The Last Five Books I’ve Read

by John Hawkins | October 1, 2007 4:09 am

5) Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child: The Book of the Dead[1] (C: This was a mystery/crime novel with some interesting elements, but there were several people who were so super-humanly competent that it made it impossible to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the story).

4) Atul Gawande: Complications: A Surgeon’s Notes on an Imperfect Science[2] (B: A very readable, somewhat frightening book from a surgeon who goes to great lengths to explain how very fallible doctors really are)

3) Rick Warren: The Purpose Driven Life[3] (A+: Without hesitation, I would recommend this book to any Christian over anything else I have ever read on Christianity outside of the Bible).

2) Alan Moore: Watchmen[4] (A-: A gripping graphic novel that imagines all too human costumed crime fighters in a world that they gradually tilt off kilter.)

1) Thomas E. Woods Jr.: 33 Questions About American History You’re Not Supposed to Ask[5] (C+: Informative, but a bit dry and overly concerned with minutiae at times)
