    The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer


    Now, while it seems like I'm trying to just push my zombie fetish, I really reccommend World War Z. It has a lot about politics, some satire, and it's just all-around genius. It's by Max Brooks.

    I realize that this is a really old post of yours, but I just got to reading it, and it's quite amazing. I loved how he was able to portray himself as so many people, like he was actually interviewing a different person each time, be it a blind man from WWII speaking of his life and troubles, a scared little girl recalling a church scene, a pilot's story of trying to make her way to an interstate to get home, a Japanes teen explaining him repelling down an apartment building, etc. It actually seems like a big book of interviews, and it's just.. Gawd...

    All book by Matthew Reilly. They contain loads of action and gun fights. I seriously recommend them for fans of non-stop shooting/fights. And also I recommend the "A breif history of time" by Stephen Hawking. Good stuff. :Happy: Oh and the Artermis Fowl series, cracked me up.
