You should read his The Satanic Verses. It's wonderfully sacriliceous.

I finished the book after a long hold. I blame the french loss on Soult and his inability to write orders and general incompetence at being chief of staff, Napoleon for giving bad orders to Grouchy after the battle of Ligny and giving troops to Ney he wasn't allowed to use and finally Ney for only being able to be either super passive or suiciding with cavalry.

Roland Deschain wrote:^ The Man Who Would Be King is great. You'll like it. I'm currently reading Don Quixote by Miguel Cervantes. If anyone else here has read it, do you get the impression that Don Quixote was the very first LARPer? He's absolutely nuts, and really like the character.

We drove around La Mancha earlier this year, talked a lot about Don Quixote and the abortive Terry Gilliam movie of it (there is a documentary called Lost In La Mancha about it). The landscape is just amazing, but it is seriously hot, so you can imagine why Don Quixote went a bit and and saw dragons instead of windmills. Quixote did not have A/C on his donkey to help keep him sane...black bart wrote:I have read Don Quixote and I thought it was amazing...I also did an illustration of Don Quixote when I was young and I based him on Buster Keaton for some reason.
