I read some more of 'Goodbye to all that' by Robert Graves. I am going to have to email my brother to check if the rumour is true about the morgue in Munich. Robert Graves was in Munich as a child and he was told that when officials or important people die they put them in a special chair in full uniform or dress for several days with bells attached to their fingers and limbs by strings. This is to make sure they are really dead.
I finished 'Mystic River' today. The ending was incredible, I can truly say I had no idea how it would end. The book wasn't entirely a good read, the middle went on for too long. I think the film will be incredible, films don't tend to stay still for too long.
