    excellent series. I've read them all. . .twice. It's been a few years, but i loved HMS surprise and Wine dark sea. You'll be able to speak like a pirate, or a royal naval officer, by the time you're done with the series.

    haven't been reading much in awhile, but I finished this book the other day



    Definitely was engaging. Usually this kind of genre doesn't interest me, but since pretty much everyone who's read this book has raved about it I decided to read it for myself.

    i would advise to read the book before the series starts on HBO on the 17th, i think there's a 15minute preview of the first episode on the 3rd

    Quite possibly the only man in America who loves UFO as much as I do. (And yes, of course they have their own chapter).
