Of those I've read Freakonomics and The Name of the Rose, both of which I enjoyed (except for the ending of the latter)--oddly enough, I got them as gifts from the same person--and I keep meaning to read 1776. I've read enough of ES&L in the bookstore and enough reviews to know I don't want to read it. Which leads me to ask, does your version actually have the serial comma in the title?

Peter James

Looking good dead

Tom Bryce did what any decent person would do. But within hours of picking up the CD that had been left behind on the train seat next him, and attempting to return it to its owner, he is the sole witness to a vicious murder. Then his young family are threatened with their lives if he goes to the police. But supported by his wife, Kellie, he bravely makes a statement, to the murder enquiry team headed by Detective Superintendent Roy Grace, a man with demons of his own - including his missing wife - to contend with. And from that moment, the killing of the Bryce family becomes a mere formality - and a grisly attraction. Kellie and Tom's deaths have already been posted on the internet. You can log on and see them on a website. They are looking good dead.

I have just started reading The Kill Artist; the first in a spy thriller series by Daniel Silva. Written incredibly well.

Madame Tussaud: A Life In Wax by Kate Berridge - this is a lot more interesting than it may seem it would be.
The Guns of August by Barbara Tuchman - this is a re-read of one of my favorite books. I wish that more authors would write about WWI- but sheesh, it has been slim pickings. If anyone has any good recommendations for books about WWI, please post them.
Holidays on Ice by David Sedaris- this is re-read as well for book club. We're taking it easy this month.

Yeah. ES&L is REALLY pretentious. It's kind of funny in a really highbrow snotty proper British kind of way. I got it from the library. 1776 is an excellent read but only if you read it in small chunks. McCullough is a good writer, but there is only so much of George Washington I can handle at a time. His book on John Adams was pretty good too - but you have to really enjoy history.

I've also just read a book called "Smashed" by Koren Zailckas. It's pretty disturbing - about teenaged drinking (autobiographical).

Are you interested in mysteries at all in a historical setting? Anne Perry has a WWI series- 3 published and 2 more to come next year. If you google her, you can find out more info.
