One of the Easy Rawlins mysteries. It's a GREAT series, set in the late 60's in L.A.

An account of the struggle between the House of Lords and the Government of Mr. Asquith.

Highly recommended!

I'm pretty sure New Jersey was weird first. I've lived here all my life.

One of THE most exciting and interesting books I have ever read.
Whilst reading it, you often forget it's about one of history's most ruthless and merciless leaders, who also can be held responsible for the lifes of about 40-50 million people :shock:

This book sometimes pictures him as almost sympathetic at times and as a poet.

Great read and I therefore suggest everyone to go and do exactly that.

Enjoy the book, I'm pretty sure you will.
You'll be surprised how much fun a guy like Stalin had during his many exiles :wink:

I have had Stranger in a Strange Land for over 20 years but have not read it because I tend to read all of an authors works and then have nothing left of theirs to read. So I saved it until now!

A double biography of Jacky Fisher and Lord Charles Beresford. Highly recommended!

Fear God and dread nought!
