  1. Great! I found my next read. Thanks.
  2. I've been reading The Gallows Pole by Benjamin Myers, a historical novel about coin clippers. I think. Early days.
  3. Thanks, William! I appreciate it! Sorry, REG! I'll tell them to swim faster As for me, I haven't been very lucky with my reading of late. Even very good books aren't grabbing my attention. I think I'll need to go back to non-fiction for a while.
  4. Yeah. I'm feeling tempted into a reread to be honest. Maybe next month.
  5. I was very sad to hear that. It's a great read. Thanks for sharing it.
  6. I read the same two books as a pair also. I was looking for balance, I suppose. In the end, I liked them both. Hope you do too.
  7. I have started Autonomous by Annalee Newitz.
  8. He kinda liked it, for sure, but he is well aware of the horror too. He was an extraordinary individual over all, though. After you've read it, I advise you to look up the rest of his biography.
  9. If you like books of this sort, I would highly recommend Storm of Steel by Ernst Junger. Takes a little while to get going, but holy moly, once it does...
  10. Inspired by this thread, I am now reading With the Old Breed by Eugene B. Sledge.
  11. I enjoyed his series, Tyrant, which is now complete. I hope that helps!
  12. Funnily enough, I prefer his historical stuff. *However*! The editing can be absolutely appalling at times with massive contradictions even on the same page. Stuff like, "I was sent to climb the wall because I was tallest..." and on reaching the top of the wall... "The enemy soldier swiped and missed me because I was so short..." etc. If you can get beyond that, though, the fight scenes are great.
  13. Starting Rage of Ares by Christian Cameron.
  14. I'm reading The Troop by Nick Cutter. So far so good.
  15. I have just started Adrian Tchaikovsky's Dogs of War. Enjoying it a lot so far.
