    +1 I love Edmund White! I'm actually friends with him on Facebook. He's one of the nicest guys on the planet, and his writing is incredible and life affirming.

    Rereading the shadow hunter by michael prescott.

    Basically the main character is Abby Sinclair she's a personal security consultant and she mainly deal with stalkers... her methods is to "stalk the stalkers" intrude in their personal lives and bring them down if they're a threat.

    great read for those who like psychological thrillers.

    billbos saidfinishing Song Of Achilles (Madeline Miller) and started Casual Vacancy (J.K.)


    I read Song of Achilles a couple of months ago, and I liked it, even though the prose sometimes seemed like something out of Judy Blume. But I appreciated that it was written from the perspective of Patroclus, and there were parts that were heartbreaking.

    Currently, I'm reading 1493, by Charles C. Mann. It is a fascinating 360 degree perspective on when the world first truly became global: namely the arrival of Cristobal Colon (aka "Columbus") in 1493 in the New World and the reverberations--politically, socially, economically and ecologically--that still affect our world today.

    I feel the same way about Achilles - her style is sort of juvenile - reads more like a poorly written YA novel. But the story was good and it was nice to read a book with strong gay characters for once.
