I know there have been several book threads in the past, but being an avid reader, I am always on the lookout for good recommendations. I have read a few really great books based on some of the past threads, so I thought I would start a thread to see which books you guys have read lately, and if you recommend them or not. I know there are a ton of other readers on here. I am studying for a professional exam right now, so I have not been reading as much as I usually do, but here are the last few books I have read.
1) Unbroken, A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption, by Laura Hillenbrand. Great true story about an Olympic sprinter turned airman in WWII who survived a long period adrift at sea in a life boat, then years of captivity as a Japanese POW.
2) Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett. Novel about centered around the building of a cathedral in medieval England. Not one that I would have thought to read myself, but picked it up on a recommendation and loved it. Great book.
3) The Survivors Club, by Ben Sherwood. This is about common traits that survivors of life and death situations have, and kind of a how to survival guide when faced with life threatening situations. An interesting read, but not sure I buy into all of it.
