    Third one (Xenocide) is my favorite so far. Great examination of environmental ethics, as well as a fresh take on ontology & metaphysics, and faith vs. reason.

    The Will Robie series from Baldacci is pretty good. I like Silva's slightly better, but these are definitely worth the read.

    I knew OSC was a Mormon, but it wasn't apparent in his writing until Xenocide. Still great books. Fun fact: one of my professors learned to sing tenor from OSC since they had attended the same temple.

    I was unaware of that, but it all makes sense now.

    Started The Martian last night. Going to give these OSC books a look when I finish it. Thanks for the tips!

    Really enjoyed The Martian! Has me looking forward to the movie. I can see Matt Damon as Mark. Will have to read other books by the author.

    Re-reading The Journey is the Reward, about Steve Jobs. Book was published about 1988, so it covers Jobs' life up to the point. Woz was (is) a frickin genius! Jobs just wanted to make a buck. They made a good partnership. Great read.

    Finished "The Bone Tree" by Greg Iles. Not as good as "Natchez Burning", but good. Greg is from Natchez, and most of his recent books are about the area with most of it occurring in Concordia Parish.

    Looks like a tv series is happening. The actors look a little older than I would have expected.
