Messiah was often critiqued for focusing too much on the politics / plots within plots, etc. and not having as much action as Dune did. That's actually why I preferred it. Seems people hate God Emperor for the same reason, so I'm very excited for that one. I liked Children about as much as Dune.

After so many months finally picked Salammbo back up on Sunday night and finished the last 2 chapters. WTF. Flaubert goes from sheer brilliance with Madame Bovary to this garbage. At least I finished it though.

I guess Robert Graves spoiled me a bit too much as far as historical fiction goes.

The secret history by Donna Tartt

The Secret History is one of my favorite novels. BBC is airing an adaptation of Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall.
