A short book on the philosophy of warfare. This book deals with basic tactics, however most of them no longer apply to modern warfare. A good book for students of philosophy or history.

Dracula

by Bram Stoker

Dracula starts out really well, in and old Transylvanian castle belonging to Count Dracula. Although we all know who and what Dracula is, the main character in the story does not. The narrative style is in the form of letters from different people and journal entries, which is interesting at first but becomes tiresome as the story progresses. After the first few chapters, the story shifts to England, and we hardly see Dracula again. The first few chapters excluded, this book is a waste of time.

The Underground City

by Jules Verne

Underground city is an enjoyable Jules Verne story about people who decide to live in a mine (there is a large subterranean cave in the mine). But unexplainable accidents plague the peaceful inhabitants and threaten to destroy their city.

The Poison Belt

by Arthur Conan Doyle

The Poison Belt is the continuation to the Lost World story with professor Challenger and his friends. A good book for those who liked the characters from the Lost World and want to see more of them, however not a great book. The plot is far fetched and the story is not good enough to make up for the plot. Some humour and interesting details, and short enough where it is not a big mistake to try reading this book.
