What I Plan to be Reading as Soon as I Can Get My Grubby Hands on It

I noticed in today's Age that the second instalment in Arturo Perez-Reverte's Captain Alatriste series - Purity of Blood - is out in English translation. Furthermore, the review mentions that there's to be a Captain Alatriste film later this year with Viggo Mortensen as the captain. An obvious piece of typecasting, that - like casting Antonio Banderas to play Roald Amundsen in a remake of Scott of the Antarctic.

But is there shopping in it?

For shopping you'd have to read his Queen of the South. Lots of fashion in that one.

Thanks for the news about the next book, I thought the first one was great. I think Depardieu might make a good Alatriste, but I think that since the Lord of Rings series Mortensen will find himself in a lot of swashbucklers and such.
