[2008/08/10 12:24] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Right up my street - I'm really into Sharpe, so I have a feel for the period. I love the idea of bringing magic into it.

[2008/08/10 12:25] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I find I sometimes have to persevere with King to get into a story. The Stand was like that for me.

[2008/08/10 12:41] Groovy Magic: of course kic

[2008/08/10 12:41] Groovy Magic: please do

[2008/08/10 12:41] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Ludo and the Star Horse by Mary Stewart

First off, I have to admit this is a book I've only read once. My "dog-eared" version is actually on audio cassette (and read SUPERBLY by Paul Eddington) given to me when I was five or six years old.

It's the story of an eleven-year-old Bavarian lad called Ludwig and his faithful horse Renti. While being far from "true life drama" it's just the thing to put that storm-damaged palm-leaf shelter in perspective. Give me a desert island over a snow drift any day! I can't say much more without spoiling the story, but the imagery and dialogue have remained with me for over thirty years. It's a lovely tale of fantastic adventure, love and friendship which still has a message whether you're as young as I was or as old as I am(!) It speaks of courage, bullying, danger, lust, loyalty and greed. Add to that themes on euthanasia, family, animal welfare, poverty, etc. and what looks like a kid's book at the first page will stay with you long after you finish the last.

[2008/08/10 12:42] Strangie Vaher: How do I read something that faded really quickly?

[2008/08/10 12:48] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: E-mail them to me and I'll knock up something structured.

[2008/08/10 12:49] Commander Quandry: It would be fair use

[2008/08/10 12:49] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I have another two books to go... may I cram No.2 in at this point?

[2008/08/10 12:49] Groovy Magic: how long should it be?

[2008/08/10 12:49] Groovy Magic: please do

[2008/08/10 12:49] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Not too short, not too long, Groovy. lol

[2008/08/10 12:49] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Utopia by Thomas More

I haven't read this book for many years but I remember thinking "why yes!" every few paragraphs. It's basically a prescription for a happy land, thinly disguised, I recall, as a story of chance meeting. Sort of an opposite to the Ancient Mariner! The word "utopia" seems to be only used in a derogatory fashion these days, as if to strive for a better world is somehow silly. But many of More's ideas (eg: those on health care) are so "obvious" it's staggering that their implementation still eludes us today, despite their value being appreciated. I'm sure that not every idea in the book has stood the test of time, but if any castaways are washed up with me, we could do worse than refer to Utopia when we build our island society.

[2008/08/10 12:49] Scathach Rhiadra: lol

[2008/08/10 12:49] Eshala Tabacznyk: whats your email addy then Kick?

[2008/08/10 12:52] Strangie Vaher: I can have a go

[2008/08/10 12:52] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Go for it

[2008/08/10 12:52] Strangie Vaher: I used to read a lot of fantasy

[2008/08/10 12:52] Strangie Vaher: one of my fave series was The Belgariad by David Eddings

[2008/08/10 12:52] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: My missus is Eddings mad.

[2008/08/10 12:53] Commander Quandry: Now we're talking

[2008/08/10 12:53] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: What's it about?

[2008/08/10 12:53] Strangie Vaher: The characters are very sardonic. just my sense of humour

[2008/08/10 12:53] Commander Quandry: Read all of Eddings fantasy

[2008/08/10 12:53] Strangie Vaher: it's pretty standard fantasy

[2008/08/10 12:54] Strangie Vaher: boy discovers he's sorcerer king

[2008/08/10 12:54] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: What is the demarcation between sci-fi and fantasy? Or is one a subset of the other?

[2008/08/10 12:54] Strangie Vaher: I would say that sci fi is science based, technology etc.

[2008/08/10 12:55] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: OK

[2008/08/10 12:55] Eshala Tabacznyk: Hi Henna

[2008/08/10 12:55] Strangie Vaher: but fantasy is magic so you don't have to have an excuse for why something is possible

[2008/08/10 12:55] Nexie Raviprakash: futurustuc

[2008/08/10 12:55] Lambchop Magic: Fantasy is magic?

[2008/08/10 12:55] Eshala Tabacznyk: oooh chat lag

[2008/08/10 12:55] Commander Quandry: SciFi should be plausable - at least in a future sense

[2008/08/10 12:55] Hennamono Morpork: Got back in eventually!

[2008/08/10 12:55] Commander Quandry: Fantasy doesn't have to be

[2008/08/10 12:55] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I see.

[2008/08/10 12:55] Commander Quandry: Magic, Gods, etc.

[2008/08/10 12:55] Strangie Vaher: yes.

