Osama by Lavie Tidhar

chriskitgordon, January 1, 2013

Imagine a alternate universe in which Osama bin Laden is the central character in a series of thrillers.
A detective is hired to track down the author of the books, and as he pursues the job the line between
his reality and our own becomes blurred. A highly imaginative and beautifully written book.

The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicles #2) by Patrick Rothfuss
The Wise Man's Fear (The Kingkiller Chronicles #2)

chriskitgordon, January 1, 2012

I re-read The Name of the Wind before I began The Wise Man's Fear, and was thrilled that the second book in the planned trilogy was as good--or perhaps even better--than the first. Patrick Rothfuss is a brilliant world-builder and storyteller. I can't wait for volume three.
