The Booklist

So, these are the books I’ve read since I started to keep a list of what books I actually read. It started out since I found no good service to keep track of this but lately I’ve started to use the Goodreads service instead so for a full list that are up to date, check it out!

Really enjoyed this book that gave a more honest and pure view of the mind of Steve Jobs. For good and bad, I still am amzed of the life this man lived.

This is the second book by the author pair about the look of a crime and the aftermath of them. The main theme in Box 21 is about trafficking from the Baltic countries into Sweden and we get to follow the story from both viewpoints.

Invasion by Dean Koontz

The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher: or the Murder at Road Hill House by Kate Summerscale

Into the wild by Jon K0rakauer

Pandoras Star by Peter F. Hamilton

This is the first book of three about the Commonwealth Saga which is a sci-fi story created by Mr. Hamilton. In some ways this book feels like an introduction of the world more then a story of it’s own but I can still recommend it for people who like futuristic books with words like “fluctuation-paradigm” and “multi-dimensional matrix-calculations”.

Mord.net by Ban Buthler; Dag Öhlund

The Gunslinger (The Dark Tower I) by Stephen King

A quite short story which introduce the reader the the world in which the series of the Dark Tower take place.

Odjuret by Roslund & Hellström

The Swarm by Frank Schätzing

The Swarm was a story which indeed captured a great deal of interest from me as I first found it in a bookshop at some airport. The story unfold into a science fiction thriller which keep me at bay through a number of late nights.

2008

Crime and punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky

It really is a privilege to read stories by Mr. Dostoevsky. He has a way of describing places and feelings in words which is just astonishing. This story is about a man rumbling the cold Russian streets after a hideous crime, mourning the way everything became. It is one of the classics and I can very much recommend this book.

Praying for Sleep by Jeffery Deaver

American Psycho by Bret Easton Ellis

The bone collector by Jeffery Deaver

A short history of nearly everything by Bill Bryson

The Undercover Economist by Tim Hartford

Life of Pi by Yann Martell

A wonderful short-story about a boy named Pi and his struggle for survival on a boat together with animals. Drama.

Bilbo by J.R.R Tolkien

Paranoia by Joseph Finder

JPod by Douglas Coupland

A book about a software-company and the strange people working there. Mr. Coupland have a way of telling a very twisted story which I think becomes best for people in the same industry as the book is about. Everyone who have been working with software will recognize the hardships and anoyances which can be found in this book. I laughed like a lunatic while reading it.

The Game by Neil Strauss

Iceman – Confessions of a mafia contract killer by Philip Carlo

Patient 67 by Dennis Lehane

Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell by Susanna Clarke

2007

Maffia
