Amputation in fiction: Captain Hook

Peter Pan is a great… I guess we can call it franchise. It’s vivid, interesting and appealing to both children and adults. Much like modern Shrek. Shrek, by the way, has a cameo of the play villain, Captain Hook, in second installment of the series.

Amputation in fiction: The Lost Symbol

Dan Brown is one of the greatest literature discoveries in the recent years. His most famous book is Angels & Demons, which led him to international stardom. Much of the book criticism is based on Dan Brown not being the first one: a number of guys raised the same topic of religious symbolism before Brown, including Umberto Eco. Well, those books passed unnoticed by the general public because they are damn boring, while Angels & Demons is a page-turner.

Losing fingers in fiction: Berkem Al Atomi “The Marauder”

One of the books I’ve read in the hospital trying to drift away from concerns about loosing a finger, was Berkel Al Atomi’S “The Marauder”.

This is an awesome post-apocalyptic story.
