guns germs and steel is finally on my list of "read" books. hooray! it was way good, but the last 100 pages seemed like a big repeat of the rest. i plowed through it anyway to say i did it and in case something new and exciting was revealed. i can't say i caught anything new and exciting but maybe i was plowing too fast. please forgive me if you felt the last 100 pages were the best part ever. and please let me know what you loved about it. in the mean time i'm reading hamlet. for class. i'm impressed with how much i like it so far.
