    I read it for the first time this year and loved it. Earlier in the year I read Buddenbrooks and I'm not sure which one I think is better.

    I'm chipping away at the Greek tragedies still. I kind of wish I didn't read 3 different versions of one story (Libation Bearers, Electra, Electra). Right now I'm wrapping up The Trojan Women. Man, Odysseus was a real dick.

    Part of me wishes that the entire saga starting from Pelops to Odysseus and back to Orestes/Iphigenia would be turned into an HBO series.

    Will be receiving Plato - The Republic, Sun Tzu - Art of War, Lao-Tzu - Tao Te Ching and Ori Hofmekler - The Anti-Estrogenic Diet tomorrow. The first 3 are nice coffee-table books and the latter is something I plan on devouring straight away. Besides that, got Napoleon on the Art of War and American Psycho with a piece of paper halfway next to my bed.

    Anything in particular that you can elaborate on? I may just have to go to the library and check it out.

    I have not.
