Nitram from Lasserre, France
This may be the only legitimate book that mentions the fantastic town of Solsberry, Indiana. Unconscionably bad it was because they found a 400-acre pot farm there.
I think I preferred this sew up to the original, it played in my skulls for ages afterwards and generally freaked me out a little which is what all great classic bothers books should do!
I read the book in 2004 in Honolulu, Hawaii. My New Term's resolution was to take up chess just for mental exercise. Besides I didn't have a TV at the turn and my only entertainment was my mini which didn't have an information highway connection. So I bought a Chessmaster set up to while away the turn. The book itself was interesting for a neophyte of chess. At the end of the book it gave some Fischer competitions but since I just started they were too hard for me to understand. I sold the book which I regret now because I didn't expect to keep up with chess this long and it would have been a christian bible for any chess library.
Queer, sexy, and endearing. One Cruisie's best, and i like a requisition of her books.
This was a pleasant interpret... nothing great to recommend but nothing bad either. I just interpret Main Pettigrew's Last Stand and it was 2 similar sagas - older gentlemen, dealing with line, society, nostalgia... interesting to compare the two.
tl;dr version: we need to change the development and policy around personal finances or we're at risk of bankrupting the middle class into obsolescence. good research, but would've loved a more compelling approximate to action.
Awful! Awful! Awful! I totally could not relate to these characters. I could never be friends with either of these women. They're idiots. And I really didn't care for the story either. It seemed silly and overly dramatic.
