I might have to go back and re read them - all I seem to do is remember getting embarrased on the Train from crying - tears of laughter unfortunately. Guess I aint no SNAG

What is a SNAG..anybody?
While a tiger eyed its prey and an eagle raged in a thunderous sky a river of darkness fell upon a burning sun and the wolf cried tis a time to die, thus did the angels weep as power and triumph in those golden eyes did creep.

I found this.

In sociology, a S.N.A.G. is a "sensitive new age guy"; that is, a male person who displays sensitivity towards his relationship with women, and who eschews the more aggressive, "macho" side of masculinity. S.N.A.G. is so called because such men are stereotypically (but often inaccurately) identified by others as being "new age", such as being interested in minority religions, new-age literature, or modern spirituality, as opposed to the type of men who worship beer, football and sex symbols.

I guess that would make me a SNAG then, lol. I don't drink. The only football I like are the world and european cups. Sex symbols? Who needs them when your girlfriend is one, in your eyes =P Lol. I don't act macho at all, and I often help my friends out with their emotional distresses as I am quite an empathic/empathetic person.

Lol. So I think I AM a SNAG =P

Taita started it.

Postby Son of the Silver Fox » Mon Dec 04, 2006 6:18 pm

Many Years ago, while reading in bed with the wife, She let out a sound of disgust and said "GROSS!" and tossed down the book she had been reading. Natural male curiosity led me to pick up said "GROSS" book and explore this River God book. [spoiler]reading about Taita having to wear his severed manhood as a pendant, got me intrigued, read the book and enjoyed it. I had found WS and have since read all 30 books. some a few times, please don't be offended but does anyone else find Taita "cheesy"? I mean the guy invented everything. "He's the Mcguyver of the Pharrohs."[/spoiler]

I find it fun to be reading about the guy who does all that :D It also makes Taita quite a reliable character, when there's trouble.
The four points of the compass be logic, knowledge, wisdom, and the unknown.
Some do bow in that final direction. Others advance upon it. To bow before the one
is to lose sight of the three. I may submit to the unknown, but never to the unknowable.
The man who bows in that final direction is either a saint or a fool. I have no use for either.

Completed "seventh Schroll" for the fifth time

Postby vallabh » Mon Mar 26, 2007 5:19 am

Among all the Taitas novels I read only Seventh Schroll. I am really happy about that. I keep on reading that novel and I have become an addict to that one. I read it during my graduation. Then during masters. Fist job, second and recently I completed again.

I understand from all of ur words that remaining egyptian series has sad endings. But seventh schroll is the greatest of all of them I think then. It has a very tactful ending. Around the time I kept reading these novels the movie series Mummy & Mummy returns too keeps going. So I keep comparing the characters with Brenden Fraser & Rachel Weisz.

Seventh Schroll is the best of all egyptian novels.
