    Just started "East of Eden" this weekend. Wow. Can't put it down. I thought Grapes of Wrath and Winter of our discontent were good, but wow.

    Before that, "Guadalcanal" and "Sea of Thunder" – was on a WWII Pacific theatre kick.

    Last book: a re-read of Kurt Vonnegut's Cat's Cradle. I'm not sure how many times I've read it now, at least four. Current book is Hawaii, by James Michener. Always liked Michener.

    Just started reading "Killing the Rising Sun: How the United States Ended World War II"

    I recently finished reading "Sink 'em All: Submarine Warfare in the Oacific"

    These books are about an era when the US had built a truly top notch military and the country was able and willing to do what was necessary to win a war.

    I'm on my library's waiting list for this one. The only thing as good as a new Davenport book (or Flowers), is Bosch.

    Walter Isaacson's "Einstein, His Life and Universe, the basis for Genius". I read it to and from Hawaii last month and a second time when I got home. The book is pretty readable if you're familiar with relativity but certainly obtuse if you're not. It described how Einstein developed his theories through thought experiments and how the math was developed later with the help of others. The book went deeply into Einstein's conundrum of insisting on a deterministic universe in the face of the developing probabilistic theories of quantum mechanics. The book is a great follow on for those who contributed to the "Was Einstein wrong?" thread a few months back.

    I never thought i'd ever write this, but "twisted prey" was not too good. pretty much everything in it was predictable, and not very interesting. this makes 29 lucas davenport novels, I hope mr Sanford/camp isn't getting burned out.

    Currently reading First They Killed My Father. Story of a girl who gets swept up in the chaos of Pol Pot's Khmer Rogue civil war in Cambodia in the 70's.

    Its for a book club I'm involved in here, and I didn't think I'd like it but its pretty interesting.
