My first thought was that I don't have one. A lot of what I read is either non-fiction or fantasy that doesn't have so much of a love interest, and many of the love stories I have read just irritate me with people who either obsess over each other too much or who either persist in liking the wrong person or fighting with the person they should like.

However, I did think of one fictional couple I do like: Faramir and Eowyn in The Return of the King. Eowyn was all disappointed that Aragorn didn't connect with her earlier, but after her encounter with the High Nazgul, she met Faramir in the house of healing and they were able to connect with each other there. Although only a tiny portion of the book is dedicated to their story, this is just about the only real romance in the entire Lord of the Rings story. (Even the main part of the story of Aragorn and Arwen is relegated to a short piece in an appendix).(less)

It tells the story of Estel, the third of the four so-called ‘helpers’ predicted by the prophet Tisha in the old time to come to Ettria. His job will be to revive the mostly shattered country of Argentan and once more give it a working government.(less)

My Rating - (4 stars) This is a scholarly book about lying. But it is eminently readable. It may not cover every possible aspect of lying, but it touches on all the major points, including the morality – or lack thereof – of lying, the types of lies, the motivations for lying, the psychology of […]

A Clash of Kings by George R.R. Martin
"(A-) 83% | Very Good
Notes: So much tension builds from uncertainty. Nearly everyone is helpless, and so the resolution is always unpredictable."

Archaeological Perspectives on the Battle of the Little Bighorn by Douglas D. Scott
"One of the delightful things about used bookstores is that sometimes you find something you thought you'd never see. This book is one of those.

This book is the compiled results of the 1983-85 archaeological investigations at the two sites of the B..." Read more of this review »
Custer by Jeffry D. Wert
"This is not as good a biography as either Custer's Trials or Touched by Fire. Wert soft-pedals things, like Custer's racism, that Stiles faces head on, and he doesn't offer the kaleidoscopic view that Barnett does. He's also not as good a writer a..." Read more of this review »
