      I'm hopeful that Thrawn makes an appearance in the upcoming films. I bet that if he does, his story will be altered tho.

      Destroyermen is good (I'm reading Firestorm at the moment).

        Is the Dream of Eagles series the same as the Camulod series? If so it is great.

        Wheel of Time is pretty good.

        I think both would be better as a series a la Game of Thrones.

        I've yet to read Cornwell's Arturian books but do intend to. His Sharpe and Saxon series are great.

          I started the book earlier in the year, but didn't get too far. Not because of the book itself-I'm a relatively seasoned Clancy reader (and a fan), but because of schoolwork. Oh well and of course I did have an English project which I chose to do on Clancy.

                The Moon is a Harsh Mistress - Robert A. Heinlein
                http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Moo...Harsh_Mistress
                Tom Clancy has said of Robert A. Heinlein, "We proceed down the path marked by his ideas. He shows us where the future is." Nowhere is this more true than in Heinlein's gripping tale of revolution on the moon in 2076, where "Loonies" are kept poor and oppressed by an Earth-based Authority that turns huge profits at their expense. A small band of dissidents, including a one-armed computer jock, a radical young woman, a past-his-prime academic and a nearly omnipotent computer named Mike, ignite the fires of revolution despite the near certainty of failure and death.

                  Actually I completely agree. They're simply too large for movies

                  You'll love them I'm guessing.

                    I've always hoped that the Thrawn trilogy would be made into films, but with the original actors now in their sixties (and in Ford's case, early seventies), they'd have to be recast.

                      One of my Lt's. called that book "seditious" and threw my copy overboard. My revenge was sweet.

                            First two, agreed. But ERB was a very bad writer.

                                I disagree strongly . I like all of his work. Tarzan, John Cater of Mars, David Innes at the Earth's Core, Carson Napier of Venus . And his other non serires novels . I dissagree ! Very Strongly ! Very, Very Strongly !
                                In fact do you know that the city of Trazanna Calif was named after Tarzan of The apes. So again I disagree very, very strongly.
