    Last really good book that I read was "The Impressionist" by Hari Kunzru.

    I also recommend "All Is Vanity" by Christina Schwartz.

    I have read "We Were The Mulvaneys" and thought it was well written but very melodramatic. I disliked "The Corrections" and thought it was way overhyped.

    Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind. If you like fantasy, this one is da bomb!
    To listen... means that someone else is right.

    A Midnight Clear by William Wharton was a terrific read. It's about a WWII rifle squadron that has an unusual and gut-wrenching encounter with a German squadron in the days before the Battle of the Bulge.

    firegirl, I liked The Lovely Bones as well. Alice Sebold also wrote a book called "Lucky" which is totally different, but very good.

    I read "Lucky". It was really hard to read the first few pages; it was very graphic & disturbing. But I figured if she could live through it & write about it, then I can read it! I still haven't read "The Lovely Bones" though.

    Holly, I'm about halfway. I just keep waiting for it to pick up! I have a feeling it's not going to. I picked it up because it was an Oprah's book club selection, and I've liked several of the others.

    I don't know if I'll make it through or not. I don't give up easily, but if it takes me more than a week or two, I'm done.

    Firegirl, I loved The Jester. I love all of his books that I've read, but I haven't read that many. Just four or five. What is The Lovely Bones, and who is it written by?

    I usually wait for someone to comment on an author before I try someone new. If anyone has a suggestion, post it! I'm always up for a good read.
