    • I bought this book a while ago but have put off reading it as I didn't want to have the memory of the other Hitchhiker's books ruined by another authors attempts to emulate the late, great, Douglas Adams. I needn't have worried - it is a lot better than I thought it would be and well worth a read as he captures the spirit of Adams' work perfectly.

            • Just started this one again - like all of Middlebrook's work it is well worth a read. It took guts to do what the USAAF crews did on these raids and even more guts to keep returning to the fray.

              The men of Bomber Command and the USAAF suffered mightily in the cause of freedom, I wonder how many of us would demonstrate such resolve today?

              • The 'real' story of the travels of Marco Polo. I'm about 200 pages into the 1276 pages of the book, and I am very impressed so far. Interesting characters, clean writing and marvellous detail. Oh, and lots of sex and violence.

                          • I just read "Dead Souls" by Nikolai Gogol
                            "The Korson Pocket" and
                            "Bismark, Final days of Germany's Greatest Battleship"

                            • I found Gogol's satire quite humorous and insightful.
