Excellent book, albeit one about very hard-to-read subject matter. I read it almost 10 years ago, and I still remember it vividly.

I just started reading Caim by José Saramago. Back in the late '90s I read quite a bit of Saramago (right after he won the Nobel Prize), but it's been a while. Caim is the last novel he wrote before he died. I'm enjoying it very much so far. It's got that typical ironic, humorous tone, but it's also very human and real.

Read The Last Temptation by Kazantzakis? Interesting take on the JC story mind you in terms of sheer weirdness and JC, Behold The Man by Michael Moorcock wins hands down.

Wasn't bad but Stephen King did manage to put his killer clown thing in WTF is that about i don't know. I thought the ending was weird, with a capital W but overall not a bad read.

Not a great King fan to be honest read a couple of them years ago. The man can write in that 'page turner' manner. Was more interested in the JFK theme seeing as TV is inundated with programs about the 50th Anniversary of his death. Also wanted to see if he went with that arsehole Oswald or go for a conspiracy theory, but no goes the lone gunman and as for the ending fuck me.

Just about to start The War That Ended the Peace Margaret MacMillan

You see Parkland? Another Ho hum view... I too went at it from a JFK perspective. Letters of JFK is being read on national radio and I will buy it. Interesting early liaisons he had with companion of Hitler. Also may watch a JFK prog tomorrow featuring Rob Lowe. Trailers look good.

You read Mailer on Lee HO?
