  • How did you hear about this site?
    Bookcrossing (Billilu)
  1. I'm with My Brother Jack... Haven't seen "Titanic" or "Gone With the Wind"
  2. Thank you for the precis Darkstar. This is another case (heh heh) of the individual being far more interesting than the story written about them. The Vidocq Society has a website. Go to ... http://www.vidocq.org/vidocq.html
  3. If we wheedle enough perhaps we can coerce Billilu to move the site currently in use. (wheedle, cavil, beg, plead, whine, whinge PUUUULLLLEEEEZZZZZZE Bill?)
  4. A book such as "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest", or "Garp" or even my favourite book of all time "Robinson Crusoe" needs several or many readings to get the nuances of the author's intent. An adult reading "Gulliver's Travels" for the first time would get a far different understanding of the book than would a person who had read it as a child, then re-read it as an adult. I have read Robert Stroud's "The Birdman of Alcatraz" probably 10 times and look forward to reading it again.
