About halfway through this and I simply cannot put it down, Brad Thor is a fantastic storyteller.

Altar of Eden

  

Baghdad falls . . . and armed men are seen looting the city zoo. Amid a hail of bullets, a concealed underground lab is ransacked—and something horrific is set loose upon the world.

 

Seven years later, Louisiana state veterinarian Lorna Polk investigates an abandoned shipwrecked fishing trawler carrying exotic caged animals, part of a black market smuggling ring. But there is something disturbingly wrong with these beasts—each an unsettling mutation of the natural order, all sharing one uncanny trait: incredibly heightened intelligence.

 

Joining forces with U.S. Border patrol agent Jack Menard—a man who shares with her a dark and bloody past—Lorna sets out to uncover the truth about this strange cargo and the terrorist threat it poses. Because a beast escaped the shipwreck and is running amok—and what is about to be born upon the altar of Eden could threaten not only the future of the world but the very foundation of what it means to be human.

Atomic Lobster (Serge Storms Series #10) 

 

 

From Publishers Weekly

 

Dorsey's 10th novel to feature Serge A. Storms and Coleman (after 2007's Hurricane Punch) offers sex, violence, more violence and Three Stooges–like action. After meeting up with Rachael, a stripper and drug addict, Serge and Coleman, bored and broke, take a Florida road trip. Meanwhile, several other characters, destined to converge, start their own treks: killer Tex McGraw, sprung from prison with revenge on his mind; empty-nesters Jim and Martha Davenport, seeking a little excitement; the G-Unit, a group of investing grannies who like to cruise; three American drug dealers and three Mexican drug dealers, with a new smuggling operation; and two Davis Islands residents, one a famous ex-football player. Recurring fave Johnny Vegas pops up, too, along with several government agencies. While Dorsey's brand of comedy isn't for the faint of heart, this fast-moving, raucous tale delivers its usual punch while gleefully skewering everyone and everything along the way. (Feb.)

Looks like you're working your way through Tim Dorsey at a good pace.  I've still got to read Electric Barracuda but I've read all the rest of 'em... :smileyhappy:

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

I did the same thing when I started reading Tim Dorsey.  Problem is when you switch to some other book it just seems strange after you're inundated with Dorsey's style.

I'm thinking about getting Electric Barracuda with my Groupon gift certificates but I'm still not happy with the price of the book at $11.99.  It's strange but at $9.99 I wouldn't hesitate...

I'm very new at this, but I thought i'd give it a shot...just started reading When the Wind Blows by James Patterson. Anyone else read this yet? I've read one other book by him, too, called The Broker.

I'll have to check to see if either of my libraries has it.  Good thought!

 

Update:  It's not in either of my libraries... :smileysad:

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

I keep hearing good things about Tim Dorsey, so I am adding his books to my list, but first I have to finish some of what I have. I'm currently reading 

 

 

 

Daughters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It's really good. Ms. Baehr must have done a ton of research. Her descriptions of the life of the people of Palestine at the beginning of the 20th century really put me in the picture and her characters are beautifully drawn. I'm loving this book so far.

 

L.C. Evans

 

We Interrupt This Date 

 

The Witness Wore Blood Bay 

 

Night Camp 

 

Jobless Recovery

Re: What is everyone reading (revisited)?

I'm still in the middle of Pillars of the Earth but have started Fatal Vision--I like to read a variety of books at once in different genres in case I burn out on one.  Has anyone read Robin McKinley's

Pegasus ?

 

I love Robin McKinley books that are based on fairy tales, such as Deerskin and Beauty, but I've had trouble getting into a couple of her other ones.  Her style is fairly dense and poetic, with lots of descriptive detail and subtle magic, which works well for fairy tale retellings, but sometimes gets a bit much for me in her other works.  Anyway, I'm looking forward to Pegasus--I love stories about mythological creatures and their relationship to mankind.

Due to snow, extremely cold weather, utility problems, I have had four days off work.  Well what better time to read, read, read!  I belatedly started to read Stieg Larsson's books. Literally, I could not put any of those books down (although the last book had too many people and too many references that I just did not want to take the energy to fully comprehend).  I highly recommend these books:

 

 

 

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium Trilogy Series #1) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Girl Who Played with Fire (Millennium Trilogy Series #2) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Millennium Trilogy Series #3)
