I mean if your like me and wont buy books online for fear of reciving a credit card bill that resembles the national debt in size and magnatude. Well the answer is extreamly hard. The only other Sven Hassel book I have found was a beat up copy of 'Reign of Fire' someone carelessly left on their coffee table, and which I aquired after a convient diversion created by the family dog.
The books are quite good. Sometimes funny, sometimes horrible, sometimes exposing the stupidity of man. Quite an enjoyable read. BUT and it is a big but, like J-los or perhaps an elephants. If your a person like myself, by which I mean dosnt like runners or sneakers but prefers boots, then you may look somewhat suspicious reading somthing with a cover with the SS erm... SS sign in the authers name.
So my advice, get a dust cover of some other less threatening and just plain awful book like 'department 19' A truly abismal book that on the one hand promotes the idea that you shouldnt judge a book by its cover by making Frankinstiens monster (named Frankinstien for conveince, I would have gone with somthing less suspicous but thats just me) a good guy but at teh same time implies that all irish people are untrustworthy drunks only fit to build railroads from London to the god awful North of England. What Im trying to say of course is, dont read Department 19 its crap. In SS General your treated like a grown up who knows the score and you dont see hardened murdeours dudes crying over some tosspot they could care less about in all fairness. AND another thing! In department 19 were supost belive that the main guy is awesome cuz his dad was awesome and his dad before him. ie the dudes good at killing vampires because obviously murdering vampires is a genetic skill that is passed down via the spearm. So how did his grand pappy get so good? The answer is obvious to me and would have made a good flash back. The guys granddad is jack teh ripper. Thats why hes so good at teh killing.

I was not impresed. The techno bable was bad even for a sci-fi-nerd-gamer type like me. Course i bought this book because while looking at Lora Innes books i stumbled arcoss: 'Washington's Crossing (Pivotal Moments in American History) by David Hackett Fischer' and imedetly wanted it... And Zombie Hakci but for a different reason that has nothing to do with trying to make the book shop girl think im deep and mysterious and into poetry. Erm, yeah. So as Im in ireland it takes a unfathomable amount of time to get this book (either, no impressing book shop girl with brain related poetry for me as of yet but ill keep you posted). Yeah wanted Washingtons crossing, not there, five mins to closing, white cover stands out in collage of brown and black fantasy novels means.. *drum roll* I buy this. The beging and middle were okay. Not really fabulous. Book really picked up when the author remembered to mention the spy game part that was really cool. In fact i think the spy bit really saved this novel for me. That and the ending. I loved the ending for two reasons, firstly: Its pay day, which means my broke ass can now aford a new book and secondly: it was a damn good joke.
What I learned from this book.... Scots call chavs 'neds' Amazing thing lanquage. like spelling. compleatly optional. (less)

Its suposta be a kiddies bedtime story but damn if i didnt enjoy it far to much. perhaps thats one of the reasons i cant get anyone to go out with me? Anyway. This book has some beautiful illistrations. I mean its really pretty. Its lovly and has a beautiful soft feeling that i do not see in the other babys books i have. For instance someone would think a pink, red and white book would look soft and child friendly. But it dosnt. No my big french book for babys that i cant undertand a word for (which cover is actually quite soft even if the colours dont want you to think so) has nothing on this book. Also there is a story.
What I learned from this book ...Where my cow was. He isnt there anymore...(less)
