Polished off three more books so far this month:
"Reckless Abandon" was a wreck. Formulaic dialogue and plots
"Vertical Run" was a little stronger. Kinda reminded me of Die Hard. The book was published in 1995 and on the book jacket it said the movie rights were sold, but I don't think that ever came to fruition (at least a movie by the same title).
"Snow Falling on Cedars"
I'd say out of the four books I've read this month so far, that "Captain Saturday" remains the top one - a well-written book that makes you think on the priorities in your life. Also upon the way you've constructed things and how life can be fragile and challenging (would you have the guts to rebuild your life if it was taken away from you?).
Got two more books in my queue: "Code to Zero", by Ken Follett [NOT a coding book] and "Life of Pi", by Yann Martel.
