    A chance to win one of four copies of this book, written by a very good friend of ARRSE. It is a thriller set in current times with contemporary events surrounding a character very similar to Assange. Quite a good bit of squaddie type humour (sans swearing!) and is a good easy to read book. Well worth a punt at the quiz which comes at the usual price of pure humiliation if you get the easy questions wrong.

    Entry form can be found here.

    Still a week to go on this competition to get a good read. There are a lot of wrong answers so I suggest that a little research prior to answering the question may be in order! :crash:

    You do, of course, realise that your post was actually the kiss of death for this one don't you.

    WINNERS & ANSWERS - The Ninth Circle

    Well that was a good competition - only seven, yes 7, people had all three questions correct!! So well done to those 7 but unfortunately I only have 4 of these books to give away. The lucky 4 winners are:
    stokers-plaything
    SJRM_RN
    Miner
    AlienFTM

    The answers to the questions are:

    Q1 - Comedy, as reflected in The Divine Comedy means : Reflecting beliefs in an ordered society

    Q2 - The former Chairman of the KGB who went on to lead the Soviet Union was : Andropov. Both Putin and Kruschev had been in the KGB but neither were Chairman and Putin did not lead the Soviet Union, he was (and is) the leader of Russia.

    Q3 - The hamlet which was evacuated along with Imber Village was: Par Hinton. The other two names I made up.

    Once again a case of RTFQ [​IMG][​IMG]
