Just finished reading this English version by Robert Fagles of The Odyssey. I don't know enough Greek to read the original, but this English version is a marvellously rich page turner.

A collection of essays by distinguished English theologian, Nicholas Lash. I'm re-reading it and finding it both challenging and immensely insightful.

A dryish book, but draws on ancient and modern wisdom to explain how sentences work and how to make them work better.

Brian Solis' book is yet another ground-breaker from this man who has forgotten more about social media than most have learned. Not one for beach reading but well worth it for serious professionals and any business person who wants to get the big picture as well as the details about social media engagement.

Grahame Greene's murder mystery set in 1930s Brighton in England. But more than a murder mystery: I'm about two-thirds through and fascinated by the complexity and nuance of psychological and "socialogical" observation woven through the story telling. More than a murder mystery - a meditation on evil -  and good.

The novel 'Brighton Rock' written by Graham Greene in 1938 which was later adapted for a film in remade in 2010

A historical fiction novel I found totally absorbing. Set near the conclusion of the American Civil War. Central to the novel is the character of General William Tecumseh Sherman as he marches his 60,000 troops through the heart of the South.

The march : a novel. [E L Doctorow] -- In Union general William Tecumseh Sherman marched his sixty thousand troops through Georgia to the sea, and then up into the Carolinas. The army fought off Confederate forces, demolished .

"Employing a multi-voiced narrative that perfectly captures the riffs and rhythms of latter-day New York, then broadens to implicate a cast of characters including scientists, war veterans, prelates, Holocaust survivors, cabinet members, theologians, filmmakers, and crooners, City of God is E. L. Doctorow's most ambitious and intensely personal work." Penguin blurb - a good summary, but this firecracker of a book doesn't lend itself to a one sentence summary.

The crowning achievement of E.An astonishing modern masterwork of faith,mystery and the search for spiritual authenticity.All centered on the idea of a modern reality of God.

After all these years, finally took time to read the Odyssey right through. Don't know enough Greek to read in that language, but this English version by Robert Fagles is a delight.
