Kind of a difficult and convoluted read. Many actors and events to process. I got the general idea though.


Cheers?

I came into an older copy of J.M. Barrie's "My Lady Nicotine" late last year. Finally started reading it last night. Interesting read!!! Certainly makes one wish they had some "Arcadia Mixture!" cheers FTRPLT

Just finished this detailed and captivating true account of the experiences of the RAF crews in WW II -

"The courage and sacrifice of Bomber Command"

Stick will find this book especially interesting I believe.

I concur with Brewdude on the new Bill Bryson, which I also just finished reading. A couple of pages made me squeamish when he related some incredible stories of pre-anesthesia procedures. Not exactly suitable for dinner table conversation! But overall an amazing book.

By the way, in several of Bryson's earlier books he talks about enjoying a pipe before going to bed. I wonder if he still smokes a pipe?

I don't think so. Seem to recall that I read somewhere he gave it up.

Just finished these two. The first one is a very detailed account of the rise and fall of Al Capone and how Eliot Ness played a role. Lots of interesting facts.

The second was a rather abridged version of the "great experiment" which not only failed but spawned criminal gangs such as Capone's.


Cheers,

RR

Detailed account of what purports to be Hitler's escape to Argentina along with other top Nazi figures along with Eva Braun, and the cover up. Fact or fiction? Conspiracy theory or reality? You decode!

You are right; the one king book I did manage to finish took me at least a year to read. I enjoyed it, but you're right, it started very slow.

On the last book of Lunar Discovery (book 3). Easy read, good hard science-fiction books and real page turner. First book is free on Amazon Kindle.
