Can't remember if I blogged about this, but I really loved this book! Definitely would make a great movie. Very LeCarre-esque. One of my favorites.
The Pillars of the Earth (5/5) - Ken Follett
Ok it took forever and a day, but truly one of the best books I have ever experienced....in fact for a while I regretted listening instead of reading, but I think if I was reading it, I would still be. Truly cool from a character development, rich information sense....I actually could understand what 10th/11th c. life was like.
Lamb (4.5/5) - Christopher Moore
This guy has managed to become one of my favorites. Really funny story of the lost years of Jesus told by his long forgotten boyhood friend Bif.
Legacy of Ashes (1/5) - Tim Weiner
Honestly...never got through it.....was sick of it within the first 2 hours.
The Amulet of Samarkand - The Bartimaeus Trilogy Book 1 - Jonathan Stroud
It was ok (3/5)....there were some cool concepts...much darker and more detailed than the potter series
A New Earth (3.5/5) - Eckhart Tolle
Despite the hype, this book seems to be everything people want it to be. Those who are schooled in various philosophically ego-heavy disciplines will find this familiar territory.....I enjoyed it....very difficult to listen to while driving.
The Four Things a Service Business Must Get Right (Harvard Business Review) (2.5/5) - Frances X. Frei
Interesting, nothing new, well stated points.....the best of HBR in providing quotable quotes.....I do believe HBR is the birthplace of buzzword bingo in the corporate world.
Bad Luck and Trouble (3.5/5) - Lee Child
I enjoyed this book, found it interesting and plot hidden for long enough that it kept my interest....a lot like a Nelson Demille but not as outright funny.
next on the list
World Without End - Ken Follett
