Cat's Cradle is great, i read it years ago and still think back to it at times.

I just finished all the available/released books in the WOOL series by Hugh Howey.

 

It's really a great story. (I liked it anyway.)

"The Road" is a good book...hope that you enjoy it...

Started with Jim Butcher's "Dresden Files" series a little while ago and am about to complete the third in the series. I'm not ging to continue though - I really liked the first book, but then the entire thing turned from detective-story-involving-magic into John Rambo the vampire slayer. Quite sad, really, there was some potential...

I'm reading the 5th book of the series right now and I can safely say that the first one is still the best. It sets out with a 'film-noir' feel (for lack of a better term) in the first book and goes on with more fantasy stuff which isn't as interesting in my opinion.

My thoughts exactly. I read a lot of classic detective stories, and so I really enjoyed the first book. But the 2nd and 3rd are just pointless strings of meaningless action - about the fantasy equivalent to a cop story that consists of nothing but car chases and gunfights.

It's a real shame - I thought that Butcher had a real talent to make his characters come alive, which was one of the reasons why I enjoyed the first book quite a bit.

I've been meaning to read this for a while but I keep forgetting about it.  I'll throw it on the wish list now.

I highly recommend this book too.... very strong story. And the ending.... you really had to read this book. I'm crying softly when reading the ending. Beautifully written.
