Metro 2033 by Dmitry Glukhovsky.

A post-apocalyptic novel where the people of Moscow retreat into the metro after the nuclear holocaust, forming different societies at different metro staions. It has a somewhat antique touch to it, but is different enough to the classics to be interesting.

A follow-up post to my previous post.

Artemis Fowl : the Movie
U.S. release date August 9, 2019. With . . .

Ferdia Shaw as Artemis
I feel sorry for the casting director, who had to interview over 1200 Irish boys, 9 to 13, ere they decided on Shaw. Who knew there were that many young actors in Ireland.

Nonso Anozie
Something different from the book, as Anozie is black, but, not as different as the next change, as Butler is also a racial minority in the book, but there he is an Eurasian.

Judi Dench as Root
Whereas, Root is a male elf in the book. A part originally written for Robert DeNiro, who is now only serving as producer, as is the director Kenneth Branagh. Harvey Weinstein was also suppose to produce, but when he ran into both financial and personal legal problems, he was dropped from the film.

Based on the 8 book series, utilizing the 1st 2  books in the series, Artemis Fowl and Artemis Fowl : the Arctic Incident, by Eoin Colfer. At that rate, if this is a success, we should get 3 more films over the next three years.

Actually, when the 1st book in the series was published in 2001, it was suppose to be a film. It only took them 17 to 18 years to make it.

And then when this series ends, we have Eoin Colfer's next series The Fowl Twins or Artemis' younger brothers Myles and Beckett out in 2020. So, who knows when the films will end.

Next time: 6 of 1 or 6 mysteries + 1 non-mystery

ALEXANDER HAMILTON'S REVOLUTION: HIS VITAL ROLE AS WASHINGTON'S CHIEF OF STAFF by Philip Tucker

A fascinating look at Hamilton's service in the American Revolution and how it shaped both his own political views and his relationship with George Washington.  Full of fascinating details and excellent analysis of how Hamilton essentially created the "Chief of Staff" position in practice, this is a great addition to anyone's library of the Revolution, or American history in general.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
