I think an ongoing thread with book recommendations is a fantastic idea!! :cool: The best book I've read in the past few months was "The Meaning of Night: A Confession" by Michael Cox. It's historical fiction, with a murderer as the main character, and is set in London in the mid-1800's. ...

I loved it! I don't want to get rotten tomatoes thrown at me but in some ways I liked it a lot more than Public Enemies. I would have to agree, Gemini. I was too afraid to admit it, but since you did, I must agree. :blush: I'm only about 30 pages into it and absolutely love it. I like the idea of a...

I agree, teacher. After an initial period of looking back in the book to get to know everyone, it was pretty easy sailing. It was also very helpful to have the pictures of all the players grouped in their respective gang or law enforcement position in the beginning of the book. It was easier to keep...

The book sounds interesting, Nebraska, I think I'll check it out this week. The ideas in there sound intriguing. Certainly, many of the cops in PE were on the take so it doesn't surprise me in the least that they weren't too interested in intervening in the bank robberies. I'm a big believer in cons...

I tend to agree with the urban myth scenario. The Enemies would probably have had to be a little more organized than they were to plan and pull off something like that. Karpis and Dillinger probably could have done it successfully. Also, they pretty much hung around with their own; they would have n...

And to think I just came here to discuss a book I really enjoyed with a thoughtful group of ladies! What a lovely bonus to read the kind words of the author! :welcome: The tidbits were phenomenal. It's obvious that it took an incredible amount of time and work to put it all together. The vintage pho...

Well, as usual, I can see both sides. I absolutely believe that The War on Crime was, in reality, less about protecting the public than furthering the government's and Hoover's personal agendas. However, ultimately, something along the lines of the FBI would need to be formed. What would society be ...

LOVE the cast! Stephen Graham will be an excellent Baby Face Nelson. I think Cochrane is probably Hoover, too. I've been "into" the gangsters of the '30's forever, can't WAIT for this film! It will be interesting to see who they will cast as Ana and Polly..........I'm thinking on who they ...

I love the time period of the '20's and '30's so the entire movie will be a treat for me. However, specifically, I'm interested in the bank robbery scenes and how they plan to portray Dillinger. I know the focus is primarily on him, but if they include all the Enemies that are in the book, I'd like ...
