Recommended books from my readings for the year 2005
(Cook) A good Sci-Fi yarn thats a little slow getting started but developes into a delightful page turner.
- The Juggler,
A very entertaining and enjoyable story of man in the middle ages who sells his soul to achieve a life's dream.
- Riotous Assembly
A Monty Python like romp into insanity thats hysterically funny at times, and just a belly shaker the rest.
- The Iron Lance
First volume of a trilogy, but a complete story in itself, and a superb historic adventure saga that leaves you wanting more.
- The Tattooed Soldier
A fascinating look at the consequences of violence and revenge.
- The Posession of Joel Delaney
Superb story telling.
- Great Elephant
Being a sucker as I am for historic fiction, this was a fascinating story of a Dutch family's alliance with the king of the Zulu nation at the height of it's power.
- The Samuri's Tale
(Eric Christian Haugaard)
Though apparently written for a young person, this was still a fasinating saga set in 16th century Japan.
- The Footprints of God
A real page turner on the folly of going too far with artificial intelligence. Sci-Fi thriller.
- The Brethren
Every Grisham book I've read has been good but this one travels in even more fascinating directions than most.
*NOTE: That being in prison, my reading options are very limited, hence this list of old titles. But new or old, a good book remains a good book, and these are indeed good reading.
