Run. Wine. Dance.
Hi JayLooks like it's a good book. And thanks Stephen for taking the time, spending money and most importantly, giving my son an important gift he's so happy about. Bless your heart...Love, MUM
It is. :) I'm halfway through it.Stephen is from Shelby, NC. :)
So, who is Memnon of Rhodes?=P
He's quite a character. Very honorable. Apparently, he was the only one in the Persian side that could have actually stopped Alexander the Great (resulting in a not-so-Greek-influenced world had it happened), but unfortunately he died rather early. :( I must say he is one of my heroes now. :P
Damn. Would have loved to borrow that book. I love historical fiction. It's like getting the facts, but with the fun of storytelling and a little poetic license.
Amen to that. We really are siblings. :DI am currently saving up for The Afghan Campaign by Steven Pressfield (author of my favorite, Gates of Fire). It's a pretty hefty RM55.00. =/
Ouch!I remember reading 'Gates of Fire'. Although I forgot what it's about. Is it about the Spartans?
That's right. :) Specifically about the famed Battle of Thermopylae. "300" and all that jazz. :P
I remember really liking that book. Didn't watch 300 though. I saw the poster and the men without armour and was like, "Ok not watching that."Good film that you MUST watch: Slumdog Millionaire.
Historical value of 300: 1/10.Entertainment value: 8/10. :)Yeah, I've been hearing SO much about Slumdog. Will definitely get a DVD copy or watch online. :)
