I read his books at age 8, maybe 10 times each, josselman of roseheim, the count y eguilar wow the memories!!

http://www.goodreads.com/author/list/596650.Marcus_Lehmann

Then I got an unabridged copy of the 3 musketeers, ate up all 1200 pages, after that any thing was game, John Grisham replaced Talmud Bavli and 1000 books later I am probably no wiser but more thoughtful
Seriously you read the full 3 Musketeers? Dumas is very boring at times - mostly because he wrote his books as a serial one chapter at a time, makes him very boring at times especially in some of his other works.

I like that line. Maybe YOU should become a writer.

I used to write.. but then I realized that I was just young and full of hot air..

Book suggestions:
http://www.amazon.com/The-Samurai-Vishogrod-Notebooks-Marateck/dp/0827601905/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394082941&sr=8-1

Like WOW AMAZING ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS EVER!!

I read that book about 7 years ago and I was always hoping the rest of his memoirs would be published and a few years ago I found them!

www.amazon.com/The-Accidental-Anarchist-Bryna-Kranzler/dp/0984556303/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1394083013&sr=8-1&

This would make an extraordinary movie!

Most of his stuff are boring and should be summarized in a 300 page book about. You know he wrote continuations to those books but they didn't really make it.

I tried Victor Hugo Unabridged les misrables, been stuck at page 200 for the last 5 years.

I tried in high school and also got stuck. Then a few years ago I tried again and devoured it in two nights.

No way... signet classic 1400 page one ?! I liked the movie but its too sad..

Man, lets not start with the jewish books I discovered as a kid, Gershon Winkler.. do people still read him? he is responsible for all the nightmares of my childhood.. and this book called "outlaw"

The Ruach Ami series was AWESOME but the newly renewed series was a let down

this guy is nuts but some of it is good http://www.amazon.com/Steve-Stern/e/B000APFWAS/ref=sr_ntt_srch_lnk_1?qid=1394084405&sr=8-1

Micheal Chabon's Yidish policeman's union EPIC CLASSIC

If you frequent Sefer Va Sefel in jerusalem, you'll get introduced to the good stuff. Sadly I keep forgetting to visit and it's been years.

I heard of it, but the reviews basically deflate it
Yeah I know, but that title is epic.
It sounds like some of his other books are really great.
