If it don't gots tanks, communists, or a submarine, it goes in Nute's BAD list.

Currently I'm reading "Rainbow Six". It has more pages than the Bible, so I won't be finished with it until MArch or so. But I have to admit it's great.

I don't believe it. I guess I just saw "Terry" and something about a "sword of truth" and assumed it was Terry Brooks. I feel really stupid now.

Funnily enough however, my comments on the series stand. I find Goodkind's story rather entertaining, but I wouldn't call it 'great'. For one thing, he over uses sex as a plot device. I am also certain he copied things from Jordan (namely those Children of the Light lookalikes and the magic women).

It is fun reading though.

Mat is in book 9 quite a bit (Jordan ties up quite a few loose ends as well). I read it completely the day after I bought it.

Try Martin if you haven't already. I can positively guarentee you won't be disappointed. His first book is A Game of Thrones.

'The Bearstein Bears' was a good series.

Yes, R6 has more pages that the BIBLE...
It's a great book. I went from hating Popov through most of it, and he turned out to be my favorite character by the end.
If you like r6, read The Bear and the Dragon. RAINBOW is in it a lot, as are ALL OF CLANCY'S OTHER CHARACTERS: Jack Ryan (of course, RAINBOW, Bart Mancuso, etc.

I actually found Rainbow Six to be one of his lesser works. It didn't live up to the Clancy standard that Red Storm Rising, The Hunt For Red October, Without Remorse, and Clear And Present Danger set for me.

The Hunt For Red October and Clear And Present Danger were his best in my opinion.

That's IMPOSSIBLE and you know it
Although The Bear and the Dragon is almost as good as Red Storm Rising.
I know what you mean about R6. About half the book could have been removed and it would have been exactly the same, but with less people standing around talking about guns.
I've heard rumors about a Rainbow Six movie in the works, but I doubt they could do it...the story's just too long and involved. Too bad a Red Storm Rising movie is totally out of the question

Nitro, there are actually sequels to the "Three Musketeers". These are <u>"The Man in the Iron Mask"</u> and <u>"20 Years After"</u>

Alexandre Dumas wrote another masterpiece called "The Count of Monte Christo"
