I mean it's not as if the books are particularly bad or anything, they're just another pulpy thrash book, but the reaction created by them pisses me off.


It's not that I hate Dan Brown. I read both Angels & Demons and The DaVinci Code. They were fun reads. You know.. kind of like eating dessert instead of a good, healthy meal. What I do hate is how he's got these psuedo-facts that he tries to pull of as the real thing. And that he has to have his wife do his research. Which is probably why he screws them up so much. He doesn't have the context that the facts came from.

Anyway.. my favorite books?

Let's see... The Princess Bride (if you're any fan of the movie, you should read the book. The movie will make WAY more sense then.) Of Mice and Men... poor Lenny.... Ummm.. I was into Mercedes Lackey for awhile, but I got over that. I love historical fiction. Right now I'm reading Salems' Lot and Eragon.

my 2 cents...

One of my favourite books - King Rat by James Clavell.
One of the best read recently - The Traveller by John Twelve Hawks.
One of my favourite RL war/conflict - Black Hawk Down by mark Bowden.
One of my favourite Fantasy - Magician by Raymond E Feist.
One of my favourite Biographies - Killing Pablo by Mark Bowden.
For those who only like the movies...anything by Matthew Reilly reads like a Hollywood blockbuster, totally implausible but an okay read.

& loads others....

*Edit...& of course The Dice Man by Luke Rhinehart...as so many of us live & die by the dice here in CC

Heh.. so far it's OK. I can really tell a 16 year old wrote it though. It's interesting to see his use of a thesaurus.

Ahh.. you might wanna try using proper nouns a bit more often. They tend to clarify things a bit in conversations.
