I'm liking it so far. It has a strange scale of time in some ways; it jumps forward two years in the space of a single page, for example, but it's still a really enjoyable story. This is my first experience with Stephen King, and with it being based around something so historically significant I suppose it can only be a good start. Since I saw the film Christine quite a few years ago I'd like to read the original book it was based on too. I'm fairly confident the next book I'm going to be reading is George Orwell's 1984. I haven't posted an update in this thread in over a month. :o
Been a while since I posted here. Read a lot of comic books and several novels. Off I go to read!
Re-reading William H. Hodgson's The House on the Borderland (Italian translation by Gianni Pilo, "La Casa sull'Abisso").
'Killing Kennedy' by Bill O'Reilly.
If all history books were written like this, and 'Killing Lincoln,' students would like the subject a lot more.
Currently reading A Storm of Swords. Recently finished Enders Game and the Sequel Speaker for the Dead. After A Storm of Swords I plan to read The Heros by Joe Abercrombie.
The Rain Maker: John Grisham
Going to be joined by, What IS A Googly? The Mysteries of Cricket Explained: Robert Eastaway (Foreword by Ted Dexter)
Just getting around to reading the Steve Jobs book.
Just finished, an intriguing read.
I am rereading the RAMA series.
Foxfire 3, reading up on how to tan animal hides.
Borrowed. For no reason other than to look smart in front of certain people.
Toll the Hounds by Steven Erikson
Toll the Hounds by Steven Erikson
I'm reading Dust of Dreams by Steven Erikson :)
I read Gardens of the Moon about a month ago. It was a struggle to motivate myself to continue reading it after getting halfway through. I'm glad I did as the latter half improved a lot, but overall the book was a far cry from the platitudes it has received, at least as a standalone book. If this is the worst of the series, however, I'm looking forward to the rest. Starting this tonight:
Got myself a Nook (e-ink) a few months back and am enjoying it.
Age of Reason - Paine (Been too long since I read it last, such a great decapitation of revealed religion)
Glamorama - Bret Easton Ellis (Good after the first hundred repetitive pages or so)
Invisible Monsters - Palahniuk (Loved it)
Various Lovecraft/Howard short stories
Bad Religion - How we became a nation of heretics - Excellent read - "A piercing critique of heresy in a country where "traditional Christian teachings have been warped into justifications for solipsism and anti-intellectualism, jingoism and utopianism, selfishness and greed."
Next up, Sanderson's Mistborn and the Girl w/Dragon Tattoo series. Should tide me over, bring on the final book of the WoT!
Gamadin Book 3: Distant Suns. I'll be on to book 4 later this week.
The Book of Enoch - translated by Rev George Schodde
I reading the entire run of Spawn right now. I am up to 136 now.
Just finished reading Max Brooks' Zombie Survival Guide (Italian translation). Adorable, too bad the zombie genre is mostly **** these days....
A Song Of Ice And Fire - George RR Martin (Seven Books Starting With "A Game Of Thrones" pretty cool stuff!)
