Do you mean Criminal Intent Anniew? Oops

Oh fiddle. Yes of course I do. I have a sort of malapropism when it comes to names and titles and pronouncing foreign ones. Causes great confusion at school when I send emails asking about Glen Campbell when the kid is actually called somthing like Callum Glen!

This book is just beautiful. I'm up to the novella titled simply "Dramatic Mission"

Try to make room to read Game of Thrones, even if you don't watch it. Especially if you don't watch it (I don't - I love the books too much and don't care to see gorgeously written chapters wrapped up in quick scenes. And the people don't look the way they do in my head).

GoT is the War of the Roses, the 30 Year War and I Claudius - all turned up to 11. Plus occasional dragons.
I was working on a production of Richard III while I was reading the second book, and suddenly struck by the similarities - Lannister/Lancaster, Stark/York. There's even a speech Tywin delivers to Tyrion that is similar to one that Margaret delivers to Richard!
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

Travisina - sounds irresistable. You've sold it, especially the dragons! "Now is the winter of our discontent made glorious summer by this son of Smaug".

I'm reading one of Bill Maher's New Rules books.

Not the cover I have, but I'll be reading this book ummmmm any moment now. I know it probably would be as good as A Fire Upon the Deep or as sublime as A Deepness in the Sky, but its a quick read and Vinge is pretty good.

I did buy three books recently and now awaiting them in the mail:

PartnerShip, by Anne McCaffery and Margret Ball

Leviathan Wakes, by James S. A. Corey

and

Ancillary Justice, by Ann Leckie.

Yup in a sci/fi kick at the moment, the Bill Maher book was just a breather.

I do wonder when the next book - 'Winds of Winter' will come out. Not this year, apparently Sad

Good question. Martin is notorious for long gaps between books Sad

By that do you mean ignoring deadlines and being unprofessional?

Thats how I see it anyway. I'm with South Park on this.

The Witling was fun and clever in places and now before my sci/fi novels arrive I am dipping back into one of my TV obsessions with 24: Deadline. Takes places just hours after Day 8 and so far so awesome!

This one, won all the major sci/fi awards and I am going to see what the fuss is about.

As for Deadline, it was a much smaller and more personal story in the 24 canon and all the better and more refreshing for it.
 
Gauda Cheese
I can see what the fuss is about and I'm 100 pages in.

I've been reading about shrews lately because I saw one in the garden. I wish I could find a novel to hold my interest though. I feel like I have readers block. Frown
