when he’s being released from a mental hospital… he keeps using terms like “bad place” and “apart time” and although I know it’s to show you his frame of mind, it’s starting to grate on me a bit

    I’ve heard such good things about the movie AND read great reviews about the book, I’m going to tough it out (I’m only four chapters in)

    Just finished "Gone Girl" by Gillian Flynn. Loved her first two books (Sharp Edges and Dark Places) and really liked this one.......until the end. Hated the way it ended! But will not give up on her, love her writing style and will definitely read any future books.

    Am currently reading "The 100-yr old Man who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared". It's another Swedish-translated-to-english book that's been on the best seller lists. Have just started it but am enjoying it so far!

    The movie of the General's Daughter didn't do it justice. Book much better. Loved the Silver Linings Playbook movie...did not read the book first.

    WOW, Me too! I thought I had lost this thread but finally found my way to io it. So much to catch up with. For now I will just say that I have gicven up on DeMille's "Panther" and Cussler's "Poisiden". Am struggling with Patterson's "Kill Alex Cross" - Another writer who has gone downhill in my opinion. DH orders so many books from the library and so many are not worth reading. He gets his titles from the best seller list in the newspaper. IMHO there are not that many new good books out there! Glad I found this trhead again-always enjoy reading the opinions here!

    I can't remember the last time I read a published book.

    Mostly now I read fan fiction that I find online, for my favorite TV shows, which include (in order of what I read most to least).

    Sherlock (BBC)
    Star Trek (original series)
    Star Trek (reboot)
    Doctor Who


    A lot are rubbish, but there are some extremely talented writers doing this stuff.


    (I've written a few myself - Star Trek TOS only...shhhh!)
