Sorry, it took so long to reply because I was reading the book. Today, I finally finished reading it; so many tragedies, yet what a beautiful ending.


THE HUNGER GAMES!!! I highly recommend it

I just finished Popular Crime by baseball stats magnate Bill James. He's an interesting writer, verbose, opinionated, very logical and organized. Some of the chapters were much better than others, depending on how much I got the sense he really knew the topic the more weight his views carried.

I just started a pulp zombie novel called Deadline that looks nice and light like I should be able to plow through it. I'm already wondering if it's any good though after a quick 40 pages. It appears to be the second installment of a trilogy, although the jacket doesn't mention a third installment at all.

I'm open to anyone's input on it as I'm not very far in, or invested regardless, if anyone has read it. I know there's some zombie readers out there.

I'm currently reading A Tale of Two Cities by Charles Dickens. I read chapters over and over again to understand what's going on, the complexity of the text brings me back to the 1800s or whatever.

It's a worthy read, mate, and I did the same thing with regards to the chapter repetition. It does indeed help. Enjoy.
