The Ice Beneath You

I just finished reading The Ice Beneath You by Christian Bale.  It is a wartime novel set in Somalia and follows the life of a Private during the war, before the war, and after the war.

I must say that a lot of the story seemed to revolve around the main character trying, and failing, to really come to terms with his purpose in life.  In some ways it is a story about how someones life can begin to tumble slowly, and then cascade into an epic downfall.  And after reaching rock bottom, the climb back up to a somewhat 'normal' life, was long and difficult.

Sniper.. Spy.. What?

Mid May Update

I am sure some of you may have noticed I haven't been posting a lot lately.  Truth is I have been kind of hiding in the land of online gaming.  I am running a server for my clan, and babysitting everyone who plays on it.  It is an addiction / distraction which I have been using to avoid 'real life'.
