Well I finished the book last night. It was pretty good, a little predictable (I guess the 2nd word pretty quickly) but it was still a very interesting fiction story. And the meat of the book (which spurred the earlier conversation) was worth the read. I have gotten some emails regarding my previous post and they suggested some other books that would "rock my Casbah".

I will update you guys when I start reading them. But I think I will start working on the house again since I need to get some things done, like finish the trim work on the stairs.
