The Straw Men

september 7, 2002

On the subject of books, I'm reading one that is pretty darned good -- probably the best book I've read this year (not that I read a lot of books). It's The Straw Men by Michael Marshall. The book follows three storylines and so far (I'm just before the halfway point) I still can't see how they all tie together. Michael Marshall is an excellent writer, his English is fantastic. And his style is beautiful -- unlike (now) pulp fiction writers Stephen King, Tom Clancy, and Michael Crichton. Check out the book The Straw Men if you have a chance.
