    Versinox, I congratulate you on your blog! Consider this bookmarked on my PC.
    Now, regarding your list, I’d like to strongly recommend I, Claudius and Claudius The God for your historical novel reading pleasure. I must warn you, once you read those, consider the bar for that genre raised!

    Haha! Sorry, Zuly. I did forget to put the author’s name didn’t I?
    No, I didn’t get much sleep, why do you ask?

    Well, you might try Galapagos. The fifty pages are kind of slow (very uncharacteristic of him) but it builds up to the greatest punchline in the history of writing. It also contains the most unique narrator! I had a copy, but I gave it to this woman I was fooling around with. She ended up getting pissed off at me and calling me a condescending gigolo. How can I be a gigolo if I gave her something dear to me, I ask you? How?!

    Oh, Zuly, you should definitely check out The Alienist by Caleb Carr. Sure it’s long, but it really is a quick read. I actually didn’t want it to end!
