I'm feeling rather nostalgic tonight. Anyone wanna see my first ever Tomb Raider web site?

www.thelastrevelation.com (http://www.thelastrevelation.com)

Used to occupy an earlier domain and began in 1997 when Tomb Raider II first released.

Currently I am reading or I should say re-reading Green Darkness by Anya Seton. It is one of those books that can be read several times and you will still find something new every time.

Howdy Kasia! Been and gone I think, but I'll call another one if you like. Pride & Prejudice was something else! Truly amazing piece of literature and incredibly funny! Right from the outset...

groovy_nub
18-10-03, 04:00
Huh, did I miss it? I thought we were waiting for Scottlee and then it was kind of forgotten about and I did not read any posts about it?? Does not matter I already read it anyways, just would have liked to discuss it!

Here we go... "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife..."

Thatís the opening passage between Mr. & Mrs. Bennet. Their relationship was insatiable, bettered only by the request for marriage from Mr Collins and the overcoming of pride by Darcey to win his English rose Elizabeth.

Just to note, Jane Austin grew up not 30 miles from where I am atm.

I really need to finish the book, the reading of it has been so sparatic that it was hard to get a good wind going in it's sails.

Hi Kasia http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

Sorry, my typo. Austen is correct.

tlr online
18-10-03, 04:36
Mansfield Park. "Dependent on the benevolence of her aristocratic relatives, young Fanny Price develops into the moral center of a family gone astray and restores the tranquility of her adoptive home. Written in the full flower of Austen's maturity, this work offers an entertaining study of the interplay between manners, education, and ethics--enlivened by an amusing cast of busybodies, never-do-wells, and social climbers."

18-10-03, 04:37
Have you read Northanger Abbey, that sounds really good, maybe I will try that one too http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

18-10-03, 04:39
Indeed no. Austen wrote that in 1791 just after Sense & Sensibility although the first impression was rejected. It was eventually sold to Crosby & Co and pressed in 1803.

Dr. Zhivago is a Russian poet who expects to lead an ordinary life with his wife Tonia. But then World War I and the Russian Revolution conspire to screw up Zhivago's life. Zhivago is swept along by the inexorable tide of history, when all he really wants is a simple private life. From time to time he finds it, with his wife, and then with his lover Lara. But time and time again he is swept away from the simple life he has built. His poetry is suspect by the Communists, and his skills as a doctor are needed by partisans. There are two extremes always vying in this movie, passionate love and terrible hatred, the ravages of total war and the simplicity of a peaceful home, poetry and medicine, art and science, feeling and thought.

couldn't find a quick summary of the book. this will have to do, although the movie is always a poor imitation of the book I think this one has enough elements to make me want to read it.

Hi Everyone,

http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/wave.gif

I must say that I find the modern trend of writing books as spin-offs from films/TV programmes (eg: Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Dr. Zhviago) a bit odd and somewhat confusing.

:confused:

Why do people do this?

Yes, I thought 'hoot' was do do with owls, but I was told not! 'Hoot' sounds a bit Scottish to me. Is Tippucat around, she might tell us the real meaning?

I can't believe someone has heard of the book. I think the story is facinating! My mother bought the book while she was in Europe in the 70's and it has that wonderful smell that books get when they are old, I think it fits into the novels plot. :D
