Take from me the crown of sympathy...

Last book you read

Discuss books, paintings, thoughts and more.

I figured it might be interesting to see what other MDB fans read. So hence this question: what was the last book you read? Was it good? What did you (not) like about it? Who should read it?

That's a great book! They are all so cynical and selfish, I love it. What do you think about it?


Well, there are too many deaths for my liking but so far it's kind of ok. It's not the best I've read in my live, but it certainly is unique. The theme is really brilliant.

@ Sartavos, 'Waylander is great indeed, briliant character.:) But since David Gemmel died that so long ago, he wont be able to finish the Troy trilogy I'm affraid...

Diego Marani - Nuova Grammatica Finlandese (New Finnish Grammar)

the title is really weird, being it a novel...but it's great...profoundly sad, dark, real.

I'm reading the BRUCE DICKINSON biography "Flashing Metal With Iron Maiden & Flying Solo" by Joe Shooman
It's a very in-depth and insightful read.

I just started in "Ivoren Wachters" ("Ivory Guardians") by Simon Vestdijk (I found my old collection of cheap editions of Dutch literature classics in my parents' attic the other day).
