    ^ I read that, and recommend it as well. Also, Hollinghurst's The Folding Star.

    The Lost City of Z

    Amazon.com: The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon (9780385513531): David Grann: Books



    The true story of a daring explorer in the 1920's and his obsession with finding an ancient but advanced and almost mythical society deep in the Amazon. The explorer (and his expedition party of two, one his son) mysteriously disappeared.

    The author picks up the trail from there and conducts his own investigation.

    The book was one helluva thrilling ride, interspersing the explorer's trail with the author's tracing of his steps.

    The very last line of the book gave me goose bumps, as I realized the implications of what the author ultimately discovered.

    I'm not currently reading anything (but have a new Ken Follett book calling me, since I'm unemployed I will get it read). However, my 11 year old is reading Jane Eyre, fantastic story.
    Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.

    The Same Embrace- Michael Lowenthal. It's very good so far. I read his Charity Girl and enjoyed that as well.

    I just finished Water For Elephants which was a great book. I think I will read Sarah Gruen's three other books.

    Even though I can't stand Robert Pattinson, I am sure I will go see the movie version of Water For Elephants.

    Just finished Carolly Erickson's Rival to the Queen. I'm a sucker for royal historical fiction.

    About 3/4 through Greg Iles' 24 Hours. It's okay. Not the best or worst I've ever read.

    2666, by chilean novelist roberto bolaņo.
    just started it so can't really say how it is so far but i've heard it's excellent and comes heavily recommended, including by a couple of writer friends.

    My sister in law read this and loved it as did all my friends, however they advised me not to read it because of some animal content that I won't like. I'm not sure what, but I trust them.
