Looks like a good book @Peppe
I’m not 100% sure I would have to double check but I think Christopher Tolkien finished them from his Fathers notes.
Yes - same - hard read
Blood and Fire by George RR Martin.
sounds good pinhead - on my list
Seriously considering The Order of Things by Michel Foucault. The intellectual father of woke culture. History is fascinating and helps us to process, understand & disseminate the present.
Reading this now and enjoying it. Proper science fantasy. Thanks for the recommendation . . .
It’s on my list too now. I’m going to finish the Game of Thrones book I am almost done with, then onto that Malazan series.
An exceptional work. Reading for many days.
I’m reading these again
Great kids (arent we all, deep down, kids, some less deeper than others?) books with sailing involved, a nod to Ransome (Swallows & Amazons, but also a cool guy who cruised the Baltic and married Trotsky’s personal secretary), but IMHO better, and definitely far less dated
Set in my home sailing grounds too
Author grew up on one of Ransome’s boats
