Re: What are you reading?

Dan Brown's Inferno.
The book would be half its size if it didn't have so much bloody Italian in it and the translation that went with it.
It wasn't that good and I guessed what the virus was well before it was mentioned.
4/10

I'm 3/4s of the way through it now, after the crap-fest that way The Lost Symbol I wasn't going to get this but the lure of reading it on my Kindle was too strong.

Re: What are you reading?

Tuf Voyaging - a Sci-Fi book by George R.R. Martin - totally different from Game of Thrones, it is about a space trader who happens to come into possession of a ship capable of changing a planet's ecology & how he uses it to help some of the various colonies he meets.

Re: What are you reading?

James Herbert's Nobody True on my Kindle. Excellent premise of a guy who can have regular out of body experiences but gets murdered whilst out on one and therefore has no 'body' to go back to. He finds things out about his family, friends, wife and even the person who murdered him. Good so far

Sounds a bit like Fluke in a way.

Re: What are you reading?

Peter F Hamilton - Great North Road

A great page turner, all 1104 of them

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Great-North-.../dp/0330521772

When attending a Newcastle murder scene, Detective Sidney Hurst finds a dead North family clone. Yet none have been reported missing. And in 2122, twenty years ago, a North clone billionaire was horrifically murdered in the same manner on the tropical planet of St Libra. So, if the murderer is still at large, was Angela Tramelo wrongly convicted? She never wavered under interrogation, claiming she alone survived an alien attack. Investigating this potential alien threat now becomes the Human Defence Agency’s top priority. St Libran bio-fuel is the lifeblood of Earth’s economy and must be secured. A vast expedition is mounted via the Newcastle gateway, and experts are dispatched to the planet – with Angela Tramelo, grudgingly released from prison. But the expedition is cut off deep within St Libra’s rainforests, and the murders begin. Angela insists it’s the alien, but her new colleagues aren’t sure. Did she see an alien, or does she have other reasons for being on St Libra?

Joyland by Stephen King. Cracking read.

Just finished The Creeping Kelp, I was intrigued by the awful title. Turns out, the awful title was the only intriguing thing about it.
