Welcome to JohnnyDeppReads!
Avast! Hoist the colors! Johnny returned to Queensland for POTC5 filming and the first pic from Bruckheimer has been released!

And just to make us happy, we've seen the first trailer for "Black Mass" with Johnny as Whitey Bulger. Can you say "award season"? Fingers crossed!

We've had news that Johnny's project with JP Donleavy, THE GINGER MAN is finally moving forward.

Got it for Christmas, read well over 900 pages in less than 3 weeks.

Ken Follett is one of my faves. Has anyone else read this one?

As always, his historical fiction is a great way to make history relateable - and his female characters are uncommonly strong and triumphant...

A kind-of-historic one, right!? A story set in.. the 20th century? Round about the world war? blink.gif

Arnelle this has been on my book "radar" for a bit. It does interesting and quite epic. Thanks for you review--sounds interesting.

@Meroko-if you follow the link in amp's post, you'll get some background info. about the book. It does appear to start around the First World War time period.......
