I finished reading Frankenstein midday, yesterday, and it's nothing like any of the movies, if you've not read it before. The book is written as a series of reports to other people about what went on, so right away you're realizing that what really happened is opened to interpretation. Different.

Then, before falling asleep last night, I read Osprey Command #26: Yamamoto Isoroku, a biographical work on the admiral who planned and executed that attack on Pearl Harbor in WWII. One fact that surprised (but shouldn't have) was that the admiral participated in the fighting in the Russo-Japanese War. I was also not aware that a shrine to this admiral was built on the site of his aircraft crash. Odd tidbits.
