I'm going to try to get this book and read it before I do the entire "Man Who" series in September. I look forward to it very much......

I finished Gates of Fire last night!

All I have to say is:

Leonidas and it feels so good
Leonidas 'cause we understood



Yep, that's right. Gates of Fire was so good I made a parody of some song lyrics using one of the book's characters.

Er, in reality, I'm still kinda numb from digesting all that Gates of Fire was. I'll have some real insights later. For now I'm just stunned.

Hey Duchess. That's what everyone keeps saying. I WILL get it. Just a matter of time. Can't wait to
be able to have the pleasure you all have already had from reading it.

I found it in the local crappy Waldenbooks. I'm very surprised it isn't in most stores you might look. (Although I'm not surprised if the employees aren't able to help you find it.)

Heh, there this page is.....Gates of Fire is amazing. The depth of characters, the details, the circumstances of the people in this book are incredible. Then, when I consider that the battles, the training, the lifestyles of these people heally happened this way....I am dumbfounded. This book is a must read. Do NOT wait for the movie.....
