Currently reading Jane Harper's latest. The Dry and the Wet (Force of Nature), so now for the Cold (the Survivors). Always well written and entertaining.
Any suggestions? Always like an insiders view of the world. Someone who has experienced what they are writing about.(less)

Not for the faint hearted. Cloud Atlas on steroids. Two many stories/ people/ time swaps to keep me wanting to read it. Probably OK if you persevered and read it in a short time frame. Was a DNF for me

My first Christian White book left me a little disappointed. The story wasn't bad, it just felt like something written for an assignment; written for necessity rather than desire.
The setting felt more USA rather than Australia, perhaps trying for tha

“It was an interminably difficult job when talking to non-scientists. They did not want to know about the ifs and buts, nor the pedantic small difference between processes. Any hole in the ground was a sinkhole.”
Andy McGee, Sublime Murder

“They worship Anu, the god of all the gods, who gives their kings a divine right to rule, to collect possessions for themselves and take slaves. It is not a system of harmony with nature or equality between beings.”
