    Starkadder

    Written 1985 by Bernard King, a bloody tale of a Norwegian mercenary, Starkadder, in the pay of a mad King of Sweden at the height of the Viking age. Middle third is a bit slow, but the ending is quite good, Nordish Sword and Sorcery.

    Could be better, and a bit illogical, but compared with the silliness of modern novels, decent reading for the mind and the spirit.

    The Poetic Edda Bellows translation. It is good to read and reread.

    Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbra Kingsolver I like it so far. Being connected to the land and food you eat is incredibly important. Helping with a positive food culture in america is wonderful. I am looking forward to making the asparagus& morel bread pudding.

    The Ego and His Own
    by Max Stirner

    Credited with influencing the philosophies of Nietzsche and Ayn Rand and the development of libertarianism and existentialism, this prophetic 1844 work challenges the very notion of a common good as the driving force of civilization. Stirner chronicles the battle of the individual against the collective to show how the latter invariably leads to oppression.

    Last time I read Eric Brighteyes by H. Rider Haggard (yes the one who is responsible for The King Solomon`s Mines). Great, bordering on fantasy novel which takes place in the mediaeval Iceland. Now I wonder whether it may be based on icelandic myths and sagas? Or maybe the author made up the whole thing himself?

    What Are You Reading?

    So, what books are the members here presently reading? What are your impressions, or your old favourites? Feel free to include short reviews or recommendations.

    I just finished The Pursuit of Glory: Europe 1648-1815, by Tim Blanning. I purchased my copy from Shakespeare & Company in Paris whilst touring the City of Lights, and began leafing through it later in the week as I lazed about the magnificent gardens of Versailles on a beautiful, sunny day. The content of this book matched the greatness of my surroundings, and never before had history gleamed so brightly for me from a book's pages. Blanning scales an intimidating peak in this work, illuminating the grandiose seats of power of London, Amsterdam, Versailles, Vienna, Berlin and St. Petersburg, and also the gritty, often ignored pit of history - the everyday life of normal folk. Weaving a tapestry of great complexity, Blanning details the purely economic and communicative realities of Europe from 1648-1815 while also giving the reader insights into the greater movements in the Western symphony (regicides, revolutions, wars, bandits, patriots and rebels, to name but a few of the memorable themes touched upon in this work). All in all, The Pursuit of Glory left me wanting to know more, but not dissatisfied with the work itself, as I can appreciate that such a complicated and broad historical era as 1648-1815 could only be covered at the expense of detail. Blanning, however, has woven fine details amidst the broad range of topics covered, enough to put the reader back into a time of immense change, growth and upheaval in that golden age of battle, commerce, reason, romance and glory. For those with an interest in European history, I highly recommend this work.

    I'm just about to start reading A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway, to put me back in mind of Paris.
