    Sprinco- I feel ya on FWTBT...not my favorite Hemingway but It does get better the more you read. Hemingway is like tequilla minus the hang-over.

    other than the new s.k. (very, very good) all my recent reads are older books: recently finished a vampire book called 'blood kin' by richard kelly - not too bad in a b-movie sort of way; richard laymons 'into the fire' very good, of course; and am now well into mark frost's 'the 6 messiahs' - a sequel of sorts to his great 'the list of 7'.

    The Night Eternal is part of a vampire trilogy. It's the last book in The Strain trilogy. They were all great books but I think the first book, The Strain, was the best.

    Just started 'Port Mortuary' by Patricia Cornwell last night. I am so glad she's gone back to 'first person' in her writing! I didn't like very much her last few Scarpetta books for the simple fact that she went all 'third person' on us. It totally changed how we viewed the characters and IMHO it wasn't in a good way.

    Hi, Kingricefan-

    I hadn't realized that Cornwell switched her POV from 1st to 3rd person (I really should delve deeper into the series!)
    Anyway, thank you, I appreciate the insight.

    She switched POV about 3 or 4 books ago. It was discomforting the first time. She did it to open up the characters (after all, how can Scarpetta know what the motives are in, say, Lucy's head???), but it just didn't work for me. I like Scarpetta, I want to know what she's thinking and feeling. I like the others too, but it's been Scarpetta's POV from the beginning, why change that? So far, Port Mortuary is great!!!
