I have just finished reading three books by Irish born author John Connelly. I would not recommend his books to just anybody. His stories are psychological thrillers with a lot of very weird cruelty inflicted upon a killer's victims. The protagonist, Charlie Parker, Private eye, is also a strange but gifted man who sees things that others can't see. He gets into the mind of the killers. I am not sure if I will read any more of Connelly's books. A little too disturbing. I have just started another crime novel by Michael Connelly. Hmmmm I wonder if they are related.

The book that Mike Auchard is reading, Ender's_Game by Card, is excellent.

Confederacy_of_Dunces, huh? Sounds like it would hit a little too close to home to most of us for comfortable reading. I wonder how closely it parallels Voltaire's Candide?

State of Fear (Michael Crichton), still plodding thru a reread of War & Peace (about 3/4 way thru) and Job: A Comedy of Errors (I can't remember the author's name). I just picked up the Incantations of Immortality (Piers Anthony) at a garage sale Saturday so I can't wait to dive into those. I haven't read that series in 10 years.
