Hot books

Back from a week in Greenville NC. Hot and sunny 12X7.

When not listening to music or tossing a baseball, I was reading. John Le Carre’s Absolute Friends, Robert Harris’ Pompeii and Greg Bear’s Eon.

I enjoyed all. The first two are recent, the latter written in 1985, with the USSR a belligerent player. Each deals with failing empires, although I didn’t pick them for this theme; in fact Eon was basically random, the only tolerable book I could find at the Greenville Target, when I ran out of books midweek. Any tips on summer novels to read?
