It's not that there are a million characters. There are two with half a million names they are referred to each.

I loved this book and am really looking forward to the sequel. I might read it again actually, now that you've reminded me of it. I have a bit of an obsession with centuries old masonry & sculpture etc. so I really enjoyed the details of the cathedral building

I'm going to dig it out this weekend actually, Thanks.

It's been on my "to read" list for a while, but glad to hear it recommended by someone else.

I just finished an AMAZING book that really spoke to me. And made me want to move to Italy. Or maybe Bali.

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. It's about the author's quest to find herself and some spiritual guidance after her divorce and subsequent depression.

It was funny, it was moving, it was just SO GOOD.

Then I read Meg Cabot's Queen of Babble, which was a lot of fun. I love Meg, but some of her recent books have been sub-par. I was really pleased to read this one and enjoy it so much.

Now I'm in the middle of the latest Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants book, which is, as they all have been, a delightful read. Ann Brashares does a great job of writing young adult books with characters that feel real and likable.

Thank you for bumping this thread back up!

Has anyone read Zorba the Greek? I'm about halfway through right now. I'd heard so much about how it was such a positive, life-loving book. All I really see in it so far is a helluva lot of chauvinism.

i just bought that book at borders this weekend and read it in a day, it was great, and really came full circle


i also picked up princeton review's "361 best colleges" and biology and global history review books for the state tests at the end of the year the review books are boring, but the college book is engrossing there's so many amazing colleges within a few hours of where i live now, which is really important, i don't want to go too far away i always say the farthest i'll go is seven hours away [by car], or to europe

I finally finished "The World is Flat". Very interesting read. I think this book should be a mandatory read for all college kids, and even high school kids so they could understand the world they are living in. One way of getting every person to read it

Now I am reading "Christ the Lord" by Anne Rice. She never fails to be a good writer. I'm halfway done with it. Its a short and simple read; I'll be done with it soon. After that would be "White Oleander" by Janet Fitch.

I'm reading Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy. I'm reading one of his titles a month until I have read all that he has written. So far, 5 down, with The Road probably being the best of the bunch, despite it now being an Oprah book.

Are you talking about the one by Geraldine Brooks? It is very good. But I think there are some better books on the topic. First, it was published in 1995, and I found it to be a little bit dated by the time I read it. She also covered a lot of different topics, so it left me wanting to know more, which can be a good or bad thing, but in her case, I wish she had gone more in depth with some of the stuff she wrote about. But overall, it is well worth reading.
