I'm trying once again to finish Godel, Escher, Bach
Are there any books on clones and such? Like them first being treated as dirt, then as humans?
Started reading Under the Dome by Stephen King today and I'm not that impressed so far. Other King books have me hooked by page 20 but this one just hasn't. It seems to be that king was just thinking, "Okay, now what can I slam against the dome?"
Junior's condition gets worse
Not really a spoiler but it foreshadows what happens to Junior. Its quite obvious but who knows.
"Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" by Hunter S. Thompson, yes there was a book before they made the movie, basically its about a journalist and his lawyer who go to Las Vegas to cover multiple events but due to drug use they get sidetracked(if you can call it that), its a good book and it keeps you wondering how they don't get arrested for all the weird shit they do.
yeah i started reading fear and loathing the other day funniest shit ever i swear
also is "a song of fire and ice" good? I like that LOTR type fantasy genre type stuff
I find it even better than LOTR since the story has a lot more nuances. It isn't just the "Good guys vs the bad guys" kind of story. It's about the struggle for power between different factions. It's about politics, schemes, war, love, revenge. There are so many characters and they are so well written that it's so amazing to see them interact with each other.
Going to wait for the second season of Game of Thrones to finish before I start reading the third book. Or else I'm afraid i'll get confused.
I have no idea what game of thrones is but i hear that phrase a lot
Finished Jurassic Park, it was a lot better then I expected. Reading Lord of the Flies now.
Picked up 4 star trek novels for 2 bucks the other day 50c each swap meet (car boot sale) usually 6 dollars each on ebay Apparently all first editions from 1995
Next gen: All good things, Q-squared and Balance of Power.
Picked up this book again.
Still one of my all time favorite books.
"Society had a crime problem. It hired cops to attack crime. Now society has a cop problem."
"Albert Camus wrote that the only serious question is whether to kill yourself or not. Tom Robbins wrote that the only serious question is whether time has a beginning and an end. Camus clearly got up on the wrong side of bed, and Robbins must have forgotten to set the alarm."
Anyone know any books similar to Secure Contain Protect. I want a paranormal horror that instead of focusing on one creature has multiple detailed entries/creatures. And it cant have a movie based on it.
I'm reading the whole series.
Finished Lord of the Flies, pretty good
Anybody know a book that will scare me so much that i'll lose sleep?
Anyone who knows of Alan Partridge should read his book. It is hilarious, I've never laughed so much at a book and I'm only on the second chapter. Even the recommendations on the back are funny:
"Very thourough" - The Norwich Enquirer
"The man of the moment" TV Quick (1994)
Oh yeah also it's called I, Partridge: We Need To Talk About Alan.
Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close
Read it for a class, but it certainly was not a bad book. I disliked the parts with Oscar, and for some reason I was emotionally destabilized during the grandfather/grandmother parts, which seeming rather hauntingly disturbing. Really, beside bad, once-in-a-while funny jokes, the Oscar's parts were completely pointless.
I actually like this book more than the first one.
Oh yeah, just ordered this book
it's going to be a very good post-exam read
Finished One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest yesterday. God damn that was great.
Just started The Crucible by Arthur Miller, haven't been a fan of reading plays before (minus Shakespeare or Sophocles) so I'm interested as to how I will enjoy it
Anyone here read the First Law trilogy? I'm on the last book now and its been a great series so far. It's your typical swords and sorcery kinda book but its got a nice dark/realistic theme to it. Pretty gory too.
Ordered the first 3 Black Company books and Mortal Engines off a second hand book site. Should be here in a week or so.
mortal engines is a fucking amazing series, congrats on the purchase
Read this one a while ago, I'm reading The Drawing of the Three right now (the second novel in the series of seven). The book is a fantasy/western that is a really great read.
Anyone read this? I'm trying to get hold of a copy, but my local library doesn't have one.
Seems interesting, but probably the only way I'll be getting it is through Amazon.
Finished these recently.
