Morning Star
by David Gemmell

10/10

My favourite book and I have read it many times. Its clever, funny, has plenty of action and so forth, and a nice twist at the end which doubles the awesomeness in one go
It's about a theif, a bard, a hunchback, a mute, and a wrestler, who take on a quest, leading a ragtag army of rebels against an invading monarch whose mage has resurrected the evil spirits of long-dead Vampyre kings. Great stuff, pure entertainment

Fatherland...again.

Book is a fictional tale of what would have happened if the Nazis had won the war. In 1960's Berlin during a muder investigation a German policeman and American reporter discover the horrible truth hidden from the rest of the world, the Nazi concentration camp murders. Together they battle the Gestapo as they try and get the proof to US President Joseph Kennedy before his meeting with Hitler in Berlin for Americas help in the war against the continuing guerilla war against the Soviet Union.


A great read for any fan of history or WW2

I think there is a movie based on that with Rutger Hauer, Miranda Richardson and Peter Vaughan. At least if I remember the actors correctly.

Yeah, it wasn't that great though...


Another good book is The Day of the Jackal.

Basically profiles the life an an Assassin and his detailed plan to assassinate Charles de Gaulle in 1963 Paris. A great spy-type novel...

All of those in the last 6 weeks. I find it a brilliant way to waste my teachers' time.

That is exactly the only time I ever read, during teacher's lectures

A few more books I've read recently:

Catch 22: 9/10 very good book, but semi-hard to read. Its a long story and there can be a few moments when you might not know whats going on, but its still an excellent book

The Stranger: 7/10 I know most people didnt like this book because they didnt understand it, but I understood and over all, I still didnt like it. I think I just didnt like because I couldnt relate to the main character in any way.

The Twilight Series: 9.5/10 The movie was pretty much crap, but they always are, so I dont blame it, but the books were pretty good. 2 was horrible and I really wanted to stop reading it, but I kept reading. I think 3 was my favorite(the fight scene was awesome )It had a pretty good story too. 1 was good because that was like the initial meeting of eveyone, and the first book in any series is usually good because of that. 4 was definatly one of my favorites after I got past the first part of it. Once you get to Jacob's version of the story, it gets a lot better.

The Artemis Fowl Series: 9/10 These books are brilliant. love how smart Artemis is, and his "chemistry" with Holly. I loved the butler too.

The Chronicles of Edge: 8.5/10 A very captivating series that kind makes you continue reading it. The only problem it has, is it kind of runs through the story, if it had been a bit more spread out, it would have been a way better series

The Zombie Survival Guide: 10/10 A must for anyone who wants to be considered a threat to the zombie race. I couldnt really find any problem in its logic the entire time I read it

The Catcher in the Rye:10/10 One of the best books I have ever read. I think no more needs to be said.
