Heres a book Ive already read and plan on reading again, its; "Amazonia" by James Rollins. I give it a  thumbup.gif  thumbup.gif  thumbup.gif  thumbup.gif  rating.

From the back of the book itself.; "The Rand scientific expedition entered the lush wilderness of the Amazon and never returned. Years later, one of its members has stumbled out of the worlds most inhospitable rainforest-- a former Special Forces soldier, scarred, mutilated, terrified, and mere hours from death, who went in with one arm missing.... and came out with both intact. Unable to comprehend this inexplicable event, the government sends Nathan Rand into this inpenetrable secret world of undreamed-of perils, to follow the trail of his vanished father.... toward mysteries that MUST be solved at any cost. But the nightmare that is awating Nate and his team of scientists and seasoned U.S. Rangers dwarfes any danger they anticipated; an ancient, unspoken terror-- a power beyond human imagining--that can forever alter the world beyond the dark, lethal confines of....Amazonia."

Check the book out for yourself, Im sure you wont be dissapointed.

I will forever believe that anythings possible, no matter how crazy or unexplainable.

I wanna play!
Me just finished read the second part of Laura Resnick's In Fire Forged series. The only thing I can complain about is that it's only a two-part series. if you like fantasy, then you must read these books. absolutely must.

if you click this, the world will blow up

Ya know, a few days ago I found a better explaination(sp?) for Angelfish than "Cus it sounds cool".
But than I realized there was no one around to hear it, and I got really depressed.
I hope you all intend to make me feel better.

The Function of the English Verb by Peter Lewis.

A tad overcoked in places but some truly mind-bending observations about the grammar of intransitives.

And in the evenings I'm re-reading Good Omens by Tezza Pratchet and Neil Gaiman.

Spot the difference.

Intransitives, Thistle, are migrant workers who are here one day and gone the next.  Aslan is obviously talking about the way these people talk. cool.gif