[2008/08/10 12:55] Scathach Rhiadra: Hi Henn

[2008/08/10 12:56] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: So there's considerable overlap in certain books then.

[2008/08/10 12:56] Nexie Raviprakash: fantasy in not based in rl

[2008/08/10 12:56] Commander Quandry: There can be

[2008/08/10 12:56] Strangie Vaher: although the story has been done a thousand times I like Eddings humour

[2008/08/10 12:56] Lambchop Magic: Hi Henn

[2008/08/10 12:56] Dylan Lefevre: Guess that puts Terry P in his place then?

[2008/08/10 12:56] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: lol

[2008/08/10 12:56] Eshala Tabacznyk is Online

[2008/08/10 12:56] Commander Quandry: Dune would/could be classed as Science Fantasy for instance

[2008/08/10 12:56] Nexie Raviprakash: a made up world

[2008/08/10 12:56] Strangie Vaher: yes, it's got both

[2008/08/10 12:56] Commander Quandry: it is set in the future - but is has a mystical element

[2008/08/10 12:57] Nexie Raviprakash: there is science fiction fantasy

[2008/08/10 12:57] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I suppose The Force makes Atsr Wars similar then

[2008/08/10 12:57] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Star Wars

[2008/08/10 12:57] Scathach Rhiadra: oh, you have just reminded me, I loved Dune

[2008/08/10 12:57] Commander Quandry: To an extent

[2008/08/10 12:57] Hennamono Morpork: But there is mysticism in RL so is it fantastical?

[2008/08/10 12:57] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Dune seems to be hated or loved doesn't it.

[2008/08/10 12:57] Lambchop Magic: I loved it

[2008/08/10 12:58] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I took one look at the thickness of the spine and ran from the shop.

[2008/08/10 12:58] Strangie Vaher: I saw the movie. David Lynch is God

[2008/08/10 12:58] Scathach Rhiadra: well the book was much better than the film

[2008/08/10 12:58] Lambchop Magic: but ruined by films and games

[2008/08/10 12:58] Hennamono Morpork: Dune: first four books ok but after that bad

[2008/08/10 12:58] Nexie Raviprakash: the spice

[2008/08/10 12:58] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: That your aftershave Nex?

[2008/08/10 12:58] Lambchop Magic: LOL

[2008/08/10 12:59] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Has anybody not nominated a book yet?

[2008/08/10 12:59] Groovy Magic: me

[2008/08/10 12:59] Nexie Raviprakash: me

[2008/08/10 12:59] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Go on then Groovy.

[2008/08/10 12:59] Hennamono Morpork: Nominated a book - as in truly great?

[2008/08/10 12:59] Groovy Magic: i would take "The Pillars of the Earth" by Ken Follett

[2008/08/10 12:59] Eshala Tabacznyk: books youd take on a desert island with you Henna

[2008/08/10 12:59] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Not exactly Henn

[2008/08/10 13:00] Lambchop Magic: ones to take on an island with us

[2008/08/10 13:00] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: And reasons why Henn.

[2008/08/10 13:00] Hennamono Morpork: Long ones then...

[2008/08/10 13:00] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: tell us of Pillars G.

[2008/08/10 13:00] Nexie Raviprakash: ooh not heard of that g

[2008/08/10 13:00] Lambchop Magic: not heard of that

[2008/08/10 13:00] Strangie Vaher: is there a book called "How to get off an island"?

[2008/08/10 13:00] Groovy Magic: set in the middle ages, it has just about everything

[2008/08/10 13:00] Groovy Magic: and its long

[2008/08/10 13:01] Groovy Magic: it touches all your emotions

[2008/08/10 13:01] Hennamono Morpork: Still Life With Woodpecker

[2008/08/10 13:01] Nexie Raviprakash: whats it about

[2008/08/10 13:01] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: What genre would you say it was Groovy?

[2008/08/10 13:01] Groovy Magic: fiction

[2008/08/10 13:01] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Strangie: I considered The SAS Survival Handbook, but thought it was a cop-out!

[2008/08/10 13:01] Lambchop Magic: wow it follows history though, sinking of White Ship etc

[2008/08/10 13:01] Groovy Magic: it shows how life was at the time

[2008/08/10 13:02] Scathach Rhiadra: is it a thriller?

[2008/08/10 13:02] Lambchop Magic: thank you seems something I would enjoy

[2008/08/10 13:02] Hennamono Morpork: It caused me to get together with my wife and we're still together 20 years on so it can't be that bad!

[2008/08/10 13:02] Groovy Magic: what a struggle it was for ordinary people

[2008/08/10 13:02] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I like it when a historical novel can "educate" you without actually seeming to. One of the reasons I like Sharpe.

