Strength and Honor by RM meluch
I am just about to start reading The Quiet Earth by Criag Harrison. I have been wanting to read this book for a couple of decades but copies of it were selling for $400+. Now it has finally been republished for the first time in 27 years. It seems that the new paperback is almost sold out but it is available on Kindle.
I hope this book is worth the long wait
In my defense, though, I don't think I referred to anything that wouldn't have already been able to conclude on your own, if you're nearly halfway through, just based on the events of the plot. There's still a surprise or two waiting for you.
Plus, isn't the ten years since it was published long enough for the spoiler period to expire? What is the statute of limitations on books, anyway?
I just finished a book that was so good I couldn't do anything else in my free time until I had finished it. However, it's probably not your typical fare for this crowd....or maybe it is......?
The book is "Exploding The Phone," by Phil Lapsley.
Maybe we should put "Spoilers" in the thread title.
Well, I finished the Obsidion Trilogy, and now I've begun the next trilogy in the series; book 1 of the Undying Flame...Phoenix Unchained.
Radicals for Capitalism: A Freewheeling History of American Libertarianism
Paleofantasy: What Evolution Really Tells Us about Sex, Diet, and How We Live
A People's History of the Supreme Court
"Frewheeling" means "not edited much". The author actually used the word "natch". Gagh!
Ooh that's interesting. I always liked the film, never knew if was based on a book. Let us all know if its any good
I have finished and I really enjoyed it. 4/5.
However, though the beginning is quite similar to the movie, its ending its very different. I didn't mind this ending but I can understand why some people who loved the movie might not.
You wrote one thing I hadn't read about or guessed (right) yet, is all.
Just a guess: same (one year, or is it a half?) period as for all other media, but that's not the point. The point is that you caught me off guard
That's a very good idea! I wouldn't want the other books I've not read yet spoiled... lI mean, would you start reading Hamlet, War and Peace, The Idiot, Ulysses... if you knew what they were all about
Interesting, I might give it a go
Just got Kathy Reichs' new Tempe Brennan novel, Bones of the Lost, on my Kindle. Halfway through it already!
I have just started reading The Satin Man: Uncovering the mystery of the missing Beaumont children by Alan Whiticker.
The disappearance of the 3 Beaumont children from a beach in Adelaide in 1966 is Australia's greatest mystery and I believe that the author gives his own theory about what happened to them in this book.
"Spirit Walk: Old Wounds" - 3rd VOY novel.
The Last Herald-Mage by Mercedes Lackey
This prompted me to look the incident up on Wikipedia. Very sad, I'd be interesting in knowing what his conclusions are?
I finished Daughter of Smoke and Bone, just started The Testimony
"Mostly Harmless", The fifth, and last book of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy series to be written by Douglass Adams. I was planning to read Eon Colifer's new book, "And Another Thing....", when it occured to me that it's been at least twenty years since I read the other books, so I decided to refresh my memory of the older stuff, despite the fact that I listen to my CD's of the radio series once a year.
The Last Man by Vince Flynn
I read books 1 and 2. When I have more money, I'll be getting 3-5. Hope they are good!!
I thought they were. You shouldn't be disapointed.
If you afford it, you should hunt down a copy of the hardcover that collects them all (minus AND ANOTHER THING...). At least, I THINK it collects all of Adams' books. My copies are thirty year old paperback editions, so I never bothered to look too closely at that hardcover. I just know it exists.
