Reading List Thus Far

Finished up The Hostage, the second book of W.E.B. Griffin's Presidential Agent series. Griffin covers the same ground as Tom Clancy mostly, with maybe a bit less on the tech details and more on the political wrangling.

As an audiobook, it was pretty good, except when the characters call each other on the phone. The audiobook producers give those passages a fake "cellphone" sound, and it's a bit jarring at first.

Currently listening to: Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. It's basically the exact same story as The DaVinci Code: Harvard art nerd runs around a big Euro city accompanied by a beautiful yet brainy woman while evil-doers from a long lost secret society try to do him in. I think the Illuminati are more interesting than the Priory of Sion, and I'll bet Dan Brown wished he could've used them again in DVC.
