Oh this was a goodie. As each novel has passed Ian Rankin has definitely matured in his writing. He kept me guessing right to the end. There were also some lovely developments of Siobhan's character.

The Unlikely Rise of Vladimir Putin
[Second Hand Hardback]
This was a gob hanging open book, it was such a good and so educational. I am not sure how objective it was, however it was telling a side of truth that really needs to be told.
I was also delighted to learn that Masha’s quality of writing has dramatically improved since I read her Pussy Riot book.
Bringing Together the Best of the Evangelical and Charismatic Worlds
Rich Nathan and Ken Wilson
Oldie and a goodie. This was an excellent levelheaded book. I really enjoyed how it was so practical and down-to-earth, but yet encouraging and motivating. Both authors already had my respect, so it is no surprise that I liked this book.
Victoria University Press
This is a wild and beautiful fictionalised account of a New Zealand and Australian team that rode the 1928 Tour de France. At times the prose are quite stunning and left pictures that I struggled to dislodge from my thinking. There are a lot of drugs, anger and grief in the story and this often left me feeling lost and tripping. A well written book, the end is maybe a little disappointing, but well worth the read.
