The Black Dahlia (graphic novel).
Sketches are great (very specific with charcoal) and the story very interesting but rather complex/difficult to be fully understood.
I think I'm gonna read it twice ^^

If you are interested, there have been multiple adaptations, including the original novel from James Ellroy (mix between a real story and a fiction), a movie from Brian De Palma, and even a video game.

finally started reading it.
Reads like a The Hacker Perspective article but, obviously, a little more like a novel.
I ahave only just started but the experiences in the book also echo many posts here and, self-absorbed as I am, I even wondered about writing something similar.

The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins and The Spotted Dog by Kerry Greenwood.

What can I say? I'm a mystery buff.

Kerry Greenwood makes words dance.

Wilkie Collins does not, but it's arguably the first modern mystery novel and I want to read it.

"The Wilderness War," by Allan W. Eckert.

"The Wilderness War"is an historical account of the British, with their Indians allies, the 'Six Nations,' against the newly declared United States of America.

"The Wilderness War" is primarily an account of the battles in the western American settlements in the western Pennsylvania and New York territories up to the Canadian border from 1773-1780.

Sounds like an enlightening book on the current political battles here in the US.

After you have read the book, and you feel inclined to do so, can you give us your thoughts on the merit(s) of the book? Or, a short critique?
