just finished knife of dreams myself. but the series is going way too slowly now. i don't see how he can end it in only one more book.
for the first time in the last 6 of the series, i actually put off getting it until i had finished something else. (martin's a feast for crows)

The Farm was written in 1933 and depicts, over a period of about 100 years, the early settlers of Ohio and the conflict between the agricultural and the industrial way of life...told through the experience of several generations of the same family.

It's quite good.

Concur completely on Outlaw. One of the best Westerns I ever read and a time capsule on the early and mid 20th century. Kind of hard to get aholt of these days - I got my copy used through Amazon. Very strongly recommended.

Other stuff I've read in the last couple of months:

1. Hammerjack by Marc Giller. Cyberpunk rides again - pretty much a straight ripoff of William Gibson and the last half is way overwritten but it's entertaining nonetheless.

2. Life At The Bottom and Our Culture, What's Left Of It both by Theodore Dalrymple. The first one's grittier, the second one a little more scholarly. Both are gripping reads and biting social criticism.

3. Marxism by Thomas Sowell. An older book pulled from the shelf - Sowell is truly a master of the subject as an ex-Marxist himself. Some really surprising stuff in there.

Merry Christmas, all!

I just finished reading Kings Row by Henry Bellamann---pretty darn amazing novel.

Ronald Reagan acted it the wonderful movie adapted from this book although it's very different from the original...cleaned up quite a bit.

The novel is haunting...and complex. I give it 5/5 stars.

Just finished "Leutenant Hornblower" by CS Forrester.

I love the Hornblower series, there are 11 of them I think. Great stuff!

"Saving Fish from Drowning", Amy Tan

Really odd story and a good read at night.

"The Strenuous Life" - Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt (yes, the former President). Written ~100 years ago, sounds like a modern conservative talk-show monologue: addresses the human condition in the USA, with good answers timelessly applicable.

I read last week on a flight from NY to Seoul. I couldn't put it down. The story is overblown but the bibliography is offers some really great reads.

Recently finished Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card. It's a "concurrent sequel" to Ender's Game. Anyone who likes sci-fi should already be a Card fan. :-)
