*Has anyone ever read any of the Pendergast books? I'm new to them and really like them so far, but what genre would you say they are?
Dimples129 4   04/26/17 06:56 PM
x*You mean the Preston & Childs Pendergast books? I've read all of them.
Beard04/27/17 11:37 PM
x*That's the books. I started off by reading a later one but then started at book 1. Now I'm on book 5 Brimstone. They are sort of all of the genres
Dimples05/02/17 03:13 PM
x*Ya, there's a lot of variability between the Pendergast books, but you have to read the strange ones to find out which ones you prefer.
Beard05/03/17 03:01 PM
x*I was wondering that too. I've done a bit of writing and I imagine myself working with someone to collaborate on a book. I imagine the writing can

cantgetenough03/30/17 09:38 AM
x*i'm about half way thru the writing in this is odd. its two viewpoints. one they write correctly use grammer rules etc. the other is written
Belle03/30/17 09:43 AM
x*Hmmm, maybe I'll wait for the movie. NT
cantgetenough03/30/17 09:53 AM
x*I hate books like that - different viewpoints and sometimes not using grammar properly.
Blockhead03/30/17 09:49 AM
x*I don't mind different viewpoints, but I understand your frustration if the author isn't clear on which viewpoint is being portrayed. NT
cantgetenough03/30/17 09:55 AM

kalliopes8201/04/17 02:33 PM
x*Hogans Heroes was way before the 80s NT
FurnitureAlliance01/04/17 03:32 PM
x*Did not know that. Makes sense as to why then. Maybe it was heavily syndicated in the 80s? Either way, badass book. NT
kalliopes8201/04/17 03:59 PM
