ONE title only


"The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson.
Not sure if I want to see the film - often find them disappointing after reading the book.

I found "The Book Thief" hard going too and haven't finished it yet.
Saw Marcus Zusac at the "Adelaide Writers Week"
in March - he's a lovely, down-to-earth guy and I decided i must try to finish the book (no great logic there!!)

oh, and another one...

Well, Jo can do it!!!!

"The Slap" by Christos Tsiolkas. Did it with my Book Group. Mixed reactions. It's set in Melbourne and covers lots of modern social issues (also lots of sex and swearing!!)

Good read - American wife

I recently read American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld about the woman who was to become America's First Lady, based loosely on Laura Bush. I really enjoyed it, but not necessarily my favourite book.

Our book group has had a run of poor choices lately, hoping for something really good next week.

Invictus

Recent good read: Invictus (or Playing the Game..old title) by John Carlin, the book behind recent film of the same title.
Really interesting account of the story leading up to the 1995 Rugby World Cup in South Africa and Nelson Mandela's involvement. It's a page turner!

The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho

Just finished it this morning and it's one of those books I ought to have read years ago, or maybe I did read very similar ethos's under a different author(s)......

I know, everybody else probably read it 20 years ago but it does confirm that one should 'listen to one's heart'. BRILLIANT with a beautiful twist/message at the end.
