      • Finished volume 2/3 the other day. I must say, I've grown to at least appreciate the book. It's not my cup of tea, but I can at least appreciate the devices, style, etc.

        • Excellent choice Robbie. I love it and I own it. Magnusson's books are terrific.

          • I'm about to finish The Ballad Of Frankie Silver, and it is an intense book at times. But very good. The narrative of Appalachia(my home) is very good also.

            • Finally finished Into the Storm, the first book of the "Destroyermen" series by Taylor Anderson. Quite good. I've just started Book Two: Crusade.

              • I've been interested in cinema and film lately. My newest read is Martin Scorsese from Twayne's Filmmakers Series by Les Keyser.

                • On my Shakespeare kick... MacBeth and Twelfth Night (very easy read as far as Shakespeare goes). Almost finished with Undaunted Courage (Lewis and Clark) tremendous book. Will likely start A Midsummer's Night Dream soon.

                  • Theodore Rex, a biography of Roosvelt whilst in office, I'm hoping to get the other two volumes which show his pre and post office career; every bit as colourful.

                    Whilst looking for the above image of the book cover I discovered there had been a film called Theodore Rex starring Whoopee Goldberg as a tough futuristic cop opposite a man in a Tyrannosaurus costume. It was a sci-fi buddy cop movie in which talking prehistoric megafauna are being killed off and the unlikely duo get paired together to solve the crime. Calamity no doubt ensued with high jinks all round. Did anyone see it? was it as brain-meltingly bad as it sounds?

                      You should read Rough Riders, his biography during Cuba, very well done. The movie by the same title is also very well done.

                      • Finally finished Undaunted Courage. Well done, however a very sad ending to a phenomenal young man.

                            • I got to find Undaunted Courage.
                              I picked up my cousin's copy of The Killer Angels. I haven't read it since I've been sober. I want to absorb it into my brain, not forget parts. Some it looks like I've never seen.

                                I think I started reading a bit of Killer Angels when I was littler. Not sure I could fully grasp the situation though, so I stopped. It's a gigantic book if I remember, too.
