I really enjoyed the Sharpe books, myself. I read them all in a fairly short period of time, bar the one which was published later. The "backfill" books were mostly a bit less interesting, but I kind of enjoy learning my history through the prism of fictitious action.

I checked the book out on Amazon and bought the first one, The Fifth Knight, with some of my Digital Credits. It sounds very interesting. Thank you,

I came to the Sharpe books knowing little about the Penninsular Wars other than the fact of them and that Wellington won them; now I feel conversant with both the major battles and the grand sweep of the action. I also find fiction a good way to approach a historical topic; I can fill in later with a serious, nonfiction work, but it helps to have the framework for a starter. Cornwell gets the history right, too, a critical element. The books aren't perfect, but the characterizations and the dialogue are excellent.

Now into Randall Munroe's How To - great fun and informative. Also, is there anything Chris Hadfield HASN'T done?

Finished reading Fall or Dodge Goes to Hell by Neil Stephenson. Enjoyable enough, but long.

Going for something a little shorter: All You Need is Kill by Hiroshi Sakurazaka.

Just finished:

This Earth of Mankind by Pramoedya Ananta Toer. Written while in prison, it's about the Dutch colonial period in Indonesia. From a historical perspective I found it very informative and interesting. As a novel (in terms of narrative and characterization) it's not particularly special.

Next up are two books by Teju Cole for my local book club.

Which was also good fun. A period of history I knew only in broad outline. So straight onto the next in the series, The Lord of Ireland.

I'm reading:

What I Saw: Reports from Berlin 1920-1933 by Joseph Roth, a selection of his journalism from the Weimar years. This is not Isherwood's Berlin.

Think Fast, Mr. Moto by J.P. Marquand, the third of the Mr. Moto novels. These period pieces are both fun and more nuanced than you'd expect about the situation in Asia in the run-up to WWII.

I'm reading Rebecca West's This Real Night, the second book in the Aubrey Trilogy.

I'm listening to Bob Nuefeld's excellent Librivox reading of Nathaniel Hawthorne's Twice Told Tales.

help

When I go the What are you reading page, I get a blank page. I know its the settings, but I'm not sure where I went wrong.

Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks,

Z.

Just finished "reading" Ancillary Mercy (Audio) by Ann Leckie.

I think that the narrator, Adjoa Andoh, is very talented and has such wide range of voices that every character was distinct and consistent throughout the series. She did a superb job for a very good trilogy.

I've been reading Elements of Horror: Earth from Redcape publishing. Short stories themed on the element, with 3 more volumes coming for Air, Fire and Water. The quality of the stories is outstanding in this one. I hope the others are as good! Love a good monster story.

This one wasn't my favorite in the series. There seemed to be a lot of conveniences. When something needed to be done there was always someone with the skill and resources available. Everything was just so perfect. One group of people need weeks to arrive at a location and another just a few days under mounds of snow where food is somehow plentiful. Still it was fun to read and explore a new land. Hopefully, the next one will be better. Rated C- [3 stars].

Next TBD
