Let's please keep the discussion on topic. Thanks, everyone.
Set in 1914. Written in 1982.
Stephen King, my guilty pleasure..."The Outsider" is, of course, a supernatural murder mystery. A loosely connected continuation of the "Mr. Mercedes" series. I loved it!
A different topic for Follett...genetics research.
Kind of creepy but a good read. Working back in time,
to find identical twins with different behavior and parents.
Published in 1997.
Quite appropriate for the audiophiliac community!
Next on my continuing Ken Follett list...engaging story
about theft of Ebola virus from a Scottish drug company.
Set in 1958...early days of the CIA.
A great plot of spy vs. spy...
the bad guys are kept secret a long time.
Cancer Ward by Solzhenitsyn is really great so far. Highly recommended.
I heard that book is great - thx for the idea - I've not read any Solzhenitsyn and am running low on Folletts...
Story of a commune leader who tries to cause
earthquakes using a seismic vibrator, so the state
will cancel a dam project that would flood their valley.
Great character development.
OK, so this one has been on my to read list for over twenty years. It made it to the head of the class recently when it hit on the amazon top list of books ordered by those deployed to Iraq.
Set in Indochina under the French, this is an unapologistic first hand account of brutal warfare which may or may not be a true accounting of actions that happened there. The fact that it is as conterversial as the old Sven Hassel novels makes this almost a must read for conflict afficionados. There are better books on the subject, which in fact the author references in his own tomebut I must say this one bears reading simply for the impact it has on current troops. Much like Winged Victory has it's hallowed spot with the aviators. this one has found its mark with the ground pounders. Wether true or false it has made its mark.
Not for the faint of heart.
"Master and Margarita" is the final product of the outstanding Russian prose writer and playwright Mikhail Afanasievich Bulgakov.
The promise contained in the pages of the book - "your novel will bring you more surprises" - was justified completely: the master's visionary novel about the devil written by the Master was perhaps one of the most mysterious, amazing and most read books of the 20th century! Many words and expressions from this work entered the modern lexicon, and the characters with their reality eclipsed the really existing citizens.
I'm reading Matt Parker's "Things to make and do in the Fourth Dimension" and really enjoying it. Also I'm currently slogging my way through a webnovel group called "The Deathworlders" and heavily recommend it if you're in the mood for some good sci-fi.
