Date for Genghis Khan bookclub?

Posted October 2, 2013 into Book Club by John Birmingham

I'm open to suggestions for a date to discuss this book. I'll be back home by the weekend and could probably do it the following week, but my inclination is to give those who are reading it a another fortnight or so.

Oh yes I'll need at least that extra time, I am finishing off the second David Brin 'Exiles' trilogy first. I have Genghis Khan ready to go on my Kindle.

Some extra time would be good. I'm only about 10% in at the moment ...

Tom Clancy was the writer that started me off on reading techno-thrillers. From there I branched out from reading my usual SF&F to explore whole other modern genres so thanks Mr Clancy. Pity the books I most enjoyed by him haven't been adapted for the screen.

I'd be keen on more time too. Started a couple of weeks ago, but got distracted by Wolf Hall which I'm finding strangely compelling. Mostly something to do with the quite different perspective to Man for All Seasons. I do keep picturing Leo McKern as Cromwell, but only when not reading.

The Kahn book looks really good, but so far the author is in too much of the narrative. I trust that slips off when it gets going.

Yeah...more time please. Only not too much or I will never finish. I admit to struggling. I read a whole lot of history in the pursuit of a BA in Ancient History etc...but the style is slowing me down. Either that or not having a compulsory 5000 word easy at the end... Very interesting topic & some fascinating information. Just a small extension on this assignment please sir!
