( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

I love fiction .. even fiction based on real events like Gone with the Wind which I just read for the first time last month. Quite a story, rich with detail, interesting characters, fascinating historical detail. And was there a sequel? Certainly the book ended with things (more or less) settled, but ..

Alas, no John D. MacDonald (sp?) is on the list, nor any Tom Clancy .. although the latest of his that I read (Red Rabit) was surprisingly lame. Quite readable, but somewhat improbable and without any real climax. Disappointing.

Slash has an announcement about an old Heinlein novel that's been discovered .. not sure if I'm looking forward to that or not. Some of his stories were hit and miss.

I did read the latest Harry Potter though -- probably the best story of the bunch, and Harry is angry throughout most of the book. Good character development, more of an adult's book than a kids book.

I do want to read about how Germany worked its way out of the Reichsmark disaster in the 1930s .. apparently they issued 'rented marks' .. if anyone can suggest a source, I'd love to read it.

So many books, so little time ..
