I finally finished this today at lunch. Discussion to come later, but I certainly won't be following WT Sharpe's example:

That makes two versions of the novel, viewings of two separate movie adaptations, and the reading of one graphic novel; all ingested in the past three weeks. I do believe I'm ready now for the MobileRead Book Club discussion of that book which will start on the 20th.
One time is enough for me.

Next is Holes by Louis Sachar which should be a much quicker read. I need something easy after the last few books I have read.

I finished Hollow World by Michael J. Sullivan. I liked this book a lot. Quite a fascinating take on what might the Earth be like a few thousand years from now.

I'm now re-reading The Shadow Rising by Robert Jordan, the 4th book of The Wheel of Time. Slow start so far, but haven't had much reading time.

Ah, nothing like a really good Liaden story. Just finished the "free" story that Lee&Miller put up on SplinterUniverse.com today Roving Gambler. Excellent Liaden story set on Surebleak. And well over 50 pages in length, so not a short story.

Also just finishing up The Burglar Who Counted The Spoons, by Lawrence Block. Number 11 in the Bernie Rhodenbarr series, and a very enjoyable read, as always. Plus it was a free loan from Amazon Prime.

Definitely quicker and easier. I was quite surprised how close this was to the movie. The movie is probably the closest adaptation to a novel that I have seen.

Next is The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. Not quite my normal type of story, but given the accolades it has received and the good reviews here and elsewhere, I thought I would try it.
