My last read, 'The Maltese Falcon' by Dashiell Hammett, was a crime novel. Now for something completely different!
My next read, 'The Prestige' by Christopher Priest, is a novel which was adapted into a film in 2006, starring Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman and Michael Caine. For those who haven't seen the film, it is about two magicians in a battle to outdo each other with their illusions, but develops into something much more sinister. Here's the trailer:
I wasn't aware that this was originally a novel, but after I read a review of the novel on another book blog, I really wanted to read this. So far, the book is nothing like the film but I will have to read on to see what happens.
Here's this week's snippet:

Whatever you're doing today, enjoy what's left of the weekend. The weather here is gloriously sunny, but unfortuately that means that I have hayfever. So I'll have to stock up on tissues!
