whats on your book bucket list…..
Romance of the Three Kingdoms, bit of a struggle at times but is an absolutely epic tale including gems like the warrior shot in eye the by an arrow pulling the arrow, out came the eyeball so he scoffed it so as not to dishonour his parents, or the hunter who had an honoured guest but had no food, so cooked up his wife, causing the guest to “shed tears of gratitude” when he found out.Posted 3 years agosamuriMember
‘The Ocean at the end of the lane’ is queued up on my Kindle. Heard loads of good things about it.
Have you read American Psycho? I read it and threw it away as soon as I’d finished it. It’s a properly disturbing book. Then I find out he’s written another on, Glamorama. Now I’m morbidly curious about how that turns out. It’s on my list but I’m worried about what i’ll find.Posted 3 years agoStonerSubscriber
I’m currently re-reading Dilip Hiro’s “Islamic Fundamentalism” (an excellent concise, but dry, history of Islam & the Islamic world) as a refresh before I next read Tom Holland’s new book “In the Shadow of the Sword”: a more “story-led” history of the Arabs from the 6th century.Posted 3 years agoz1ppyMember
“The Dark Defies”, final book of the A Land Fit For Heroes trilogy (great mix of fantasy/sci-fi) by Richard K Morgan.. when it’s released, as it was supposed to be out in April, pushed back to November… Grrrrr
Throughly recommend the first two book and his Takeshi Kovacs novels
..Partners waiting for “The City of Mirrors” (so am I) by Justin Cronin, again the final part of his trilogy out in October.
Got a few books lined up, but nothing I’d really looking forward to (hoping to be surprised).. Actually you’ve reminded me I have Morgan’s Blackman/13 to try 😀Posted 3 years ago
