Where Eagles Dare

I am done with "Where Eagles Dare", a suspense novel. An interesting novel with an unexpected ending. I have not predicted the climax of the novel during my read. The characters in the novel are formed so very well and I am really not surprised that its been recommended by so many of them I know. Ahead is "The Winner by David Balducci. I have not even started it but I am totally excited since this book is yet another recommendation I've got.

Book Reads

I spoke about the famous Barrington-Woods combo in one of my previous post, that's New York Dead and Dirt. Those were decent reads. And post which , I've read another series of the combo, Dead in the Water. It was also a similar kind. I definitely needed a break from Woods books. So thought of going for another author and now I am reading Where Eagles Dare by Alistair MacLean. So far, its interesting and for sure a page turner. Got it recommended from one of the web portal and the novel seems to be worth it in investing your time. This book, I got it from my local library and the book was funded by the town and was bought in the year 1967. The price of the book at that time was $4.95. Interesting, huh !! Will keep you updated about the novel when I am done with it.

A search for betterment

Contradicting to my previous post's topic.. Is'nt it??  Yes. But if you read the content you would be knowing on what I meant. Just happened to read the below article and it sounds so compelling and the most saneful behaviour towards betterment. This is what I meant. Betterment should be a passion, not an act of proving it over others.
