Ok, I’m 29 percent through it and the book doesn’t reveal much…as usual…our wizard detective accepts several requests and missions at once and goes on his way doing them. This time he is at a horror festival and movies shown there, the characters, come alive. Chaos ensues.
Walter Isaacson’s new book about Elon Musk is coming out today. So I guess this book now is the official biography instead of one written by Ashlee Vance?
Reinventing Collapse by Dmitry Orlov.
A humorous explanation of how and why the United States will collapse, just like the Soviet Union did. These days I need as much humor as I can get. The book was written in 2011 and, just like The Fourth Turning, seems to be playing out exactly, point-by-point, like the author predicted.
There was an ender’s game movie, it has been a while since i saw it, and from what i remember, the book is better
My cat is mad at me for slacking reading books and playing EVE instead.
Book 8 of TDF long ago finished reading. After finishing it I felt emptiness of what to do next for a long while.
I’m happy to announce that I recently started reading J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series again. But this time in its original language instead of my native language.
Since I’ll be off EvE for a few weeks I’m starting this book. 400 pages is perfect.
I cannot believe she did it with Julius Caesar and Mark Anthony
Oh, she did much much more than that, like trying to keep her country afloat.
Her son with Julius Caesar, Caesarion, was “eliminated” for good measure when her (and Anthony’s) life ended (and Octavian became the first Roman Emperor as Caesar Augustus). Imagine the kind of genes that young man must have had, with Cleo and Jules as mommy and daddy, if the dice fell favorably at least
A very epic, dramatic and fascinating part of history.
I love reading about history. Can’t decide what parts of the last 3000 years were the most epic. Too many heroes and battles to count.
He was probably a vile one-percenter.
He sure was, probably even a 0.1%'er
But in terms of chances of being a good politician (in his day at least), definitely a chance there.
