    Finished Lars Brownworth's The Sea Wolves which is a concise account of the Viking era from around 790-1100. Very interesting and enjoyable read.

    The only book I've ever read was the Di vinci code, great book.
    I tried to read angels and demons shortly after it and it was brain overload never finished it!

    Finally got around to reading this classic over the weekend and thought it was terrific! It's aged pretty well in terms of how it was written. UK stuff doesn't generally age well as nobody talks like a * anymore.

    Speaking of *.... Going to start another classic tomorrow!

    In the last part and is *ahem* heating up. Easy read, dissapointed the copy I have is the above. Always think books with images from live action films or TV shows are tacky.

    That was my point. Old American books age better than old British books - my fault for not making that clearer :50:

    Just finished. There is another short story after it called 'The Celestial Omnibus' which was pretty decent too.
