I just finished the thriller 'Archangel' by Robert Harris. Much better than Fatherland. Packed with great scenes and characters. Thrilling plot. Couldn't recommend it higher for what it does.

Treasure Island.

I saw Muppet Treasure Island years ago, I figured Blind Pew was such a ridiculous character the guys from the Muppets must have came up with him.

Turns out they didn't.

For me, Muppet Treasure Island is the definitive version.

I'm currently looking for a book to read.

Like a different view on historical events (a "what if" book).. Do you guys know any good ones?

You could give David Gemmels "Troy" trilogy a try?

I'm still reading George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire. I am in the middle of Storm of Swords and feel like I've been punched in the gut repeatedly.

Lets just say I've read through a certain wedding and I feel sick. I have to admire the handiwork and scheming that went on there and I suspected that something like that might happen, but I still feel horrible. I was not prepared. I was rooting for the

Damnit, Mr. Martin, you write a good story. Now I have to stay up late and see how this pans out.

He certainly does. I heard the poor chap was ill, though.

I must confess I also liked the Wild Card stories. That really would be due for an MMORPG.

That would be alarming. I don't see any mention of illness on his LiveJournal, though. In fact, he is recently back from a trip to Europe, which I can't imagine he would have undertaken if his health was in question.

I'm between books right now. I think I'm going to pick up McCarthy's The Road next.

I'm glad he's not ill any more. I looked, and he mentioned it himself in the afterword to his last book.

He isn't ill at the moment but quite a lot of fans are scared that he'll die before finishing all the books. They are mostly just whiners but he doesn't exactly look healthy.

I just love how ubiquitous this reaction is amongst people who like his books. :lol:

Yeah, the past weekend, I told everyone I was busy and just stayed home reading. Haven't done that in a while. It felt good.
