    I loved the Lisa See books. I'll have to try to find Miss Chopsticks.

    I'm currently reading Julia's Chocolates by Cathy Lamb. It's pretty good. When I started reading it, it reminded me of Rebecca Wells's The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood.

    I just re-read "Skinny Dip" by Carl Hiaasen. His books are generally very amusing. This is one that I read a few years ago, and then picked up a copy when I was in Lithuania. I like to pick up Lithuanian translations of books I've read to see how good or bad the translation is. The translation of this particular book was just awful.

    Anyway, it's a good read, good summer reading in particular.

    I have read the book The One Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared.

    Very funny read at times, and some sections are too far fetched. But I did like it alot, and liked how it ended.

    It is about a man who decides to skip his 100th birthday party at a nursing home and go somewhere else. He ends up meeting another elderly man and together, they make a run for it as they accidentally killing two men. The chapters go back and forth between the present and the past, so that we get to know the backstory of the centenarian.

    I'm continuing the Simon Serrailler series by Susan Hunt (a detective series set in Britain). I've recently read A Betrayal of Trust and am currently reading A Question of Identity.

    In between the two I've read Tami Hoag's latest, The Ninth Girl. I always enjoy reading TH's novels and this one did not disappoint. I look forward to her next one...likely a couple of years away icon_cry.gif.

    Hunting and Gathering by Anna Gavalda was also quite good once I got past the odd syntax that comes from a story being translated from it's original language (in this case, French).

    Try not to compare them, racrgal...you'll be disappointed in Miss Chopsticks. It's a shorter novel with less character development and gives you only a surface glimpse into the Chinese culture. I still enjoyed reading it though.

    I have given up on the Ian Rutledge series, too -- having read 6 or 7 -- became repetitive, but not surprising.

    Best I have read recently - "Frozen in Time" by Zuckoff. Non-fiction about plane crash in 1942 in Greenland, and subsequent efforts to rescue the crew -- leading to 2 more crashes, then attempts to reclaim in 1945 and 2011. EXCELLENT read about Coast Guard during WWII, and vivid descriptions of "life" in a crashed bomber on the ice for MONTHS !!

    Also read "Paris" by Rutherford -- not as good as some earlier tomes. Got confusing, mixing generations and timelines.

    Couldn't deal with "Silken Prey" by Sandford -- too much "musing", not enough action.

    Currently on "The Light in the Ruins" -- OK, but waiting for new releases by favorite authors.

    Janey, I'd be interested to hear what you have to say when you've finished reading The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian. I've got it on hold at the library. CB's novels are hit and miss for me...some I've really loved (Past the Bleachers), some were okay (The Buffalo Soldier) and some I didn't bother to finish (Skeletons At the Feast). I'm hoping this is one of the good ones.

    Just finished "Do You Believe in Magic?: the sense and nonsense of alternative medicine" by Paul A Offit, MD. Very interesting, with indictments of both Oprah and Dr Oz for popularizing unproven and sometimes hazardous theories.

    M&Mers- just finished "The Light in the Ruins' -- thought it was very interesting and a good read. We had visited Florence and several of the Tuscany towns -- Montepulcino and the wonderful wines, plus being WWII buffs. The transitions from wartime 40's and '55 were not a problem, as some stories are. The ending was a total surprise ! I USED to read "the last page first" -- harder to do with a Kindle -- and glad I didn't know. If you have enjoyed other books by Bohjalian, i would think you would find this well done. I will try some others.

    This sounds like some interesting reading. My ex was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma in January. He denied all traditional treatments, went on The Budwig Diet and started taking supplements. He said he felt great but still the cancer progressed and we buried him last Saturday.

    Thanks for the review, Janey...I look forward to reading it. I can't believe you used to read the last page first! icon_eek.gif

    This sounds interesting, duonyte...I'll add it to my list. My SIL loves Dr. Oz so I'll pass the recommendation on to her as well. Thanks.

    Thank you. I'm interested to read the book on the alternative treatments. He felt great until the last couple of weeks instead of being sick from chemo. His oncologist said that he would not have lasted any longer with traditional treatment and sure wouldn't have felt as good.
