2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke. The book and the movie were created simultaneously. Now I need to see the movie again.

I recently finished In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick which is inspiring me to read Moby Dick.

" The Great Shame" by Thomas Kenealy. A history of The Irish in the New and the Old World. Irish rebels transported to Oz in the early 1840s, escape and refuge in the USA. Involvement in the Civil War (General Meagher et al). Meagher as Acting Governor of Montana. Attempted Fenian "invasion" of Canada etc. A thick book which would sit well under the short leg of the piano. A good read and an eye-opener.

The Blackhouse by Peter May, the first book of his Lewis Trilogy. *****
When a brutal murder on the Isle of Lewis bears the hallmarks of a similar slaying in Edinburgh, police detective Fin Macleod is dispatched north to investigate. But since he himself was raised on Lewis, the investigation also represents a journey home and into his past.

Highly recommended!
