The Whitest Flower - Brendan GrahamI've just run out of books to read and I cant find the old thread with book recommendations so I'm just looking for some thoughts from other posters.
I don't like chick-lit and in this case I don't want non fiction. Previous books that I've loved for A thousand Splendid Suns or the Bookseller of Kabul and although they're not particularly good books, I love the pageturner quality of crime or suspense like Dan Brown. Any thoughts?
Just finished Bad Blood by John Carreyrou. Wow! What a book! It is captioned Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup. That put me off but the duchess insisted I read it. Okay I am always a bit sceptical about a non fiction book with clear good guys and bad guys. The bad guys are launching a Unicorn set-up which claims to have a machine to do blood tests fast and using pin pricks with a view to ultimately being as ubiquitous as the iPhone. The good guys are ex employees who say the claims are mostly bogus. I get sceptical when we are told the good guys were motivated by concern for patients.So, I'm going on my holibobs soon.
So far I have:
The new Tiger Woods book
Michelle Obama "Becoming"
The Spy and the Traitor
I usually get through 5 books so looking for a recommendation!
I also bought The Second World War by A. Beevor. I've started reading this and it's very good but it's a bit big to be lugging around..
