And a hearty hello to all our newer members. Sorry it's been so quiet around here.

So, we don't generally do book reviews here, but everyone once in a while I ask people if they've read something really extraordinary lately, a book worth talking about. I just read two of them-- both sequels to other books. My reviews of the sequels and the books that preceded them are here: http://bookaddict42.livejournal.com/1993.html and here: http://bookaddict42.livejournal.com/2073.html

Has anyone else read something truly excellent of late? Please feel free to share reviews, links, pics, amount of sleep you lost while reading... you name it!

Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. This is one of those books that has been popping up before me at every bookstore I've visited, daring me to pick it up so I finally gave in.

Best reading-related decision of the year ;)

Additionally, I recommend The Sly Company of People Who Care by Rahul Bhattacharya for its awesome title and narration. The Girl in the Garden by Kamala Nair should also do the trick if you're looking for a quick fix on family drama and mystery.
