In the middle of yet another Clive Cussler. Good action as usual.

Aside from that, I can't recommend highly enough a book i just finished. It's terrific!

I finally got this because I loved World War Z. I'm about half way through and I've gotta say I'm pretty disapointed. I'm just now getting to the survival stories so I'm sure it will get better.

Probably the most emotionally draining book I've ever read.

I finished two books so far this month, and both were very disappointing.

Loved his first book (The Last Templar), but Khoury struck out with this one:

And now for You've Been Warned by James Patterson (can't find a good pic to post). This is probably the worst book I've ever read. Only for it is an extremely fast read and I was on a plane, I wouldn't have finished it. If you have a half finished novel somewhere in the back drawer, pick it up and finish it, because if this crap can get published, anything can. With any luck, Patterson will put his name on your work too!

GatorDeb, can you tell me if Critcal by Robin Cook is any good. The last book I read by him, Marker, was horrible IMO.

I'm reading Candy Freak by Steve Almond and have eaten more candy in the past few weeks than I have in years. Subliminal messages are a mess.

GatorDeb 09-10-08 01:40 PM

Sure I'll let you know :D I LOVE Robin Cook, but his books can be corny sometimes. I'm still on the first page. It goes something like this: "Jack never really thought about his knee. How it held his weight as he worked. He never appreciated his knee as it absorbed the pounding from moving from the left side of the room to the right side of the room." I.e. he writes like a four-year-old sometimes. If I can get through that, maybe the story will be good :)

finished Legends by Robert Littell today and will be starting on Gomorrah by Roberto Saviano next.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a HUGE Cook fan. I've read 17 of his books. The writing is simplistic, but the intrigue and stories are always interesting and fun, with that medical slant to them. "Marker" was my first real disappointment from him, I just couldn't get into it for some reason. But I'll never quit him completely. :)

Now I'm reading...

I love medical fiction and he's my favorite author. My favorite was the fertility clinic one and the one that starts with the eye in the refrigerator. The food poisoning one was my most hated because it was a non-ending... the narrative just stopped, but the story didn't. Man, was I pissed :D I've read quite a few of his books. I read Marker and actually liked it quite a bit :D The food poisoning one was the only one I haven't really liked. I haven't read 18, I'd say more like 10. The cloning one was chilly -eek-

I have a problem: I start 10X the amount of books I finish... sigh :)
