    ^ Rabbit Cake was excellent!

    I started this one yesterday and am 45 percent through (kindle). Goodreads says 457 pages!  A post-apocalyptic page turner.

    Field Gray, by Philip Kerr

    Ive seen this series mentioned here over the years, but never read one. The series is about a German policeman who does not like Hitler or the Nazis during the years before, during, and after World War II as he does what he needs to survive and not feel horrified by what he does. So far Im liking it, though I dont find it gripping.

    Daughters of Twilight

    The special tactical teams had been trained for normal encounters with flesh and blood not supernatural beings. A quiet little city in the Midwest town of Waterloo, Iowa is about to come to life with angels! When an earthquake measuring seven hits Waterloo, a huge black pyramid shaped tower pushes its way up through a corn field in Blackhawk County spinning the city into the national spot light. Its thought that the Black Tower is dormant, but when special tactical teams are sent inside to investigate, special team member Dane Coles is confronted by the impossiblea beautiful creature that has been cursed and cast down into oblivion within the Garden of Eden, using the Black Tower as a doorway to the surface

    Enjoy the ride! What a different experience from reading the books over a twenty year period.

    I've been reading Philip Kerr on and off for a few years. I really like him. Well, mostly the background and famous people he intergrates into the stories (albeit, sometimes stretching how they relate to the story). As a person who is intrigued by the Weimar Republic and the political and social conditions in Germany between the wars, this fits nicely into my reading interests.

    I haven't posted in this thread--until now, that is. But better late than never.

    Just picked up two books last week:

    Fiction: Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice. It has been remarkable so far. It's amazing how he can mesh insights about life with the seeming improbabilities of his settings, not to mention the difficulty of the subjects he opts to write about. No one goes back in time so much with a firm foot planted in the zeitgeist; he also does the inverse, and it all feels organic. At its best, the book is enjoyable, sad, and rewarding at the same time.

    Non Fiction: Seeds and Backman's Horizons: Exploring the Universe. Combines epistemology and metaphysics with intro-level astronomy. Although it focuses mainly on what makes astronomical knowledge possible and the aspects that constitute the "astronomical method" as opposed to focusing on "knowledge in itself." Nonetheless, terribly interesting for a layman such as yours truly.
