Re: What are you reading?

I've just finished reading A Foreign Country by Charles Cumming, a spy thriller. It was diverting enough but I found it a bit plodding. Yes real life espionage is more about waiting around and watching than jumping through windows and having car chases, but it takes a good writer to make that still interesting and Cumming fell a bit short for me. Plus it's one of those books that spends ages getting to the finale, then seems in a rush to wrap things up. I swear some authors just get bored...

Bought a new book that I plan to start tonight. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, sounds interesting at least!
Werewolves on the moon
Safe House "Bond meets the Haunting!"
