Finished Corsair and The Silent Sea.  On to The Jungle next and then I start on the Dirk Pitt series.
Corsair was really good.  I really enjoyed The Wrecker too.

The Wrecker was a good one.  I really enjoy Clive Cussler's Isaac Bell series.  A bit like James West and Artemus Gordon meet the 20th century, with actual historic events thrown in for good measure.

Breathing some life back into this thread.

I just finished CyberStorm by Matthew Mather.  Really enjoyed it.

Anyone else reading anything good?

My wife just finished The Tyranny of Dead Ideas by Matt Miller. She stuffed in my face and said I have to read it too. She has never done that before. So that will be my next read starting this weekend.

just finished The Ocean At The End Of The Lane by neil gaiman.

A Hard Boiled Wonderland And The End Of The Word & A Wild Sheep Case by haruki murakami are both great if you are looking for something different.

currently reading both The Devil & Sherlock Holmes by david grann(a collection of his new yorker non fiction stories. fantastic so far) and Gone Girl by gillian flynn(a suspense tale that david fincher will use for his next feature).
cheers.

Finished the Wool omnibus by Hugh Howey.  Just downloaded the Shift omnibus (Wool part 2) and Dust (part 3) into my iPad.  I'm look forward to getting started on them while at the beach at Waipio Valley tomorrow. (I gave myself the rest of the week off for good behavior).
