Since it has been a long time from my last post (more or less two months) — not including the one from yesterday — I thought it might be prudent to give a short overview of what I’ve read up to this point.
‘Artemis Fowl’ was the last book I seem to have commented on here. Naturally, after reading Eoin Colfer’s work, I have taken up quite a few new ones as well as a number of ones I knew from the past. I have tried to write them out in a list so that there would be an overview somewhere, and here you go.
- ‘1Q84: Part 3’, Haruki Murakami
- ‘The Client’, John Grisham
- ‘Arctic Drift’, Clive Cussler
- ‘Tarnished Knight’, Jack Campbell
- ‘Guardian’, Jack Campbell
- ‘Black Wind’, Clive Cussler
- ‘Captain Vancouver’, E.C. Coleman
- ‘The Glorious First of June’, Sam Willis
- ‘Starter for Ten’, David Nicholls
- ‘Diamond Queen’, Andrew Marr
I probably have a number of things to say about the majority of these books, and I will do my best to get round them (or the memorable ones at least) at some point in the near future.
What I have also been reading though are the old books, the ones I was supposedly familiar with. These are the ones I have revisited since March:
- The Empire trilogy by Raymond Feist and Janny Wurts
- ‘The Hobbit’, J.R.R. Tolkien
- ‘One Day’, David Nicholls
- ‘The Madman’, Kahlil Gibran [And I know I am not consistent with the spelling of his name.]
- ‘Siddhartha’, Hermann Hesse
- ‘Into the Black’ series by E. Currie
And I am of a mind that some of these deserve a look into as well. It always does astound me how ‘The Hobbit’ changes when I read it again… but I hope to get back to that in the not too distant future.
I’ll do my best to comment on these books I’ve mentioned, but I am sure some will be left out. I would only hope that the better ones will be the ones included.
Until that time, then…
