A self-professed geek and proud of it, I started reading at a tender age and never really stopped until work got in the way for several years. I regained my voracious appetite for books a few years back and then started to enjoy writing down my thoughts. I am more of an emotional/instinctual rather than a critical reader.
Aside from reading, I enjoy outdoor sports (running, hiking, cycling, an occasional frisbee game), photography and travelling.
Three books in and Agent Pendergast might have convinced me to include thrillers as one of my favourite genres.
If I could have divined that Robert Jackson Bennett's masterful genre-redefining trilogy will end up as one of my all-time favourites, I would not have waited so long to read it.
City of Blades is easily one of the best books I've read this year; it has almost everything I could ask for in a sequel that builds upon a fantastic start to a trilogy.
