Daily prompt: The Great Divide. When reading for fun, do you usually choose fiction or non- fiction?
I read everything. My reading choices depend on my mood and how much time I can devote to keeping my nose in a book! I like to immerse myself in a good book and read straight through to the end in only a day or two!
I just finished reading a book by Daniel Silva called the English Girl. It is but one in a series of spy novels featuring Gabriel Allon. I recommend them all and I recommend reading them in order if you can.
Once I started reading this hard-cover book series, I was hooked. I have since switched to reading on my I-pad, but when I had a chance to get a signed copy, I had this book delivered right to my door! There is no personalized message along with the signature, but I like knowing that the great writer once held this book containing his creation.
I like that the fictional characters and plots are set in real world settings. For me, it’s the perfect mix of fact and fiction. I am transported to places I may otherwise never visit. I meet people I would never chance to meet. I love the fast action and smart dialogue. After so many years, I feel like I know the characters and can even anticipate their reactions at times. Of course, there is always the added element of surprise and I am left wanting more!
Mr. Silva is, in my opinion, a gifted writer. I can’t wait to start reading the next book, The Heist. So if you have already finished the book, no spoilers, please!
