Bret Baier does a rehash of Grant's bio while building up to the actual events, He's laying the foundation and giving you insight into how Grant's mind thinks and works. I'm currently in the chapter dealing with his time in the |Civil War. So far it's good.
Here's a screenshot of a section starting at "As news came"..does it remind you of anything?
I got the wife the second book for Xmas, borrowed the first off my Mum.My girlfriend read this and really liked it.
Finished re-reading Anderson's The Broken Sword. Darn good stuff. Though Three Hearts and Three Lions is the more influential work to D&D, I'd say The Broken Sword is by far the better book.
Just finished listening to the audio book of Broken Sword borrowed from the library. It was very enjoyable.
I'd be interested in your thoughts on the book once you've finished it. I've heard of it (the author used to write for the Cracked.com website) and I've been curious as to if it was worth hunting up a copy.I've moved onto John Dies At The End by Jason Pargin. It promises Lovecraft like horror but with a lot more comedy. Not my normal cup of tea but we'll see how it goes.
Both of Bill Clinton's collaborations with James Patterson were good IMO. After looking at the description I'm interested to see what you think of it. It's only 7 dollars for the kindle.I'm about to start reading Hillary Clinton's new novel, mostly written by Louise Penny (called State of Terror. I believe it's about a Secretary of State who has to deal with a terrorist plot. Clearly Clinton pulls from her own experience, but only reason I'm reading is because Louise Penny is probably one of my favorite authors I've discovered in the last 5 years. I'll keep y'all posted whether I recommend or not.
Well, if this tells you anything - I read the entire 486 page novel last night. Basically from when I posted that to 2am my time (8 hours later). It was completely unbelievable and throughoughly enjoyable - basically everything I expect from a political thriller. Some of the characters were pretty reminiscent of real world people - as expected.Both of Bill Clinton's collaborations with James Patterson were good IMO.

I'm reading Doctor Strange and Silver Surfer Epic Collections, as they become available.theyfe wonderful inspirational material for D&D.
Finished last night. I think it's a good read. The author does a great job of getting across how unknowable and terrifying the horrors in this book are. The humor is also pretty good and helps relieve the tension. However, this book is VERY graphic, the humor and horror can both get incredibly raunchy, and there are some really racist jokes as well*. If you don't want those things in your leisure reading then skip this book.I'd be interested in your thoughts on the book once you've finished it.
