Reading List Thus Far

Most of my "reading", at least for fiction, is listening to audiobooks in the car. Just finished Be Cool by Elmore Leonard. I didn't know who was actually in the new movie, so I had to look up it up in IMDB to match the cast with the characters.

In the book, especially because of the wonderful reading by Recorded Books' voice talent, I could really "see" John Travolta as Chili, and The Rock as Elliot Wilhelm. The movie's casting of the mobsters is good too. But Vince Vaughn as Raji? Too bad Snoop Dogg isn't at the self-deprecating stage yet.

Currently "reading": Prey by Michael Crichton. Funny how he places the storyline in Silicon Valley--he gets most of the feel right, but a lot is the usual "detached writer" stuff. But the plotline about the unemployed guy at home is hilarious--been there, done that...
