My 2007 list has only a couple of overlaps with yours -- Cloud Atlas (which I thought was brilliant), and The Awakening (which I rather liked)


Oh, I'd love to hear what you thought of The Last Samurai. I read it about the same time I read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, so I feel like my impression of the book was sullied by the parallels that kept bumping me on the head.

I'd also be interested in seeing what you thought of the Krakauer, Mitchell, and Davies stuff. I was really pleased with the Deptford trilogy, but I haven't read anything else of his.


Oh, man, I loved The Last Samurai.


Oh my god, The Girl With the Silver Eyes! I read that book in the library when I was ten, and found a copy again twenty years later. Really defines the particular YA 80s SF genre, huh?

(Also some other books are your list were great.)


Thanks for your book reviews. Just read Intuition & thoroughly enjoyed it. You might like "The Sparrow" by Mary Doria Russell. It's way more than it looks.
