I don't know if I can bring myself to finish reading Angels & Demons. Here's a guy who is writing about stuff that would take tons of knowledge and research. He's got Illuminati, history, art, religion, and some damned complex science. Then his characters are being searched by the elite Swiss Guard, who is satisfied they are not a threat after listening for a dial tone on the woman's cell phone. A dial tone. On a cell phone. I don't think I can buy into the rest of the book.

Just finished "Blade Dancer", I put it on par with her other books from her StarDoc series, utilizing the same universe. An easy read. 3 out of 5.

Pretty funny stuff. His essay on Christmas is worth the price of the book.

Bought Big Fish by Daniel Wallace. Always wanted to see the movie, so I figured the book had to be pretty good. It's an easy read and quite enjoyable book. Almost done and will either get back to Da Vinci Code or Siddhartha.