[2008/08/10 13:02] Groovy Magic: there is some intrigue in it

[2008/08/10 13:02] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Is it set in this country G?

[2008/08/10 13:03] Eshala Tabacznyk: just read the plot syn online - sounds good Henna

[2008/08/10 13:03] Nexie Raviprakash: must take loads research

[2008/08/10 13:03] Groovy Magic: yes kic

[2008/08/10 13:03] Lambchop Magic: love Sharpe esp. Sean Bean

[2008/08/10 13:03] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Well, he's not in the books, sadly.

[2008/08/10 13:03] Groovy Magic: its about the building of a cathedral...hence pillars of the earth

[2008/08/10 13:04] Lambchop Magic: I shall have to have a read

[2008/08/10 13:04] Groovy Magic: well worth it

[2008/08/10 13:04] Nexie Raviprakash: i havnt read much historical stufff

[2008/08/10 13:04] Groovy Magic: you now nex?

[2008/08/10 13:04] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: yes Nex... the trick is to not let the research show I suppose. Let it com,e across "naturally"

[2008/08/10 13:04] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Go for it NExie.

[2008/08/10 13:05] Nexie Raviprakash: mm i got lag but il try ty g

[2008/08/10 13:05] Hennamono Morpork: Research is vital in history

[2008/08/10 13:05] Nexie Raviprakash: Harper Lee's to kill a mockingbird

[2008/08/10 13:05] Hennamono Morpork: Puts me right off when I notice a book is wrong!

[2008/08/10 13:05] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Good one Nexie.

[2008/08/10 13:06] Nexie Raviprakash: hope over prejudice

[2008/08/10 13:06] Nexie Raviprakash: and the man as an involved father

[2008/08/10 13:06] Hennamono Morpork: I'd nominate Cryptomnicon apart from the dreadful Scottish bit - bad history!

[2008/08/10 13:07] Nexie Raviprakash: black vs white

[2008/08/10 13:07] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: It's bittersweet though, isn't it. Not all the Good Guys win.

[2008/08/10 13:07] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Realistic

[2008/08/10 13:07] Nexie Raviprakash: set in 1930s

[2008/08/10 13:07] Lambchop Magic: sad?

[2008/08/10 13:07] Nexie Raviprakash: yes but very beleivable

[2008/08/10 13:07] Lambchop Magic: ty

[2008/08/10 13:07] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: And a rare one cos the film does it justice.

[2008/08/10 13:08] Lambchop Magic: Oh does it I have seen the film but they are hardly ever as good as the book

[2008/08/10 13:08] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Agreed Lambchop. This is an exception to the rule.

[2008/08/10 13:08] Hennamono Morpork: Film does which justice? Am I still too laggy to make sense of stuff?

[2008/08/10 13:08] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Mockingbird

[2008/08/10 13:08] Nexie Raviprakash: only wrote one book and that is it but brlliant

[2008/08/10 13:09] Hennamono Morpork: Ah -agreed!

[2008/08/10 13:09] Nexie Raviprakash: not a big book either but contains so much

[2008/08/10 13:09] Lambchop Magic: I will add to my list of to read then

[2008/08/10 13:09] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I have only reread it once since school, to my shame. But i watch the film once or twice a year.

[2008/08/10 13:10] Dylan Lefevre: ok did anyone else see vapour trails?

[2008/08/10 13:10] Nexie Raviprakash: harper lee's to kill a mockingbird is a must

[2008/08/10 13:10] Lambchop Magic: ty

[2008/08/10 13:10] Hennamono Morpork: Perhaps we should do desert island movies?

[2008/08/10 13:10] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Congrats Nexie - I think that's the closest to "Literature" with a capital "L" we've come today, lol

[2008/08/10 13:10] Lambchop Magic: No Dylan

[2008/08/10 13:10] Nexie Raviprakash: oh

[2008/08/10 13:10] Dylan Lefevre: oooooooooooooookkkkay...............

[2008/08/10 13:10] Scathach Rhiadra: did you mean when Groovy went

[2008/08/10 13:11] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Flashbacks Dylan?

[2008/08/10 13:11] Dylan Lefevre: I wish!

[2008/08/10 13:11] Nexie Raviprakash: im glad i managed that

[2008/08/10 13:11] Lambchop Magic: Sorry Dylan wasn't being funny

[2008/08/10 13:11] Scathach Rhiadra: her particles

[2008/08/10 13:11] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I'm itching to share my third choice if it's OK with everyone...?

