"The Eight" by Katherine Neville. Such a great book, can only recommend! (esp. those fascinated by music, maths, chess, adventure, computers, the middle east, the economy... )

Regarding your avatar, I saw a take off of it somewhere which read:

I poke people who poke badgers with spoons. With machetes.

I liked it.
:rofl: Sounds pretty cool...

Yeah...that would be part of what we call the "Hemingway style", and also you get a lot of "and" in the Joycean streams of consciousness.

If you don't like it then...you're not a fan of Hemingway.

Personally I love a bit of Ernest.

Just finished Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake, I'm now moving onto William Golding's Lord of the Flies.

For some reason I never got round to reading it before.

Calm down?

There was no tone to my comment, I was just responding to your question.

The female eunach by Germaine Greer, Whether you agree with her or not you have to admire her honesty, bravery and sheer originality of thought. Excellent book!

I'm reading Raven's Gate by Anthony Horowitz. My brain needs a break!
:eek: Me too!

(And I'm a big fan of Sean Bean myself)

Woah... I'm in a new and unfamiliar situation. Having finished Shaman's Crossing (Robin Hobb) about ten minutes ago, I now have no more books to read! I shall have to correct this most appalling of circumstances soon, methinks.
