A 1000 splendid suns by Khaled Hosseini
Brilliant. Loved it. Better than The Kite runner IMO - not so gloomy.
Aerie by Mercedes Lackey
Predictable good versus evil. I used to enjoy her stuff but now I find them a bit pedestrian. Good "clean" fantasy though.
The Silent Frontier by Peter Watt
Historical fiction, coming of age type story. Read it mainly because I've read his others in the series and this one is set partially in NZ during the NZ Wars. Sparked my interest in the NZ Wars. It's an okay book - nothing too original but a good yarn.
Magic Study by Maria V. Snyder
Very much enjoyed this one. Fantasy genre and with a slightly different set of characters and "powers". Good fun! Strong heroine and interesting setting.
On the run by Iris Johansen
Entirely predictable thriller that I nearly didn't bother to finish.
The impressionist by Hari Kunzri
Loved this one. Another coming of age type story set in India (and Britain) during the time of Britain's rule. Main character is bought up as Indian but discovers he is actually and Anglo-indian. Rejected by his family he has to make his own way and find his own sort of identity. Some amusing characters and situations, and an intriguing look at the type of people in each country during this time. A surprising sort of ending but not unsatisfactory.
