    If Aquarelle is stil eyeing this thread, this is a good series, it prominentely features historical reinactors, and I can think of at least a couple characters you'd probably like.
    Yes, it came out in the beginning of September (or was it October?). Anyway, it's out as of just recently, and i'll get my copy on monday

    Although, what I actually had in mind (four different possible interpretations - the ambiguity is intentional) shouldn’t really matter to someone for whom there is nothing outside the text.

    In the last 2 nights before bed, I read a book (Anastasia Absolutely) from one of my favorite series as a child, the Anastasia Krupnik books. So great!!

    For my trip I got The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I really enjoyed The Shadow of the Wind, so I think it should be good.

    That would have been a mistake.

    But you are talking with me, not with someone for whom there is nothing outside the text (which, additionally, is still unfolding). Please speak your mind, you don't usually hold back your opinions.

    You consistently fail to read my tone accurately; perhaps I do yours. Either way, I'm bored by long-winded explication for people who insist on taking themselves/others so seriously.

    I've stated my opinion of the book in brief (which is the purpose of this thread). If you want to have a discussion about post-structuralist literary theory it might be best to start another thread.

    Huh. I finished The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo last night, and I've got to say... it really was lacking in substance. The first couple hundred pages kept my attention but the last six-hundred-and-whatever I burned through, hoping the story would get better.

    For a supposedly feminist book it sure doesn't seem to speak very highly of women. Blomkvist screwed, what, three of the main female characters? Berger, fine, but what was the point of the tryst with Cecilia Vanger? And Lisbeth?

    I'm totally at a loss. Lisbeth really is about as deep as Lara Croft. What the hell? Why even have a rape subplot with Lisbeth at all? Some sort of analogy (w.r.t. Harriet)?

    I don't get it.

    Where is the contradiction?

    I suppose you think it's 'empowering'...
