Just for the record, I didn't say that. ;-) :-D

I really enjoyed the His Dark Materials trilogy.

I think that the parallel universes/religion/God aspect to the books was an interesting take on how our lives are/could be if things were just a little different.


***SPOILER ALERT***

It's hard for me to believe that Pullman has no concept of the spirit, as that is what the Daemon's of Lizzie's world seened to be.

Guy seems like he's not playing with a full deck, so why would people/media give that publicity? :-b

Thanks for the links and heads up. Will avoid. ;-D


More publicity even if bad = more book sales. I had not heard of them but they sound interesting, I might give them a try.


I agree with Mookie and everyone else. Da Vinci code was like a shallow action movie in book form, which of course is what a lot of people want... %-6

Oh I understand why he wants publicity, even bad if that's all he can get.

My point was why would anyone want to give him publicity? Ignore him/it and mission achieved. ;-D
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
