Almost finished The Fall, got to say I dont get the title, I dont get the start of the book and some of the content doesnt make much sense but its a rollicking good read, character development was great, the individuals where more like how I would imagine real people in those situations, including one of them being a complete bastard the whole time to everyone despite being called on his shit repeatedly. Its kind of an action time travel horror, best book of its kind since I read the Time Machine, after watching the original movie adaptation. Love that film and Wells fiction.

The Child Thief - Brom
This is an awesome, gritty, adult retelling of the original Peter Pan story as compared to the crap Disney keeps shoving down our throats. I much prefer the original legends and stories, and Brom doesn't dissapoint. He takes a lot of the original mythology and ties Peter Pan into it seamlessly. It has many twists and is "adult" enough to hold some of our more darker minded characters attentions without it becoming too contrite.
A good book, awesome plot, and lots of cursing. It also gives a bit of history for Peter, though it is straight from Brom's imagination.Anything that you haven't fought for isn't going to be appreciated. It takes blood, sweat, and a large amount of tears before you appreciate what you have.
