    How great are the characters, though? Herman Wouk was a terrific writer (another book of his is another of my favorites -- The Caine Mutiny). The character development and the different plotlines are awesome.

    I have to read them again. Maybe this summer.
    Winds of War starts basically at the beginning of WWII through Pearl Harbor (1939-1941) and War and Remembrance picks up in Pearl through Hiroshima, Nagasaki and the surrender of Japan and the end of the war (1941-1945). Remembrance delves deeply into the holocaust and the battle stories are epic.

    Great summer reading. Am heading down to Florida with the GF next week, will put a big dent in it whilst sitting at the beach sipping mojitos.

    Read Caine Mutiny a few years ago, may pick it up again this summer.

    These are waiting in the wings:





    And I have a bunch more on my amazon wishlist. I don't read enough to support such a massive reading list.
    I have read all of the O'Brian books -- twice.

    Some recent good ones:

    Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese

    As God Commands by Ammaniti

    Star of the Sea by Joseph O'Connor

    Not to give anything away, but is it at the end of the first book when one of the main characters dies (I won't mention who or how)?

    Just started 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Jules Verne was way ahead of his time.

    Am rereading Winds of War and War and Remembrance by Herman Wouk.

    Can't put them down, just an incredible story. Read them about 10 years ago and forgot how good they were.

    The one about the Mormons was very good. Under the Banner of Heaven, I think.

    No, about a quarter into the second book.

    I swear to you, I read these books over a decade ago, but that one passage is one of the most difficult and painful I've ever read and, although not a biblical scholar, can almost recite by memory the verse XXX quotes "O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! Would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!".

    And when I forget the words, I will go back and read that passage again.

    Actually have it book-marked in my copy of the book.

    Yeah, I vividly remember that passage too. I actually remember where I was when I first read it 4 years ago -- standing on the platform at Newark Penn Station waiting for my train. I was leaning against a stanchion reading and almost dropped the book onto the tracks when I read that whole scene.

    Has anyone read any good bios on Churchill? There are a ton out there but apparently some are worse than others. I don't know which one to read.

    Anybody else find it ironic that people are posting pictures of the book.

    Fantastic.

    Growing up, I can remember old(er)-timers saying things like "I'll NEVER buy a Japanese car", etc. Now I understand why.
    Out-freakin' standing read! Louie Zamperini's amazing story.

    Struggled through 'The Black Dahlia'

    Finishing 'Three Cups of Tea'-liked the first 3/4 of the book-last 1/4 kinda dragging.

    Read it--the murder back story is grisly.

    South Park did a great parody of the Mormons.
