Over the last week or two read A Clash of Kings (GRRM), Carte Blanche (Deaver) and a Dr Who NSA - not sure what to read next... Possibly some nonfiction...
Was that your first time through Carte Blanche? What did you think?
Hm, not bad, with Deaver giving us plenty of twists and reversals, but the characterisation wasn't up to his usual standard (presumably because it's not his character) and the action scenes were very flat. Didn't really feel either like Bond or like a Deaver thriller (and he's one of my favourite thriller writers). And yet it was reasonably decent in its own right.
