Just started reading Dearly Devoted Dexter. The second book in the dexter novels. The books are good, but I'm starting to think that the series is actually better. Rare I know.

Personally I think the series is a lot, lot better than the books. You're right though, it is rare for an adaptation to be better than the source material.

Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert. I re-read it every year or two. Excellent book.

Down and Out in Paris and London - George Orwell

I've read it a few times now, and it's still just as good as the first time.

I'm planning on finishing season 3 of The Shield this weekend, before starting Michael Chabons' The Yiddish Policemen's Union.

The 'trailer' for that book was about 10x more awesome than most modern films.

The only novel that ever interested me in the slightest was Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimension.

Any suggestions?

(sidenote: do you find youself reading the Dexter novels in the voice of Dexter from the show? :))

For some reason no, but I've recently started re-watching, for the first time since they originally aired, Six Feet Under. And I do wonder sometimes, if perhaps David Fisher (Michael C. Hall) has a split personality - on the one hand, he's David Fisher, then at night, he becomes Dexter Morgan ;)

Almost done with Towers of Midnight (Wheel of Time). Can't believe I'll have closure by 2012. Gotta give Sanderson credit, he's done a good job so far and I'm glad he's taking a break to reread. Kudos.

The English Patient...

*sigh* well I SHOULD read it, but the dealer doesn't deliver it... or to say: the postman is lazy ?.?

Should have read it by tomorrow... creeps!

Anyone has an ideal how to get a good solid first overview about The English Patient?

I'm not talking random internet comprehensions here. (You don't now how good they are until you have read it yourself for comparison! argh!)

Maybe a good audiobook? Shortened?

Or a good comprehension? (On a further note, I'd like to still read it after tomorrow, so it'd be good to have one, that doesn't spoil the end. (like: leave out last paragraph and you know the book well enough for a first 90 minutes lesson!))
