Book: Peter and the Starcatchers

I just completed reading Peter and the Starcatchers by David Barry, Ridley Pearson, and Greg Call. The book is the prequel to Peter Pan and explains how he came to be in Neverland, how he became the boy who would never grow up, how he gained the ability to fly, and how he and Tink became friends.

The book is a delightful, fanciful read.

Book: Angels and Demons

I just completed reading Angels and Demons by Dan Brown. This excellent fictional book recounts a story about the Illuminati and the conflicts between science and religion. The text focuses on the Catholic Church and I learned a lot about Catholic traditions through reading the text - though I have to do some research to separate fact from fiction.

The text is of the same genre as The Da Vinci Code and is an equally enjoyable and informative read.

I am now interested in reading Digital Fortress, also by Dan Brown, but may take a break and head back to Eric Larson to read Isaac's Storm (I loved Thunderstruck and Devil in the White City).
