Book Recommendations

Three times this week I have been asked about book recommendations (I hope you have as cool and bookish friends as I do). Anyway, each time I found myself repeating the same titles, so I thought I’d share here as well.

Tonight, I finished Pearl’s The Technologists which left me a little flat. It was fantastic in the sense of time, place and setting, but just lacked some of the “thrill” part that was there when I read his “The Dante Club”.

The last really well written book I read was, Towles’ The Rules of Civility.
I enjoyed Holmqvist’s The Unit as well, but for different reasons.

I also recommend reading Justin Cronin’s The Passage, to get ready for The Twelve which comes out later this year. It is so so good. I mean like REALLY good.

I recently went through quite a run of fiction, so I am thinking about picking up Bryson’s At Home. But I may go sci-fi with Russell’s The Sparrow. We’ll see.

How about you?

What are you recommending to friends?
