Finished Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and am now half way through John Jakes' The Bastard.

I have Moloka'i on my "short list" which means I'm likely to pick it in the next few months.

I enjoyed it a great deal and would rate it "very good". Now on to another contemporary: James Grippando's Money to Burn . My first by this a...

I finally finished Shogun. It was good but I never loved it like I was expecting to, or as much as I did Tai-pan. Now I'm very close to finishing Eighty-Dollar Champion which is good, not great though the story is a heart-warming one. There are a lot of interesting things but overall I haven't been ...

I've recently finished The Time of Singing and My Name is Mary Sutter. Both very good. I'm still working on Shogun - a little over half way now.

[quote=""MLE""]Not my usual, but somebody who knows I like animal POVs gave me Dog On It, a contemporary crime novel that was downright hilarious.

I loved Dog On It! Looking forward to the rest in the series. I remember smiling for weeks afterwards as I thought of it frequently.

Finished Vanished by Joseph Finder. Mostly fun and interesting, though I found the ending not that satisfying.

Just started Shogun so it will probably be a long while before I post my next one. :)

[quote=""LoobyG""]You're in for a treat Javagirl, 'A Town like Alice' is great stuff, do post what you think! :) [/quote] Well, I'm a little over half way and absolutely loving it! It is a treat. Will probably be my 4th 5* book of 2011 (out of about 32 so far this year). Are Shute's other books this...

Should be finishing Connie Willis' To Say Nothing of the Dog tonight or tomorrow. Thinking I might start A Town Like Alice next. Never read it (or any by Shute) before.
