"Behold the Man" is one of the most interesting Sci-Fi novels I've read. Sort of a less cheerful "Life of Brian."

Oh, there are more important things. I want to know if tom Brady's arm was really moving forward during the 2001-2002 AFC Divisional Playoff game! (Lost a bundle betting on my least favorite team, the Raiders!)

I just got done reading the "Outlander" series by Diana Gabaldon. Before that, I read the Clan of the Cave Bear series by Jean Auel. Both really excellent. I like getting deeply involved in long books. A series is even better. Right now, I am re-reading the Merlin series by Mary Stewart: The Crystal Cave, The Hollow Hills, and The Last Enchantment.

Thought I'd have a try at this -



Mmm - whaddaya y'all think?

Anyway, I've started reading these two. Er, a subject close to my liver, I can tell you. I'll do an Edit when I've read them, let you know what I think.

Edit: So, two stories set in New York/Boston, one featuring a Gay male, and one a Preppy female, both of whom work in the Media industry. I don't know, I'd never come across terms like 'High-Functioning Alcoholic' before. It seems an oxymoron. By definition, Alcoholics don't keep High-Powered jobs for years on end. Having your first drink of the day at 7pm after a hectic schedule, and making it into work for 9am without fail probably means you have a serious drink problem, and you certainly need help (Both attended Rehab), but to my mind (and Liver) there was something a little false about both books. Worth a read if you've had probs with the bottle, otherwise both a bit heavy-going.

Gribbin is one of my favourite science writers. At present I'm reading his 'The Universe - A Biography.' The Penguin History of Science is also a fantastic read.

Excellent book, and much better than the film - and the film is really good too :-)

As for me, I've just finished "Going Postal" by Terry Pratchett, and about to start the next in the series, "Making Money".

Default O'Brian, Kent/Reeman, Cornwall, and Buckley

I finished the Patrick O'Brian series dealing with the British navy around the time of the Napoleanic Wars. Great read with lots of background and character development. I do recommend you try to read the series in order.

If you like more action, the Alexander Kent/Douglas Reeman books are much lighter on character development but give you 3x the battles. I read his Bolitho series, which is a more less developed version of Jack Aubrey. Reeman's WWII novels have a standard stock of characters...physically and emotionally scarred hero, unsure how he'll do in the next battle. His boss is a coward and a bully and often stupid to boot. His crew always has an unsure royal or son of an admiral and an Aussie, Kiwi or South African, who will always bed the wife of the unsure royal, or some other dissatisfied officer on board. 60% of the characters will be killed within 2-3 sentences four pages from the end...usually same stock format in determining who dies.

Sharpe series is terrific. I also advise you read it in sequence...a good companion to the novels is the DVD collection. "Sharpe's Enemy"...has a brief breast shot of Elizabeth Hurley.

I'm currently working far away from my DVD and VHS collections and unfortunately can't post...it also explains why I have time to read 20+ book series

Christopher Buckley writes a good series of dark humour political satire. "Thank you for smoking" is much edgier than the movie. Florence of Arabia and No Way to Treat a First lady are equally entertaining.
