The Prize by Daniel Yergin
Rate this book
Clear rating
Not the most well-written book in terms of pace and style. Quite hard to plod through.

That said, Yergin and his underlings have done their research, and I like the nitty gritty of it all.

The oil industry is one that, love it or hate it, has had a

Madam Secretary by Madeleine K. Albright
Rate this book
Clear rating
I loved this book. Such fascinating insight into what happened during Albright's time as Secretary of State.

Albright is witty, enormously self-deprecating, and freakishly smart. She's very honest in this book about how her career affected her

Wired by Bob Woodward
Rate this book
Clear rating
Apparently, it's meticulously researched, although some people really take issue with Woodward's characterization of Belushi. I liked the level of detail, even if toward the end, it started reading like a Smoking Gun dossier.

Now, this book was like a

I read this on the recommendation of a friend and then suggested it to my dad. The chief and I had such fun talking about this one. I keep wanting to read it again, so I might just have to buy a copy.

The Lady and the Panda by Vicki Constantine Croke
Rate this book
Clear rating
Disappointing. Love pandas. Love women. But this lady (the actual Lady of the title, not the author) was annoying. Almost didn't finish it.

Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson
Rate this book
Clear rating
Stunning and beautiful. I have always loved the film, and still can't believe it ever got made, but I didn't read the book until just recently. I love Robinson's language and what she does with the landscape. Just haunting.

The Subtle Knife by Philip Pullman
Rate this book
Clear rating
At first, I loved the introduction of Will and the opportunity to get inside other characters. But even though I really enjoyed The Subtle Knife, I couldn't love it as much as the first in this trilogy.

I think my preference for The Golden Compass
