I'm nearly finished The Frangipani Hotel by Violet Kupersmith. It really gives a taste of postwar Vietnam and the people, in this case the characters. It's short stories.
I've started Jaspar's War by Cym Lowell. It reads like a movie adventure. At the moment I'm running through the streets of Rome dressed as a nun. This woman's two children have been kidnapped. At almost the same time, she gets news that her husband has been killed in a plane crash. She's determined to find her children.
Still dying to get to The Returned by Jason Mott and I want to read The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Well, I have a long list like all book bloggers of what I'm dying to read. Won't bore you with a long list.:)
