8) Cyclops by Clive Cussler

Good, old-fashioned Dirk Pitt adventure including Russian villains, a beautiful woman, a catastrophe to prevent and a hidden treasure. I missed Al Giordino through most of the book and never really warmed to Jessie LeBaron. I liked the endig, though. Far from the best Pitt adventure, but decent entertainment.

Read in March

7) The Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch
Read: 18 February - 19 March
Pages: 719
Rating: 6

Only finished one book this month, but it was a great one. Exciting, funny and somewhat scary (I don't think a book has ever caused me to experience vertigo before), with colourful characters set in a world I could easily picture. Locke Lamora is a charming and witty conman with a good heart, leading an equally charming and witty band of young criminals who con rich people out of their money because it's what they do best. Engaging characters, black magic, scary villains, an interesting world and a clever plot, this is "a story of adventure, loyalty, and survival that is one part Robin Hood, one part Ocean's Eleven, and entirely enthralling..." ( What's not to love?
