    Tan? :rolleyes: I grew up in SA and never once had a tan! I go red under cloud cover! :eek:

    'Rats and Gargoyles' by Mary Gentle. I haven't got very far into it yet. I have had barely any time to read because I'm looking after three kids while their mum is at hospital with their Dad who's having surgery. :mad:

    Lol..I'm no Mother Theresa! I came to stay with them for three weeks as a holiday (they're old friends) and the second night here, Mick and I went climbing together and he had his accident. So.. I'm kind of stuck here for three weeks anyways! :rolleyes:

    What's up?

    Crime and Punishment is quite heavy indeed... When reading that type of books, I usually read others at the same time so changing strorylines from time to time makes it easier... Luckily for me, it's winter here.

    I didn't read Ulisses, but I get the idea and agree... what do you think?

    quit amusing and probably very apt. i think you could, most likely, change the title and auther for almost any classical literature and it still be true.

    I started that years ago, still have it, but for some reason never finished it. I enjoyed it and will have to start it again.

    How do you like what you've read of it so far?

    Very much, so far. Although I hate it when the author chucks you in the deep end at the start and talks as if you already know how everything works in their fantasy world, and you have to really concentrate and read through quite a lot of the book before you catch onto the nuances that give away what's going on. I don't mean suspense, that's fine, its more that if I don't read it through really carefully I might not get it :confused: It just means that if you haven't got much time, you end up rereading loads of it!!!

    I used to do that a bit, but not any more. I find I get 'lost' into a particular storyline far more fully if its the only one I'm reading at the time.. and I am the sort of person who gets very absorbed in anything I read or watch.:rolleyes:

    Wow... this place has become a standstill lately! Where are the old timers? Craghyrax? Steph? Elements? Gameplayer_no1?

    I've not actually read that book you mentioned, gemby, is it any good? Tomorrow is the day I get a job and buy two books - Phantom by Terry Goodkind and Forest Mage by Robin Hobb :party:

    people are either too busy reading or not had time to read and therefore nothing literature related to talk about.

    Has anyone else read Stupid White Men by Michael Moore?

    Has anyone else got the impression that he has a hatred of men? I get the impression he stereotypes us all as illiterate senseless slobs.
