    I've had this one on the shelf forever, but hadn't picked it up as I figured at 800 pages it'd take me a year to read it. I figured since we just passed the 75th anniversary, I'd pick it up. Two weeks later I'm half way through. Remarkable page turner for a book this size and jammed full of interesting info and I haven't even got to the action yet.

    Has anyone read Le Despit au Vilain? I've heard it compared to Hillbilly Elegy, although it's quite a bit older.

    Fashion, Faith and Fantasy by Roger Penrose

    Fashion is string theory, faith is quantum theory, and the big bang is fantasy. He ends with a section on his own pet theory.

    I am on the second section and so far it is not as negative as i expected, but the big bang section is supposed to be the most negative.

    I am hoping to find a couple good quotes to use in my next book.

    Bridges of Toko-Ri. Just finished Tales of the South Pacific, much better than the $#@!e musical. Almost Heller-esque.

    After you finish that, check out these two:



    On December 7, 1941, even as Japanese carrier-launched aircraft flew toward Pearl Harbor, a small American cargo ship chartered by the Army reported that it was under attack by a submarine halfway between Seattle and Honolulu. After that one cryptic message, the humble lumber carrier Cynthia Olson and her crew vanished without a trace, their disappearance all but forgotten as the mighty warships of the U.S. Pacific Fleet burned.

    The story of the Cynthia Olson's mid-ocean encounter with the Japanese submarine I-26 is both a classic high-seas drama and one of the most enduring mysteries of World War II. Did I-26's commander, Minoru Yokota, sink the freighter before the attack on Pearl Harbor began? Did the cargo ship's 35-man crew survive in lifeboats that drifted away into the vast Pacific, or were they machine-gunned to death? Was the Cynthia Olson the first American casualty of the Pacific War, and could her SOS have changed the course of history?
    I had heard of the Cynthia Olson in the past, and haven't read the book yet, but will be in the next few weeks (hopefully).

    I did finish this one on the Leyte Gulf, and it was great - lots of primary sources/intelligence reports from both sides, and argues that the Japanese accomplished more of their goals than people realized, even with the sacrifices they made. Also discussed the fact that while we had cracked much of their cryptography, they were still able to move around hit us with little to no warning.
