    Life is like a treadmill. Take ten steps, and you're back where you started. Eventually you start feeling dizzy, and you fall face-first into the handlebars. They rush you to the hospital, and there you're pronounced dead. They perform an autopsy, and discover that there's not a drop of blood in you, not a drop of blood. "He's been dead for some time, he has," the doctor of the dead announces. "Several years, anyway."

    OMG, they are turning Noah Gordon's The Physician into a movie! I loved that book as a teenager. It is a great medieval adventure novel about an encounter between the three monotheistic religions, about the history of medicine and how the three deal with science

    And Ben Kingsley is playing the part of Ibn Sina (a.k.a. Avicenna). Somehow this British-Indian actor keeps playing Persians roles

    Oh, I'm so going to watch this when it comes out!!!

    The Physician is a novel by Noah Gordon. It is about the life of a Christian English boy in the 11th century who journeys across Europe in order to study medicine from the Muslims.

    The book has not sold well in America, but in Europe has been many times a bestseller, particularly in Spain and Germany, selling millions of copies in translation.

    ...

    While Gordon's novel was not a huge hit in the U.S., it topped best-seller lists across continental Europe and a motion picture is currently in development hell[1] in Europe for UFA Cinema und Universal Pictures. A two-part mini-series for the German public broadcaster ARD will also be produced. The German film director Philipp Stoelzl (historic romance Young Goethe in Love) was positioned to direct the historic epic, which has secured €3.3 million ($4.6 million) in regional and federal German funding[2]. The production was scheduled for summer 2012 on location in Quedlinburg, Morocco mole and Romania[3].

    Uh-oh. My headphones finally broke, and I don't have the money to replace them... This is bad... Like, worse than if I was without the internet, to put it in perspective for some of you... (I'm only partially kidding...)

    The Countdown™ is a necessary system in place to announce my departure on Ventrilo.

    In fact, I am going to create a logo for The Countdown™, it will look something like this:

    The book struck me as shallow when I read it a few years ago. I guess that means the film could turn out to be an adequate adaptation.

    Thanks a lot, spoilsports!

    I never claimed that it was high literature, only that I loved it when I was 14, you monster!
