    Working my way through John le Carre. I like spys and Russia. If you do too, read them.

    I read it. IMHO it's a very good parody and much better than 'bored of the rings'
    it's still just a parody though- bits of it are just silly and unfunny and ultimately unoriginal.

    I'm reading Cliff Notes on the Old Testament.
    Really! They actually made a Cliff Notes for the OT!

    Kinjiro Tsukasa I'm hungry; got troll? Supporter

    I guess if they can make a Readers Digest version of the Bible, then why not a Cliffs Notes? :D

    The Invisible Man

    Going invisible (metaphorically of course) is always good in a fight.

    Oh and according to copyright laws in the US parody is always legal, how do you think all those shows and movies etc. get away with it? LIKE THE ENTIRE THUMBS SERIES!!! WOOO!
    Thumb Wars etc. etc. rocked... (movies though)

    There's a very good LOTR parody on the internet, called The Diaries, not suitable for MAP though :Angel: I've reserved Barry Trotter.

    Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors
    Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan

    Very interesting, it goes back to the origins of life, as best known by science, and traces it to the present, and in the process explains why things are the way they are, why people behave the way they do, and a lot more that I've still got to read.

    budogirl Armed and fabulous!

    I've just read "Swahili for the Broken hearted" by Peter Moore (he is dumped by his girlfriend and so travels for 6 months from Cape Town to Cairo.

    Now I'm reading "Getting away with it" by Tim Southwell - the story of Loaded magazine. Loaded was/is aimed at "For men who should know better" but I first read it cos I liked the fun stuff (Dr Mick, rogues gallery, crisps world cup etc.) and hedonistic attitude they all had to life. :D
  17. Mushroom

    Mushroom De-powered to come back better than before.

    Just finished reading Tokyo by Mo Hayder. Excellent story of a london girl in modern day Japan, looking for a possible evidence of what the japanese did in Nanking (1937)

    Currently reading 'Good Omens' by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett also 'The Screwtape Letters' by C.S. Lewis

    Good combo, read a little about a demon uncle telling his nephew how to currupt his subject (Screwtape Letters) and then a humorous slant on the apocalypse with angels and demons (Good Omens) :D

    Just finished The Fellowship of the Ring

    <flame bait>
    I'd read LOTR once before, in year 7, 4 years ago, didn't like it all that much then, and I didn't remember it much. I have to say that, while the book explained some things that weren't entirely clear in the movie, and had more detail, this was one of the few books where the movie was better than the book.

    Wonder what WW will say to that? :Angel:
