Very quick read, just under 200 pages.

Excellent and disturbing book, true story. This one is about a guy who was born in a North Korea prison camp completely unaware of the outside world and his eventual escape.

It sheds a new light on how low humanity can go.

I will be reading Gone for Soldiers when I finish with all these.

If you love history, then Jeff Shaara is the best author for you.

I've read all his books. Also read his book on Shiloh if you are a Civil war guy

Currently Snow Crash.
I'm only 30 or so pages into it, but so far it's not a bad read.

The thing that bugged me about that book was that Blomkvist's daughter was able to see that the cryptic numbers were bible versus.

How the hell did she figure that out when noone else for four decades did?

About 1/3 of the way through A Dance with Dragons. I read books 2-4 of the series in the past 2 weeks as well. Really looking forward to how this translates to show

Didnt she go to a religious school and they had just finished studying one of the passages referenced, then they used that to reference the rest of them? She recognized them (the numbers) as an archaic way of referencing the pentateuch (the first five books in the Hebrew Bible) it used a five digit number to specify book/chapter/verse instead of saying Lev 20:16 they used 32016, the first digit is the book then next two is chapter and third is verse...I don't believe the country was particularly religious as a whole at that point in time

I am going out and getting the other two books tomorrow.

I watched the french version of the film on Monday and spent the last two nights watching parts of the American version.

I have to say I like the American version better (so far).

Just finished this one last night. It was a quick and very interesting book. I was happy that it talked about a lot more than just the bin Laden raid. It was cool to see how their tactics evolved over the course of the war.

I remember all the controversy with this book, and after reading it, I suppose I could see where the DoD would be upset about its un-vetted publication.
