Change "books" to "posts" and it sounds a lot like FYM.

I have them all! I'm certainly not paying to read that tripe.

I'll PM them in a minute.


Da Vinci Code was a decent story that went awry with really awful writing. :shudder: I wonder what a better writer could have done with it.

The source material is very interesting. But Dan Brown is an eighth rate hack. I sometimes think about becoming a writer just to write stories about an eighth rate hack named Dan Brown that constantly gets rejected and dies penniless and miserable. If I could bring such a universe into existence, it'd be totally worth it.

Has anyone figured out that multi-worlds theory in physics? Is it right? Cause I'm game if it'll work. Let me know. Thanks.

I bet that Gabriel Garcia Marquez gets a lot of trim. With a name that cool all he can use IT as a pick up line.

"Hello ladies, my name is Gabriel Garcia Marquez."

Sarah read it recently, and loved it, and has been urging me to read it since.

I don't know too many people that have read it. As you know, I loved it a lot.....cannot believe how long ago it was that I read it!

That reminds me of Inigo Montoya in The Princess Bride.

"My name is Gabriel Garcia Marquez. You slept with my father. Prepare to fuck."

That was post 999, and so it's only appropriate that the thread ends on that note, no?

I'm so happy we finally got a book thread that lasted before it disappeared onto page 50 of the forum or something.

I never start useful threads, so, who will do the honors?

By the way, I never liked Catcher in the Rye.

Good on you for the Hesse mention.
