    So far I'm not exactly impressed, but the idea is interesting and I'll give it at least 100 pages... I very rarely give up on books; if a book sucks, then at some point it becomes part of the fun to find out just how badly it sucks. :cool:

    Thanks BG

    Oh and by the way,i'm very happy with this book because it break the myth of the Sun king being a dirty pig.He bathed and change his undies 3 times a day,and people did not shat behind the curtains in Versaille,they had toilets,yes sir.

    I am in the New York City area around the turn of the 20th century listening to Emma Goldman lecture Evelyn Nesbit about what it means to prostitute one's self.

    Ooh, What book is that one? sounds interesting


    Edited to add: Ok, nevermind. I looked at your book status---normally I don't pay attention to that because I rarely change mine and I've moved on to different books.
