Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife by Eben Alexander. Very interesting and thought provoking. A former non-believer gives scientific proof in regard to brain function why he wasn't dreaming or making up his "visit" to Heaven. Whether a believer or not -- it is an interesting read.

There is both proof against what he wrote and support for it -- but in either case, it makes an interesting read.

Quote:

January 1946: writer Juliet Ashton receives a letter from a stranger, a founding member of the Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. And so begins a remarkable tale of the island of Guernsey during the German occupation, and of a society as extraordinary as its name.

I'm reading against my type - dystopia. But, it's by T. Coraghessan Boyle, A Friend of the Earth, and I'll give it a chance. I may have to give up.
The thing is, he's so good.. sometimes I can learn sentence by sentence.

I've a book in wait that I want to bury my head in, will report later.

I just finished The Casual Vacancy. Out of a dozen or so distinct and complete characters, one decent man died on page two. The other decent character, in a relative sense, died of a heroin overdose shortly after she failed to prevent her three year old brother from drowning while she was screwing in the bushes. In between, we have a cast of gossips, character assassins, rapists, adulterers, child abusers, child neglectors, nasty school kids, and what have you. I recommend this one, but it isn't The Casual Read. Neither was The Grapes of Wrath.

J.K Rowling can be quite versatile

I'm reading The Count of Monte Cristo.

I just want to say, I am thrilled to have found this forum. I've poked around online and found a few book forums that were pretty disappointing. You guys read some great stuff. I saw Life of Crime last night, based on Elmore Leonard's "The Switch". It made me want to read him. I wish Cristo weren't so long, I am wanting to read so many other things, especially after browsing this forum.

Read on!

@raisingirl,
Great to have you here RG
I'd dump the Count and start on some of my main man Elmore's books.
They're a lot more fun. 2 Cents Very Happy

Start with Rum Punch and Netflix the movie version ,Jackie Brown.

3:10To Yuma is included in a great new collection of his early work.

Let me hear if anyone else has read Leonard's Djibuti, the least of his I've liked, but I still care about.

@raisingirl,
I feel as though I should read The Count of Monte Cristo, but mostly because everyone else has.

Hey, welcome.

@roger,
I never read the Count of Monte Cristo either... Should I get worried? Smile

@panzade,
I promised a friend that I'd read COMC, so I'm going to finish. It's a pretty good read, though I do prefer more modern fare.

Thanks for the welcomes.

I'm in the middle of reading The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.

She's only written 3 books, and she makes you wish she'd written a dozen more.
