I love Baldacci's writing, but I have to admit, Hour game was really rather dull and not worth the read.Just finished two books. HATED one hand enjoyed the other. Although I enjoy reading mysteries by David Baldacci, his book Hour Game was far fetched, interminably long, hand ridiculously misogynistic. Hated it. Then I read a book by Archer Mayor featuring a detective he created named Joe Gunther. The book was called Borderline. Good read. Fast read. I'll read Mayor again.
I'm a big fan of Cornwell. Uhtred's up there with Sharpe as far as interesting characters. His Arthur trilogy is excellent.I’m on the eighth book in the Bernard Cornwell Last Kingdom series. Very well written.
Read this one awhile back and really enjoyed. Actually just watched the Netflix version of it last night. good movie, but like just about all book adaptions it barely scratches the surface of the read.This one is a SERIOUS page turner. Can't wait to pick it up every night. It very much reminds me of The Girl on a Train meets Rear Window. Not done with it yet, but I'll recommend it so far. The writing is very good, love the way this guy writes. These thrillers are often based on continuous plot movement and not so much on literary skill. This one differs in that respect.

My dad was a big fan of the Sharpe series but I never gave it a try. That last kingdom series sounds more into my interest though. I jotted it down for the next trip to the libraryI'm a big fan of Cornwell. Uhtred's up there with Sharpe as far as interesting characters. His Arthur trilogy is excellent.
I've just read the four books in his incomplete American Civil War series, main character Starbuck. The last book ends at Antietam in 1862, doubt he'll ever get to the end of the war in '65.
My family book club (wife and I, and two daughters) is about to start this novel.Just finished "The Lager Queen of Minnesota" by J. Ryan Stradal. EXCELLENT read. It take awhile to get into the beer business, but it is a very accurate portrayal of brewing. Also an ode to Midwestern women and their families.
Odd, no Kindle version (but there IS an Audible). And paperback is $50.Just finished "Westlake Soul" by Rio Youers. First time reading this novel and was completely blown away. A masterclass in storytelling and characterization. Don't remember ever feeling so emotional while reading a book before. There were times where I literally had to will myself not to cry. I know that this book wasn't for everyone on the forum, but for me, this novel was perfection. Definitely a book I will be recommending to everyone who asks for an amazing read.
I didn't know there was a tv show. Don't watch much tv except sports. There was a movie a long time ago with Harrison Ford, I did see that, but it's so long ago I just barely remember the basic premise.The book is so much better than the TV series.
You sure your wife didn't give you Twilight in a Hunger Games cover? She's sneaky.Just read the Hunger Games series with my wife and son, a sort of summer book club kind of thing.
Disappointing IMHO. The first book was excellent, but it seemed like the second was hackneyed and the third was rushed.
And then there was the love triangle thing... Probably just my demographic, but I was trying to figure out whether I was Team Edward or Team Jacob and realized I just didn't give a $&^@.
