Quote from: karlhenning on July 07, 2014, 10:35:29 AMMy aforementioned beloved brother has by now read the entire Canon (and pseudepigrapha ) aloud to my equally beloved sister-in-law not once, but twice. And his doctoral dissertation was on Dickens, so his enthusiasm for Stout is high estimation, indeed.
Quote from: DavidW on July 08, 2014, 06:12:52 AMI've finished The Black Ice, and man do I feel dumb. I just did not see that twist coming. Great novel.
Quote from: Gurn Blanston on July 08, 2014, 06:21:07 AMYeah, that's why I laughed when you ventured a guess. Connelly is just that good. Maybe The Concrete Blonde next?
Quote from: DavidW on July 14, 2014, 07:13:27 AMI'm reading Pursuit of Honor by Vince Flynn. I think that it is a bad sign when I disagree with the protagonist, and sympathize with the guy they've kidnapped. They keep saying "you just don't get it..." well guess what? I, the reader, don't either. Maybe you could explain it? I wonder if it's meant to be satirical? I can't help but notice that one of the terrorists acts in a similarly closed minded fashion, killing people that could have been left alone. The interrogation and murdering of hunters are happening at the same time. I'm going to give Flynn the benefit of the doubt, and say that he is depicting these men of violence and not saying that there is necessarily any ethical right for them to be above the law.Anyway the story is about terrorists attack DC, and CIA spook Mitch Rapp is hunting them down. Simple enough story, what I didn't realize is that this is really part 2 of a story started in a previous novel. But you know what? I don't care. You could write the plot on the back of an envelope. The point as always is to see Mitch Rapp kick ass and chew bubblegum, and he's all out of bubblegum!
Quote from: DavidW on July 30, 2014, 08:21:34 AMI've been watching Longmire on Netflix watch instantly. Really liking the show, good mysteries and characters. None of that csi stupidity, and not a meandering soap either. Just perfect. At least for now. I'm half way through the first season.Anyone else watch the show?
Quote from: Bogey on July 30, 2014, 08:28:09 AMI will give it a try. I made it partly through the Justified series, but it became way too repetitive and the subplots never seemed to end.
