The Anomaly, Rutger. A cheerfully pulp tale of a bunch of bullshit merchants investigating a cave in the Grand Canyon. It has 'for fans of Dan Brown' on the cover, which made me almost not buy it, but it was recommended to me specifically, so I pushed on. It's not bad at all, far better than Brown's product (I won't call it writing). A lightweight, enjoyable read, with some solid dialogue and an interesting, if well-worn central idea.
First Light, Wellum. A classic of WWII RAF doings, as a young man joins up two months before the start of the war. Modest, understated, and quite self-effacing, it is also honest and simple. Despite the fact it is not that long ago, the attitudinal difference is massive; Wellum tells the truth even when it doesn't show him in the best light, and as a result I respect him even more for it.
