    hrmm Dracula's not bad... jumping from diary to journal and back and forth can be annoying but it's decent. Frankenstein was good.

    Vampireslayer in the Trollslayer series is decent...

    A Cool Moonlight. I'm using it for my book report.

    Atticus is cool. Saw the movie in sixth grade and liked it.

    Just finished Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami and A People's History of the World by Howard Zinn.

    People's History was good, but it's not subject matter that I'm not already familiar with, so it didn't blow me away or anything, although you can clearly tell why it's as influential as it is. Basically just bought it because it's just something you have to read because it is what it is, I got a pretty good narrative out of it and a few good specific stories, but it's not a telling of history I'm not already acquainted with. If you're not familiar with the likes of Zinn then it's one of the 2 or 3 books that you need to read right now, though.

    Hard Boiled Wonderland was a Murakami novel so obviously I loved it, although it's not one of my favorites. Definitely amazing though, and if you're not familiar with Murakami go buy every book he ever wrote. A Wild Sheep Chase and Norwegian Wood are in competition for my favorite.


    Ordering Notes from the Underground by Dostoevsky and What We Talk About When We Talk About Love by Raymond Carver in a bit.

    Just going to put this out there, I read some of Zinn's work for my history class last year, and I really couldn't stand it. Still, that's just my opinion.

    ps got The Jungle by Upton Sinclair and Ghengis Khan and the Making of the Modern World by Jack Weatherford the other day. About half way through Ghengis Khan now, apparently lots of smallish factual errors, but overall it's a cool narrative of Khan's rise.

    Also no one fucking goes in this forum I'm moving this to misc.

    Move to Strike-- Perri O'Shaughnessy

    It's a court room drama thriller. I find thrillers a quick read and most people who don't really read usually read thrillers and than have warped ideas of superiority.
    I read about just everything, but it's really hard to find time when everyday something goes on.

    I've still got Pride & Prejudice & Zombies on standby, along with Tarzan & The Foreign Legion. I just haven't been in a reading mood for a while...

    Haven't had time to read a novel so I've been going to Barns and Nobles after work and picking up U.S. News Special Collectors Edition's that touch on specific topics. Just picked up "Secrets of America's Best Generals." George Washington, what a character.

    the jungle is rather disappointing. the writing is pretty dry and doesn't really have any feeling to it, not surprising that the book attracted more attention to the sanitation of the meat packing industry rather than the plight of the working man, which was sinclair intent, considering he doesn't really express anything very well. i find myself skimming over most of the pages.

    The Neverending Story by Michael Ende. I'm really enjoying it; it's nice to take a trip in a fantasy world ever now and then.

    It's the only one I've read so far though. Maybe I should get hold of the others.
