Ender's Shadow Review

I'm a great fan of Sci-fi, and, Orson Scott Card in particular. Ender's Game is in my top 5 Sci-fi novels of all-time.

I'm about half way through this, and enjoying it immensely.


I also love my Fantasy, so have started re-reading all my Discworld novels. I'm currently on "Mort"

 -

Mort

I also have a number of Audio books. I currently have a copy of Isaac Asimov's "The Complete Robot" on my iPod.

I'm trying to read a lot of books at the same time. I just finished reading a Hendrix bio, now I'm reading an Eric Clapton, Bobby Orr and a Jim Morrison biography.

The Great Heroin Coup: Drugs, Intelligence, and International Fascism.

The Great Heroin Coup raises awkward questions. The first half of the book concerns French intelligence, the OAS, the Corsican Mafia and the CIA, the Ben Barka affair, and the story of Christian David; the second half examines the CIA and Mafia in the Golden Triangle, Cuban exiles in Florida, the Nixon-Vesco connection, and the CIA's infiltration of the DEA in Latin America.


Excellent book!

Just bought The Iceman: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer. I watched an interview they did on HBO with Richard Kuklinski (Ice Man) a few years back before he passed. I'm gonna try and start reading something other than magazines for a change........

I'd been like end of the interview lol cause it was bad enough he said "you almost made me mad" but he still kept his cool which was really scary for someone with that kind of temper. Yeah my jaw almost hit the floor looking at the level of brutality and lack of remorse. He constantly said it was all business. After reading about his childhood, I often wonder if a lot of it didn't steer him in the direction he chose. It mentions savage beatings (so hard he would often be knocked out) by his dad and his mom pretty much turning her chair around facing in the opposite direction when the beatings happened. His dad actually killed his brother by striking him so hard but blamed it on a supposed fall down the steps. Not condoning Richard's actions by any means but going through that as a kid would have to do something to you.....

Motley, I think I may have read that book Iceman. Or it might have been one of those true crime books with some short stories about different killers. When was it published? He was one scary man. It's been a while though- does his family still live in Jersey I wonder?

I actually haven't read any books in probably 2 years. I used to read in bed, but my husband said the light keeps him up, so I stopped. But now that it is summertime, I can read in the evenings and not worry about missing any of my favorite tv shows. I am actually going to a book sale at our local library that they hold every year. For $5, they give you a paper grocery bag and you can fill it up with books, magazines, and this year they're having vhs too. I am so excited, because I've always been a big reader, and I feel like my brain is going to mush since I stopped. I learned to read when I was 3 or 4, well before kindergarten, and have always been reading something.

I'm like you, Pitt. I love reading and have been doing so forever. I hate romance books and I'm not big on bios and autobios. I did read the two Crue books and I read Brian Head Welch's Save Me From Myself, but that's about it for me.

jDoc,

Yeah, but what do you read when you're not on the john? [Razz] [Big Grin]


I ordered a few books off Amazon that came this morning. "Jurassic Park", and "Halting State".

I can't believe that I've never read JP before, I love everything I've ever read from Michael Crichton. He's sorely missed. [Frown]

I've heard that JP is much darker than the movies ever showed, so I'm really looking forward to starting it.

Halting State Description

Halting State Wiki
This book caught my eye, so I thought I'd take a chance on it.

It certainly has an interesting premise, and the fact that it was written in the 2nd person makes it different from the norm.

I'm off now to watch the USA vs Spain in the Confederations Cup semi-final. (Soccer)

How many Americans are even aware that this game is on? How many Americans care.. [Big Grin]

I found this very interesting article about quantum physics and the universe. It's amazing how many shapes are formed in space...  - http://stateoftheart.popphoto.com/blog/2007/11/quantum-physics.html

I totally scored at the book sale this morning. I got 14 books, one small cookbook, 3 vhs tapes (Youngblood, Nightmare on Elm St. I and II in a twin pack, and a Mickey Rourke movie that I can't remember the title) and about 6 dvds, including The Terminator, Universal Soldier, and The Hills Have Eyes. I think I am going to go again tomorrow. I wanted to get a few audio books, but there was this woman who literally just picked most of them up and threw them in her bag without even looking at the titles. She got all the good stuff; anything that was left was stuff like instructional manuals. I imagine she will be selling the stuff on ebay tomorrow.
