    Re: What are you reading?

    I'm listening to Harlan Coben's Promise Me on audiobook. I'm enjoying the story, and I love Myron Bolitar's character. THe thing I'm not enjoying is the narration by the author, he has a very strong Jersey (I think) accent and all the characters sound the same. I wish he (and Stephen King) would leave the narration to the professionals.

    Well, the book is great, but I never get audio books probably because of that reason. BTW, I did see the author in person and the accent is not that strong. It is however made so much more endearing as he is one of the funniest authors I have ever heard speak. His sense of humor is terrific.

    Just finished "Sundays at Tiffany's" by James Patterson - not the typical Patterson I am used to but it was ok I guess; as in I finished it (although I did put it down twice).

    I am about to start "One Fifth Avenue" by Candace Bushnell - I was the first to request it at the library and it just came in.

    Re: What are you reading?

    I like Harlan Coben a lot.

    I read Sunday's at Tiffany's about a month ago and now can't even remember what it's about. I guess it must have left a good impression on me.

    Patterson has lost a lot. I loved him in the beginning, but he's just trading on his name now and letting other people write the books.

    Re: What are you reading?

    I'm about 2/3 of the way through "The House at Riverton" by Kate Morton, and it's excellent. Well-written, it's a mystery about something tragic that happened with an English family in post WWI England, although I haven't found out what yet. It's from the perspective of their maid, told when she's in her 90's. I'm not sure how I found it; I had it bookmarked on Amazon, probably found it through their "Customers who bought this bought that" feature while look at something else, and then it was on the bargain rack at Barnes and Noble. But I recommend it.

    Sunday's = little rich girl, invisible friend.........
    I agree that he is cashing in on his name; the writing did not feel his influence.

    One Fifth Avenue was enjoyable, not having ever read Sex in the City I was not sure what the writing style would be like. Although it was obvious how it would end, sometimes that's alright. The characters were likeable or hateable as the case may be......
    Just finished an older book by Amanda Quick - "Mystique" with a medieval setting. I surprised myself by enjoying it.
