Steve Berry did it again. His story is great, characters flawed and yet perfect. His descriptions put you where the action is. Quite simply he is the best.
Paul Christopher’s Templar Conspiracy held true to his Templar Legacy. Very contrived, with conversation between the main characters desperate to sound main stream and yet totally missing the mark, this book bordered on the surreal in its complete ignorance of military and security operations and completely lumbered through far too many story lines to really crystallize into one solid story.

In the end I am going 2 1/2 bananas, although I loved the globe trotting and history, the story lacked in an a tangible hook the reader sort of way. Thoughts?

The story definitely had a female struggle theme as women blazed a trail in the worlds of geology and paleontology. Speaking of the two main characters and the over all plight of women throughout periods of subjugation in the past.
In the end despite the book not being a personally engrossing piece it was still a very well written story and educational as well. I give it 3 1/2 bananas!

I often start and bounce from book to book. Sometimes juggling 3 or 4 books. I'm wondering how many people do this type of juggling as well.
It doesnt seem like I slowed down does it? But a few pages here and there is slowing down for me.

This is the 5th in a series, but I didnt realize that at the time I grabbed it. A quick read and interesting for those who truly like history.

How much more snow will I see this year? One more flake is two too many.
I hate snow.
It is unfortunate that Mr Larsson passed away so young. His writing reflected deep beliefs and a certain moral code that despite any differences people may have were all so well communicated they could hardly be seen as anything other than the best writing possible in our world today. He will be sorely missed.

Balancing your immediate requirements, i.e. work to pay the bills and finding time to chase your hobbies and personal projects is the art of life. Something at 9 months shy of 40 I'm just figuring out. Or fooling myself into thinking I am anyway.
