I just finished What Is The What by Dave Eggers. After a strong opening, I struggled to get to the end. But I would recommend the read.

I have put up a slightly longer review here:

I'm currently reading Umberto Eco's Zero Issue. I love this author and his meticulous historical details in all of his works. He has that unique combination of wittiness and wisdom you can rarely find un an author.

I finished another novel by Dave Eggers: Zeitoun. This one convinced me much more than What is the What.

Amazing how Eggers turns non-fiction into a top notch thriller.

I posted a short review on my blog. Link is in the signature.

Just finished David Morrell's FIRST BLOOD, his debut novel and the book that introduced Rambo to the world. Terrific book and quite different from (and better than) the Stallone film version.

Now about to re-read King's FIRESTARTER. Read it in 1980, when it first appeared, and am eager to revisit it.

Just started A Song for Arbonne by Guy Gavriel Kay. Brilliant author. I read Tigana a bit ago and was blown away. Recommended for fans of Fantasy, extensive character development, and epic conflicts of morale.

I just finished the first chapter of M. J. Rose's The Book Of Lost Fragrances. It drew me in immediately.

It's been a while since I had time to read a book, this suspense was a good choice..

Now back to the.book. I'm eager to see what happens next.

I'm reading pan and the nightmare by James Hillman "An Essay on Pan". This is, my second time through this work, I garner authority for my dreams this way. I enjoy his essays, everyone has been a value to me.
