    Ever heard of a book called: "Last Letters from Stalingrad? Well, I read an old paperback edition a friend of mine gave to me.

    The book has a few interesting pages in it but, is VERY VERY VERY dissappointing :( :mad:

    Unless you can find the paperback in a used bookstore for maybe .50 cents, it isnt worth the money and 50 cents is too much. :mad:

    You can order a hardcover copy through Barnes and Nobles for about $75.00, which is a VERY VERY outrageous price. The book is VERY thin, I dont recall if there were even 100 pages to it or not, but I do know $75.00 is WAYyyyyyyyyy toooooooooooooo much, to pay for this piece of FAKE literary junk.

    What does ixnay mean? I've heard it for years on American films but still have no idea what it conveys. Please enlighten me!

    Sorry Chris, its just another American slang word for no, or to avoid. Ixnay is like pig Latin. Onay in pig Latin means NO.

    Basically, the book was nothing but a waste of time and money and really was lousy.

    I strongly suggest avoiding wasting any time reading it, its all faked.
