Ran, that's enough. This is a thread for people who can actually read something apart from the instructions on the box of the inflatable doll.

Now, back on topic...I've recently finished "Pompeii", by Robert Harris, and really recommend it for anyone who's interested in Roman architecture. The first chapters may be a little boring, but you understand their extreme importance later on. Brilliant reconstruction, absolutely amazing.

Also read "The Glass Menagerie", by Tennessee Williams.
Laura's character annoyed me a bit, but Jim's was lively and colourful and he's always surprising you.
I very much liked Amanda, she was like a Southern Mrs. Bennet.
And Tom was the usual rebel, but you warm up to him pretty soon after you get to know him a bit. Lovely play.
"There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of either merit or sense." Elizabeth Bennet
