    At the airport heading up for the Dons v Suns game and I noticed a new book called "House of the Rising Suns". Writer spent the whole of last year inside the club and gives an account of the Suns debut season. Seems interesting so far. Would recommend picking it up.

    I got it the other day, close to finishing it. Not a bad read.

    This isn't the book written by Browny is it, I had the misfortune of reading it (luckly I downloaded it from Itunes for only $9). The first couple of chapters were he is tounging the Hawks hole is very hard to read. He must of had a page minimum as the last 40-50 pages are clearly fillers, save yourselves the trouble.

    Iva's rating, one and a half stars

    That was 'The Rise of the Suns'. This sounds like something else. Can someone give the author name?
