  • Don't skip The Windup Girl. You won't be disappointed. The pace isn't all that quick, but it starts off interesting and keeps you until the end. It's one of my favorite Science Fiction novels.

    I'm not sure why, but post-globalisation type worlds always entertain me. You get to see different events unfold from the eyes and views of all sorts of different characters. Definitely check it out.

    • this is what the kids in the 10th grade class I am doing student teaching in will be reading:

      As I Lay Dying, In Cold Blood and The Joy Luck Club

      So, I'll have to read all those in the coming weeks.

      • I have a monster 10.5 hr flight to Egypt coming up, I need a few book recs.

        Something not too hard to read and entertaining, but still good and not just strictly a page turner with little depth.
        When I eat, it is the food that is scared.

              If by little you mean 5 years, yes.

                          Into Thin Air - Jon Krakauer

                          A fantastic read about the 1996 Mt. Everest disaster. First-hand storytelling about what happened and also an psychoanalysis of what makes a man want to climb into the "Death Zone" at 20,000+ feet.


                          Freakonomics & Superfreakonomics - Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner

                          Economical analysis of society, often to a contrary counterpoint to accepted common wisdom. What do prostitudes have in common with department store Santa Clauses'? Did legalized Abortion end the crime wave? Why are real estate agents like the KKK? Etc.

                          Einstein: His Life and Universe - Walter Isaacson

                          While it does touch on his revolutionary science, this narrative masterpiece really brings this once in a lifetime figure to life. A vivid portrayal of the 20th century's most famous and influential man.

                          • I have recently read:

                            The Godfather by Mario Puzo
                            Nine Stories by JD Salinger
                            Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger

                            and Ender's Game and Shadow by Orson Scott Card. All fantastic.
