A thousand splendid suns (Khaled Hosseini)

Like the Kite Runner - an amazing read, which confirms Hosseini's amazing gift as a writer. What the hell was this guy doing working as a doctor ?? I guess he has certain qualities like compassion which are well suited to both fields. A masterfully written story of honor and friendship that spans the lifetime of the 2 main women characters - inspirational.

Don't eat this book (Morgan Spurlock)

Have to confess I am a big Spurlock fan... a very well documented book, based on his "field research" for the Supersize Me movie. You will never look at your Big Mac the same way after reading this book... very informational and entertaining at the same time.
