American Gods,’ by Neil Gaiman. It takes a lot of the gods from mythology that are in danger of being extinct because no one believes in them and asks how they would vie for the attention of Americans to stay alive?”

“I just started ‘Eat, Pray, Love,’ by Elizabeth Gilbert. It’s about a woman who travels to find herself.”

The Great Gatsby,’ F. Scott Fitzgerald. I thought it was a good critique of what I guess people would call the American dream in the sense that it shows how elusive it can be.”

The Witch of Portobello,’ by Paulo Coelho. It’s about many different people telling a woman’s life story and how she impacted their lives, for better or worse, from their own point of views.”

The Swarm,’ by Frank Schatzing. It’s basically a science fiction novel about the ocean and the life therein rebelling against mankind.”

Just finished The Sanctuary by Raymond Khoury. Quite an imaginative writer.
Now I am reading The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant. I love any fiction with an accurate blend of historical fact. This book is about Florence in the 15th century when the priest Savonarola went overboard in his radical preaching and caused so much art treasure to be burned in the main piazza of that city. Ironic that he was also burned in that piazza because he would not cease his raving on orders from the Pope in Roma.

Just finished "The Omnivore's Dilemma" by Michael Pollan and can't recommend it enough. Amazing book. Now I'm working my way through "First Among Sequels" by Jasper Fforde and the latest Tales of the Otori book.
