    'Kim' by Rudyard Kipling. Perhaps my favourite as I seem to re-read it every 5 years or so.

  6. The Sword and Scimitar by Simon Scarrow.

    Historical fiction about the Great Siege of Malta in 1565, between the Christian Knights of the Order of St John and the expanding Islamic Ottoman Empire.

    Good read so far.

    Since the last update I have finished

    Kokoro by Natsume Soseki
    Thousand Cranes by Yasunari Kawabata (possibly Top 5 of my lifetime reads)
    Palm of The Hand Stories by Yasunari Kawabata


    I currently have several on the go currently but haven't settled on any particular one, a bit fatigued with reading the past week. Flitting between the following
    The Sound of The Mountain by Yasunari Kawabata
    The Woman in The Dunes by Kobo Abe
    The Paper Door by Shiga Naoya
    A Gentleman In Moscow by Amor Towles

    Alastair Reynolds - Absolution Gap.

    The first four books have been great, classic styled, space opera ......... So I've eventually picked this next one up and will be sitting down some time this week to start it.

  14. Just completed Ballard's Empire of the Sun. "A brilliant fusion of history, autobiography, and imaginative speculation". I couldn't put it better than Anthony Burgess so I didn't try.

    Started Conclave by Robert Harris last night, what a page turner! 111 pages in already
     
  17. I loved Conclave. Who would have thought Papal elections could be so thrilling?

    It's great so far, still one of the few things in today's World that has a bit of mystery and an aura around it. Same thing with Angels and Demons, that was a good read too
