Life of Pi by Yann Martel is simply one of the most wonderful books I have ever read. Starts a little slow, but then just erupts. I could not put this book down. Would highly recommending reading the book before seeing the movie!
Picked up Buried Secrets after enjoying Joseph Finder's earlier works. I liked his earlier novels because of their business references & corporate ties, and this was quite a departure -- a full fledged detective novel. Didn't think I would like it at first, but then got caught up in an intricately woven story with strong characters. Not my favorite Finder novel, but a top rated one. Does this guy write anything bad? Not yet -- just downloaded Vanished to my iPhone, so we'll see!
