Justinian's Flea by William Rosen. I downloaded this onto my phone ages ago and didn't get very far. It appears that, despite good intentions and in spite of the awesomeness of the book, I am not a finishing-audiobooks sort of person.
I always thought of Glenn Close as being really tall, but I guess not. I've also not seen her in very many things.
The Dog Stars by Peter Heller. This sounds good, but I can't handle the writing: no quotation marks, fragments everywhere, improper punctuation left and right. I spend too much time trying to decipher what's going on that I can't enjoy the story.
This is a historical romance, and really has the feel of what you'd find in a mass market paperback: spunky heroine, two people who won't communicate or admit their feelings... The only reason it's been released in hardback is because of the author(s).
The Pillow Book of the Flower Samurai by Barbara Lazar. The day-to-day part of this story was excellent. I really enjoyed the main (and main-ish) characters, and the level of historical detail in the story. The only not-as-well-done part of the book is the part about the Genpei War; there was not nearly enough information, and it wasn't conveyed very well. This left me pretty lost, which is a shame, since this was the last third of the book. The two- and three-starred reviews on Amazon are very accurate.
Also, some excitement: I have won a VIP pass to BEA this coming year from the awesome people at Unshelved. I have never been to BEA, or to New York at all, so it's kind of a big deal. (Too bad we're not still in Indiana where New York was rather convenient driving distance!)
