And I think King's best may be the enthralling and beautiful 11.22.63.

Agreed, if he'd cut the romance bit by about 150 pages. I skipped a lot in the high school middle chapters.  :)

I wouldn't even bother with Painted Caves; nothing happens apart from going round looking at loads of painted caves. Can't believe she's the same woman who wrote the brilliant CLan of the Cave Bear.

I'm beginning to suspect she wasn't. Or, that she had a lot of help that is no longer around. I know of three writers who's work all a sudden went south right after their best buddy writer friend died. And what about Harper Lee? Best buds with Truman Capote...and never wrote anything other than To Kill a Mockingbird.

I've just finished Dan Brown's Inferno. I don't care if he is a bad writer (in others' eyes) In mine, he isn't. I totally enjoyed the book. So there! heh heh. B

Just finished Worth Dying For by Lee Child. It's only the second book of his I've read, and I can't believe I hadn't tried any of his stuff before. Easily my favourite thriller writer now.

World Crafts  Puppets by Meryl Doney.  When my creativity hits I never know what form it will take.  The book just called out to me. lol

Admiral Collingwood, Nelson's Own Hero by Max Adams. Biography (but you guessed that) and very good read.
