Thank you. I do like historical mystery series (I just finished the Maisie Dobbs series which although set @ 1930 has a big connection to WWI). I will be sure to check out your recomendation.

I just finished reading the first 2 Maisie Dobbs. Loved them. Now onto the spy novel quoted above for a change of pace.

I'm currently readin Michael Crichton "Next". I'm close to half way, and I'll say it's a dissapointment.

I love Crichton, he is a phenomneal author, but this book itn't. It has way too many subplots and character. Also, he is becoming more of a teacher than a novel writer. I liked his last book, state of fear, because it was unique. "Next" just follows with state if fears "teacher-ish style". One unique book is enough, but don't go changing yor style like that. Go back to writing fun novel's man....

I got tired of short stories and finally decided to start a novel I´m reading "The sportswriter", by Richard Ford. 50 pages and I love it. If I feel the same about it 346 pages later I think I´ll read the whole trilogy during my holidays ("Independence day" and "The Lay of the Land ").

Did you enjoy it? I couldn´t stop reading it after the first 20 pages. I wouldn´t say I loved it, but it really trapped me. And the investigation and descriptions McEwan did about neurology and anatomy are excellent

I know someone who absolutely loves The Alchemist.

As for me, I just finished reading Jane Eyre . *sigh*

The Alchemist is a nice one, but reading more than one of his books might want you to commit suicide T_T

All Coelho's books are kind the same stuff. Just go to the psychoanalyst

I just finished reading Tom Lanoye's Het Derde Huwelijk (the third marriage) and currently, I'm reading Sue Townsend's Adrian Mole series.

I usually have a few comic books as well around the house.
At the moment:
- The Calvin and Hobbes Lazy Sunday book
- Guust Flater (Gaston Lagaffe) n°6
- Jérôme K. Jérôme
