I’m hanging to know also???

Druss the legend…

All time favorite book character, I kind of wish they would make a movie of it but not sure if anyone could do it justice.

I found the first 2 eps of the Last Dance good.

Was never a Basketball fan really. All that stuff was going on during my last years of school and the game became hugely popular here in Australia.
I was hooked after watching the first episode, and it gave me a whole new perspective, so much so that I ended up watching a 30 for 30 Doco called Bad Boys about the Detroit Pistons who were kings before the Bulls.

One thing is for sure about MJ, he was a super athlete who was extremely driven for success. The kind of attitude i would love to see on the field in our WT team.

Same here, my wife and her family are all ex basketballers but I could never get into it. I’ve found this doco fascinating and amazed at the way Jordan played and got his motivation from any little slight against him.

Even made up slights against him to motivate himself.

I’m not sure if he is crazy or brilliant being able to do that, a very interesting man. I might even try watching a bit of the NBA when it returns.

Have you read any of David Gemmells stuff Cochise?

David Gemmell is my all time favorite author ever

I.have them all.

Read Legend. His protagonist is an aged warrior i. An un winnable situation.

Raw and realistic.

Everone will find themselves in one of the realistic characters.

Please do yourselves a favour.

Decided to give ebooks one last try and downloaded legend tonight, will start reading in tomorrow.

How did you go with Legend mate?

Been with Telstra for years, never had any problems. Speeds have been ok and customer service has actually been fantastic. Have my FOXTEL through Telstra but will be looking into whether its worth keeping.

Might have to find my copy of Magician. Robin Hobb is my favorite author, I generally only read fantasy too.

I read two Books of the Soldier Son trilogy but found it hard to get through, are her other books better than these?

Looking forward to season 4 of Last Kingdom coming out this week!

Fantastic show and the Bernard Cornwell novels are even better.

Unusually I haven’t read the novels, may have to do that!

Just bought the 11th. one Cochise, haven’t read it yet, but the other ten were teriffic, obviously a lot more detail than the series. He is a great writer and keeps you interested on every page.

100% my style of books, I usually drift more to the medieval fantasy genre slightly more than the more realistic type books. I’ll check it out in the next couple of weeks. Thanks for the tip!

Have you read any of David Gemmells stuff Cochise?

No but just checked him out and will be reading soon. I once read about 22 Raymond E Feist books in 12 months so these could be my new obsession lol. Now to decide which series to hit first! The Last Kingdom or the Gemmell books lol

Feist is fantastic, not long finished re reading them all, if you start Gemmell go with Legend first and then do the rest in order. Sounds weird but its a great way to start his books.
