The Flanders Panel by Arturo Perez-Reverte. A really good mystery which
is poetically written. The movie "Uncovered" was based on it.

Love King or hate him you must admit that you are curious what has become of little Danny Torrance over the last 35 years. Doctor Sleep by Stephen King. The sequel to the Shining.

This is the reason I picked up my current read. Doctor Sleep is on it's way.(25% off on ebay)

As someone pointed out.. it really should be "Ptaken by the Pterodactyl"^^^

@Khanom.. yeah that's one of those books your really have to meditate and set yourself in the right frame of mind for. It's an involved read. 1st book's the best.

Stephen King's style has developed into an incredible sense of the reader.
This book is a masterpiece.

Yay! New Stephen King! On the list.

There is way...it looks just awful:

Finished Socrates' Philoktetes an hour ago. Nail-biter up until cheesy ending. Experienced pity, then fear, but did not reach catharsis. Caliban-like protagonist should have offed himself in his cave as a message to all who abandon warriors.

Moving on to Glengary, GlenRoss this afternoon. Three chapters away from finishing Ulysses.

Just finished reading "Just Kids", Patti Smith's autobiographical book about her relationship with Robert Maplethorpe. It kind of helps me understand what my son is going through trying to make it as an artist in New York.

I liked "Just Kids"

I just finished Jumpa Lahiri's new book, The Lowland. I liked, but didn't love The Namesake. This one was amazing. She painted the most tragic and subtle characters. Highly recommend it.

Now I'm onto Wally Lamb's We Are Water. Not too impressed yet, but holding out hope.
