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.

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.
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
The Dice-man by Luke Rhinehart
