- Runaway Jury,
by John Grisham
A fascinating read. Better than the movie (and different).
- The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail,
Fascinating speculations about Jesus, with a great deal of supportive evidence.
- King Rat
by James Clavell
So good that I read this one twice, and it was every bit as good as the first time.
- Cold Mountain
Great story telling. Much better than the movie.
- Warriors of God
by J Reston Jr
A superbly written historical account of the third crusade. It also reveals the nature of the fanaticism behind the present hostility in Iraq.
- The Lord God Made Them All
Delightful short stories following the funny adventures of a British country vetinarian. This is one of over a half dozen books by the same author; all much recommended.
- Honk and Hollar Opening Soon
A really enjoyable and funny read that I almost passed by owing to the curious title.
The third of the Hannibal Lector series, so good I read it twice.
- Where the Heart Is
- War of the Rats
Historical fiction. Great account of a WW2 Russian sniper in the city of Stalingrad.
