Thread: Reading!

  1. #51
    For reasons unknown to me and because I already have a big stack of books to read, I decided it would be a good idea to pick up Matheson's Hell House, Richard Laymon's One Rainy Night, and Robert McCammon's Swan Song.

    First it was the dvds, now it's the books. Where will the needless buying stop?

    - Casino Royale (my first Ian Fleming James Bond novel... and my last one; ugh)

    Need to give old Ian another try, Bel. My fave is From Russia with Love. Read it at least three times.

    John Gardner and Raymond Benson picked up the mantle and wrote some good Bond books, too. Benson also wrote the two Splinter Cell books, too.

    Alistair MacLean is one of my favorites: the Guns of Navarone, Ice Station Zebra. The master storyteller, he is.

    Jack Higgins is a good fast read. I have gotten through some of his more recent works in a weekend.

    Read a lot of military history books, too. Reading one about Hitler and the bunker at home.

    I also thoroughly enjoy Jude Watson's SW books. Bought the latest in the Last Jedi series; haven't read it yet.

    I finished reading Unexplained Mysteries of World War 2 by William Breuer. Not bad,although some things have been reported as inaccurate. Mostly just a fun read for rarely heard stories of WW2,certainly wouldnt take much of its historical accounts.

    Right now I'm reading The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich for about the 10th time. It's absolutely my favorite book ever and I plan on reading the damn thing over and over until the pages fall out.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    Sounds interesting. I might have to pick that one up.

    I just finished up all 1,200+ pages of Rise and Fall so now I'm onto Inside the Third Reich written by Alber Speer, Hitlers personal arcitecht turned armaments minister who alot of historians call the most honest Nazi since he didn't deny anything at Nuremburg and was honest about everything. He was sentenced to 20 years in Spandau prison (the same prison Hitler was imprisoned in in 1923 for his failed putsch) and that is where he wrote these memoirs.

    I've also started reading The Da Vinci Code. I didn't buy it, I borrowed it and I just wanna see how much the movie was like the book since I liked the movie.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!

    I'm about half done with End of the Beginning. Its a follow up book of alternate history by Harry Turtledove. In the first book Days of Infamy Japan not only attacks Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941 but they invade and take the Hawaiian Islands. In this book the American's are mounting an attack against Japan, the ground forces are about to land.....
