ABC Books "D"
Here's my list for "D" books.
The Da Vinci Code- Dan Brown. Another Dan Brown. I read this before Angels and Demons, even though I believe the events of the latter happen before the The Da Vinci Code. Even though I don't agree with most of the speculations in this book, I like this one the most so far and look forward to reading the latest Robert Langston adventure, Inferno.
The Dark is Rising- Susan Cooper. I read this in elementary and I must have been absent one or two days when the class read a few chapters, because I was kind of lost throughout the book. When I read it again later in life, I really enjoyed it. There's a lot going on, but the magical elements are pretty interesting.
Death Be Not Proud- John Gunther. I've mentioned before that I'm not a fan of sad books/endings, but this true story of a young man's fight with a brain tumor, told by his loving father, was well worth the tears and heartache I felt. If you've never read this book, I highly recommend it.
