    book about courts, trial, judges, verdicts

    Hi, I am looking for a book where the plot would take place around a trial in a court, with judges, attorneys and verdicts. I'm looking for the whole court process that would be described in a book . Kafka's "trial" is cool but I am looking for additional books, fiction and non- fiction. Any...

    New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival ???

    Had anybody been to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival ? How is that? I mean, is it a sort of a commercial tourist-trap, or is it something with a soul ;)? We are much into Jazz - but we can not decide if this festival is a **must-visit**, or is it better to postpone our...

    Indian movies: an observation

    I've been to India some time ago, and in almost every hostel we had a TV in our room. What completely irked :eek: me in the movies: the actors do not look Indians! Outside the door, in the streets - you see noisy, colorful, smelly, dirty India. You put on an Indian movie- white people...

    Poetry stuck in your mind

    Does poetry get stuck in your mind from time to time? - I mean either in English or in your mother tongue? Every time that I know I must do something and I am too lazy to do it, these lines come to my mind (So annoying!)

    Gustave Flaubert

    Funny, but though Flaubert's "Madame Bovary" was chosen as the book of the month in April 2008 discussion, I did not find his entry here in "Author Discussion" sub-forum. However, I was interested in his other novel, Salammbô. Had anybody read it? Here is a weird thing from wikipedia...

    Actors and a talent to speak

    Should actors know to talk, in their everyday life? I just saw "Last Samurai" with Tom Cruise. At the end of the DVD he gave an interview. I thought to myself, "let's see it, he must know now A GREAT DEAL about Samurais and their culture". It went like that: Tom Cruise; "You know, I...

    Rafael Sabatini

    Something in the Alexandre Dumas thread deeply reminded me of other books that I liked as a kid. Rafael Sabatini (the author of "Captain Blood") is another such romantic writer, whose books I enjoyed back then, along with Dumas' romances... I believe that whoever liked Dumas' "The Count of...

    Tell me what you read and I'll tell you who you are

    Had it ever happened to you - you enter somebody's house, give a glance over the bookshelves, and you can figure out who is the person? I found myself scanning people's bookshelves automatically as I enter. If I enter a girl's house and it is full of cheesy romans (including "Little...

    Bee Movie

    Just seen the Bee Movie. I went because I like the Seinfeld's show. I had lots of expectations - I guess this was my mistake. The movie is cute, well animated, has some touch of Seinfeld's "family humor". It is also a "green" movie, emphasizing that animals are living creatures - and that...
