        Reading some Byron's works and came across "The Prisoner of Chillon"(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Prisoner_of_Chillon http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/The_Prisoner_of_Chillon).



        Think about it, how a place of such intense beauty could inside be a dark dungeon prison where people suffered without freedom.

            I wanted to recommend A book written by Baltasar Gracian

            The Art of Worldly Wisdom




            well,thats a totally interesting book , which consists exactly 300 anegdotes/life examples/wisdom with commentary . Book was recommended by Nietzsche and Schopenhauer so it speaks for itselfs. and it was written almost 400 years ago...you will be amazed how actual it is...i dont know to what it compare,but for me it is a perfect "life user manual" and momentally reminds me of books by Guy Kawasaki (lol yeah...tahts true)


            Great read,amazing analyse of human nature,and all of it in really short 300 articles (usually few lines)

              Charles Bukowski - "Post office"

              amazing book, I love his type of storytelling... keeps you on most of time, not like 90% of boring books I came across...

              I warmly recommend "Post office"...

                Anyone read Bernard Cornwell? It's an English author of historical novels. I bought "The Last Kingdom", book one of "The Saxon Stories" about 9th century Viking invasion into Anglo-Saxon kingdoms. After reading it I bought the next book of the series(only first two books of it released so far in my country) and also "The Warlord Chronicles" series which are Cornwell's interpretation of Arthurian legends. Also planning to get some of his other works.
                The book I read, "The Last Kingdom" I can surely recommend. Author writes a gritty and violent tale of war and conquest with graphic battle descriptions. He embrace the pagan spirit and ideals as he puts courage, strength, pride and egoism over weakness, cowardice and humility while taking a strong anti-Christian and anti-clerical stance.
                I wonder if all of his work is written in same spirit or he takes different moral stances in other books? For sure he writes in a way more then good enough for me to pay in order to find out the answer to that question.

                  Generally, I like to read, especially in the beach. Generally, I like to read a lot about betting, especially pseudo-biographies from bettors living in Las Vegas and this kind of thing. I have also read all Jose Mourinho books and a lot of sports biographies.

                  When I don't read about betting or sports, I like to read some philosophy books, especially from a Spanish author called Fernando Savater. It makes you think about the meaning of life and other important questions.

                    I've read Bernard Cornwell's "The Warlord Chronicles", an interesting interpretation of Arthurian legends. Three fantastic books, great take on Arthurian myth, full of brutal, gritty, gore battles in shield walls. Courage, honour and power of the sword. Pagan, druidic magic, fantastic places and well known characters tweaked by Cornwell in many suprising ways. Highly recommened for all fans of warrior stories.

                        Jack Ketchum's "The Girl Next Door", horror based on real-life story about a young innocent girl tortured by her step family. Very depressing book that can make you a misanthrope.

                        David Finkel's "The Good Soldiers" about Ranger battalion in Iraq. Again very depressing but brilliant book about war and it's consequences, that is death, mutilation, depression, loss, ruin.

                            Yeah, there is also a movie, but the book pissed me off so much that I didn't even want to watch it.