[2008/08/10 13:11] Groovy Magic: yes please kic

[2008/08/10 13:11] Scathach Rhiadra: go on Kick

[2008/08/10 13:11] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome

This is a relatively new discovery for me, having only arrived on my book shelf about two years ago. It's an account of some late-Nineteenth Century layabouts messing about out of their depth on a boat trip from Kingston to Oxford. Unlike most of my favourite books, it's not been reread. Not once. There are two reasons. First is superstition; I enjoyed reading it so much that I fear revisiting it now may dilute its effects one day when I really need them, such as when I'm a bit down-in-the-dumps about being marooned on a desert island. The second and main reason is that my health isn't what it once was. I did try to reread Three Men in a Boat once, and had it confiscated by my wife when my laughter actually turned to choking. THIS IS THE FUNNIEST THING I HAVE EVER READ and coming from a lifelong Douglas Adams fan, that's one helluva endorsement.

[2008/08/10 13:11] Nexie Raviprakash: yes shoot

[2008/08/10 13:12] Dylan Lefevre: With you on that one

[2008/08/10 13:12] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: ty D

[2008/08/10 13:13] Lambchop Magic: haven't read that book

[2008/08/10 13:13] Eshala Tabacznyk: another for my bookstore trip list :)

[2008/08/10 13:13] Hennamono Morpork: 3MiaB - read it as a teenager thought it brilliant but haven't revisited it since

[2008/08/10 13:13] Strangie Vaher: wow. it's only £2 on amazon. i'll give that a go

[2008/08/10 13:13] Nexie Raviprakash: oh i'll go for that then - i do need to break out off my gothic obseson

[2008/08/10 13:13] Groovy Magic: sounds like a must read

[2008/08/10 13:13] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Eshala, could you comment on the others on your notecard? We seemed to skip them.

[2008/08/10 13:13] Watt Gothly is Online

[2008/08/10 13:14] Eshala Tabacznyk: oh ok

[2008/08/10 13:14] Hennamono Morpork: I think it was a favorite of Adams

[2008/08/10 13:14] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I didn't know that Henn

[2008/08/10 13:14] Eshala Tabacznyk: Bill Brysons autobiography Life and times on the Thunderbolt Kid was one of my choices

[2008/08/10 13:14] Strangie Vaher: not read that yet.

[2008/08/10 13:14] Strangie Vaher: love Bryson

[2008/08/10 13:14] Eshala Tabacznyk: I haven't read it yet but he is one of my favourite authors. His travel books are packed with witty insights

[2008/08/10 13:15] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I was bought that for Christmas but haven't got into it somehow. His stuff is brilliant though.

[2008/08/10 13:15] Strangie Vaher: Walk in the Woods was hilarious

[2008/08/10 13:15] Eshala Tabacznyk: I've read pretty much all is travel books

[2008/08/10 13:15] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Agreed - Walk in the Woods almost made my list today.

[2008/08/10 13:15] Eshala Tabacznyk: agreed Strangie

[2008/08/10 13:15] Eshala Tabacznyk: made me want to go walk it myself lol

[2008/08/10 13:15] Hennamono Morpork: Not read much Bryson - my wife does though

[2008/08/10 13:15] Strangie Vaher: I bought hiking boots

[2008/08/10 13:15] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I've been in situations like WitW and it's SO accurate - the tantrums and the panic.

[2008/08/10 13:16] Hennamono Morpork: What situations?

[2008/08/10 13:16] Eshala Tabacznyk: my 3rd choice was Urban Dreams Rural Realities by Daniel Butler & Bel Crewe

[2008/08/10 13:16] Nexie Raviprakash: its funny how people can get on so well even like the same art or films but when it comes to boks

[2008/08/10 13:16] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Hiking miles from anywhere and arguing over which way to go, running out of food, weather closing in... lol

[2008/08/10 13:16] Eshala Tabacznyk: this couple move from London to a dilapidated Welsh farm - his dream of heavern, her idea of hell

[2008/08/10 13:17] Hennamono Morpork: I was there last month! :-)

[2008/08/10 13:17] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Is it factual Esh?

[2008/08/10 13:17] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Heaven or Hell henn?

[2008/08/10 13:17] Eshala Tabacznyk: the book is very funny as they both give their accounts of life there in the first year

[2008/08/10 13:17] Eshala Tabacznyk: yes Kick its factual

[2008/08/10 13:17] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: OK

[2008/08/10 13:18] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I might well look that one up.

[2008/08/10 13:18] Hennamono Morpork: It was hell at the time but the sense of achievement when it was over was heaven!

