Rain Storm

Barry Eisler

( 2005 ) ISBN: 978-045121550

In the final book of the series, at the time I read it, things come full circle with John and his romantic interest. The back story is interesting and the assassinations in this one are down to a science. For the first time, John kills someone I truly feel sorry for, a young guy in the wrong place at the wrong time. Call it Karma, he pays the price. Again, enjoy it for the descriptive narrative.

Best After

A Workout

Leviathan Wakes

James S.A. Corey

The first book in the Expanse series by James S.A. Corey. It bills itself as a space drama and I delivers on a massive scale.

Wool

Hugh Howey

For once science fiction that happens under ground instead of outer space. A pretty good book that focuses more on people and less on technology, almost to a fault. Absolutely earns the right to be in the top hundred science fiction books ever written.

The Pleasure Of My Company

Steve Martin

Who knew Steve martin wrote books? Even better, who knew they were a pleasure to read. This book is light and feel good.

Stephen King

Stephen King's book about time travel and the assassination of JFK by Lee Oswald is very good writing applied to a very poor and tired plot. Also was he paid by the CIA to write this as fictional propaganda?
