Off the Shelf

World Without End by Ken Follett and The Alibi Man by Tami Hoag were on my list to read this month.

I have always liked Follett's adventures, but he changed his style and subject matter for Pillars of the Earth and World Without End. The books are set in England during the Middle Ages and contain a great deal of history of architecture, living conditions, and the plague. While these books are interesting, they are different from his other work that I prefer. In the past, I have read these works by Follett: Whiteout, Jackdaws, Dangerous Fortune, Night Over the Water, On the Wings of Eagles, The Man from St, Pertersburg, Eye of the Needle.

Tami Hoag's books are typical "Who Done It" stories and a lighter read that Follett's work. Her main characters are usually strong women, but the plots almost always have a touch of romance, too. I have read several other books by Hoag: Still Waters, Cry Wolf, Dark Paradise, Thin Dark Line, Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, Kill the Messenger. I haven't been disappointed with any of them.

If you are looking for a good read, I recommend picking up a book by Tami Hoag or Ken Follett. Both authors weave a good tale.