[2008/08/10 13:18] Nexie Raviprakash: is it dont 1 at atme

[2008/08/10 13:18] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: lol

[2008/08/10 13:18] Nexie Raviprakash: at a time

[2008/08/10 13:18] Groovy Magic: no nex, free for all

[2008/08/10 13:19] Eshala Tabacznyk: they write a month each - alternating

[2008/08/10 13:19] Lambchop Magic: LOL sounds a good read

[2008/08/10 13:19] Strangie Vaher: That sounds great

[2008/08/10 13:19] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I've come across that device before... it's great to see the previous chapter's author from another point of view suddenly.

[2008/08/10 13:20] Groovy Magic: it sounds great

[2008/08/10 13:20] Eshala Tabacznyk: yes I quite like seeing an alternate view

[2008/08/10 13:20] Nexie Raviprakash: i like the sound of that i thought when bought "lets talk about kevin" it would be like

that but its wasnt

[2008/08/10 13:20] Nexie Raviprakash: it was just her

[2008/08/10 13:20] Strangie Vaher: oh god that was an effort. i failed

[2008/08/10 13:20] Nexie Raviprakash: i gave in

[2008/08/10 13:57] Scathach Rhiadra: can we include Haiku

[2008/08/10 13:57] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I'm not into poetry at all, but the group is all about broadening horizons.

[2008/08/10 13:57] Nexie Raviprakash: why no

[2008/08/10 13:57] Commander Quandry: Limericks?

[2008/08/10 13:58] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: But not the one from Bridget Jones Commi!

[2008/08/10 13:58] Strangie Vaher: we could do User Guides and Manuals

[2008/08/10 13:58] Commander Quandry: Don't think I know that one

[2008/08/10 13:58] Groovy Magic: lol

[2008/08/10 13:58] Nexie Raviprakash: i think 1 each or unlees its haiku then maby 3

[2008/08/10 13:58] Lambchop Magic: Poetry is sounding so much better then User guides I must admit

[2008/08/10 13:58] Scathach Rhiadra: lol

[2008/08/10 13:59] Strangie Vaher: rofl

[2008/08/10 13:59] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: There was a young lady from Ealing, who had a peculiar feeling,

[2008/08/10 13:59] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: etc

[2008/08/10 13:59] Groovy Magic: lol

[2008/08/10 13:59] Lambchop Magic: LOL

[2008/08/10 13:59] Nexie Raviprakash: poetry can encompass nursery rhymes too

[2008/08/10 13:59] Groovy Magic: now youre talking

[2008/08/10 13:59] Lambchop Magic: I still remember the Ode th Timothy Winter from school

[2008/08/10 13:59] Groovy Magic: jack and jill

[2008/08/10 13:59] Scathach Rhiadra: how much do you want us to write about our books Kick?

[2008/08/10 13:59] Lambchop Magic: so I will choose that

[2008/08/10 13:59] Hennamono Morpork: As I suspect Scathach knows I post the odd haiku in OUSA Buddhism

[2008/08/10 14:00] Scathach Rhiadra: yes Henn, I have seen them

[2008/08/10 14:00] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: I think anything up to a screenful... it's not compulsory for people to read it, so there's no need to feel you should keep it really really short.

[2008/08/10 14:00] Nexie Raviprakash: yes perhaps 1 nursery rhyme - with history what it means and 1 poem which has had a personal sentiment to you

[2008/08/10 14:00] Lambchop Magic: ok, I can cope with that

[2008/08/10 14:00] Nexie Raviprakash: how does that sound?

[2008/08/10 14:01] Scathach Rhiadra: sounds good

[2008/08/10 14:01] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Agreed Nexie - it's important to be able to justify our choices, however feebly. Otherwise we may as well just swap notecards and bugger off immediately, lol

[2008/08/10 14:01] Scathach Rhiadra: lol

[2008/08/10 14:01] Lambchop Magic: LOL

[2008/08/10 14:01] Nexie Raviprakash: nursery rhymes are important as they are the first way that we learnt as children a little story

[2008/08/10 14:02] Groovy Magic: i can do nursury rhymes but not poetry

[2008/08/10 14:02] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: If anybody feels like reading aloud, I think that would be nice. No pressure on anyone else to do it, obviously.

[2008/08/10 14:02] Nexie Raviprakash: and they are passed down through generatons and reflect culture

[2008/08/10 14:02] Nexie Raviprakash: i think i might manage who killed jack sparrow

[2008/08/10 14:03] Nexie Raviprakash: lol

[2008/08/10 14:03] Kickaha Wolfenhaut: Not Kick Crow?

[2008/08/10 14:03] Nexie Raviprakash: lol

[2008/08/10 14:03] Groovy Magic: There was once a black bird called Kic...who kept getting on my wick...
