I have neglected this thread much too long. I have read many books since I last posted here. I don't remember all the books i've read this my last post but here are the books I can recall. Lots of crime novels.
I started the Elvis Cole detective series by Robers Crais.
-Monkey's Rain Coat
-Stalking An Angel
There may have been others but i don't remember now. Entertaining novels about a PI and his sidekick (Pike). I like L.A. Requiem the best so far. Not bad overall and all the books I've read are decent reads. However, as contemporary detective novels go, I prefer Michael Connely's Bosch series and Harlan Coben's Bolitar novels better than Crais.
-The Drop (Michael Connelly)
One of the most recent novel in the Bosch series. Not bad, I enjoyed it.
-Blood Work (Michael Connelly)
Not a Bosch novel and an older book I had yet to read until now. It was made into a movie staring Clint Eastwood. Also a decent read.
-Back Spin (Harlan Coben)
One of the better Myron Bolitar novels.
-Killing Floor (Lee Child)
The first in a series of Reacher novels. Not bad but I'm not terribly impressed. Maybe the books get better as the series progresses.
-Out on the Cutting Edge (Lawrence Block)
One of the Matthew Scudder crime novels and the first one I have read. It's good enough to want me to read more in the series. In fact, I went out and bought a couple more.
-Thank You For Smoking (Christopher Buckley)
A story about a PR man for the tobacco industry. Very funny and entertaining book. Loved it. I have also read "The White House Mess" by Buckley and I don't think anyone else does political satire as well as he does.
-Gil's All Fright Diner (A. Lee Martinez)
About two friends, a vampire and a werewolf. A light, wacky and funny read. I liked it a lot and plan to read more books by this author.
-Bloodsucking Fiends (Christopher Moore)
I can only say, for the upteenth time that I love Moore. He is absolutely hilarious. Carl Hiaasen put it best, "Christopher Moore is a very sick man, in the very best sense of the world". Very funny and entertaining book.
I can't think of the other books I've read. I will post my reviews on them if/when I remember.
I just started reading Stephen King's The Stand, the complete and uncut version. Good grief!!!!! This is a long book (1153 pages). I expect to post my review on this book by 2015...lol.
