I LOVE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO! I was obsessed through the first and second one....cannot wait for the third one!
Surprize - Ian McEwan is one of my all-time favorite authors. You have to hold out until the end though....the endings are always some amazing twist or revelation. "Amsterdam" wasn't my favorite of his; my favorite is definitely "Atonement." Other good ones by him are "Saturday," "On Chesil Beach," and "The Daydreamer."
I'm currently reading "Dark Star Safari: Overland From Cairo to Cape Town" by Paul Theroux. It's okay, I'm finding it really difficult to get into, but I'm also finding it really difficult to find time to read.
