Link du Jour: Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

I had dinner with a buddy last night and the 100-page Rule came up in conversation. We talked about how there are too many great page-turners out there and not enough time to read them all, so we've got no business forcing ourselves to read books that aren't grabbing us. I offered Preston and Child's The Relic up as a recent book that I couldn't get through fast enough. It's too bad the movie that was made from it was so average, but the book is exciting and chilling and just keeps pushing you forward until you're done.

That, plus the fact that Preston and Child have inter-connected their stories by having characters and organizations crossover from book to book, makes me very interested in reading more by them.

That last paragraph is intriguing.

I find that all of the Agent Pendergast novels, (yes even starting with "Relic")are fantastic reads.

Though I confess - I listen to more books that I actually read. I was hooked on "Cabinet of Curiosities" and "Still Life With Crows" because they were read by Rene Auberjonois, but then discovered the unabridged versions read by Scott Brick.

The Diogenes Trilogy - *dies*

*hearts muchly*

Thanks, Montilee! That's encouraging, because I really want to like the rest of their stuff.

I've bookmarked your site to check out more later. Always nice to meet other writers.
