Must suggest "Voyage to Alpha Centauri" by Michael O'Brien. Or his Children of the Last Days series.

I got Chesterton's biography of St. Thomas Aquinas for kindle. It was just over a dollar.

It is very good, in my opinion. And in that of folk who know the Saint far better than I.

I love it. One of his best books. Not suitable for Lent, though, because just too darn enjoyable. :fyi:

That is a very odd place for an e-book to be. I would have looked under the dollar before I looked over it.

That's OK for my bedtime reading. The Lord of the Rings is enjoyable too. :fyi:

Voyage is OK, but it is very Michael O'Brien-y. It is FULL of his tropes.

Finished my O''Brian book last night and started The Lord of the Rings. A rereading is much overdue.
