Yeah there are a few writers who have a knack for confusing punctuation. Can't say it ever really affects me but I just don't get it. China Melville's most recent book was the same.

under the dome would have been quite high up on my all time faveourite books list if it wasn't for the terrible ending, that said i can't for the tv show.
Will seek them out then, cheers mate! I don't like to know the ending is poor but hopefully our opinions differ, I will just be sat waiting for it to end badly haha.

Re: The Book thread.

Just read:

Lee Child - 61 hours

Simon Beckett - Whispers of the Dead

I think these two will be the last books I read in a while

How come? Just no time, or didn't enjoy them enough to make you want to read more?

Re: The Book thread.

I'm currently reading "The Casual Vacancy", so far I am hooked.

I enjoyed both books, but a part of me feels that I need a brake from reading. I read too much when I have the time

Taking a rest for a couple of weeks shouldn't hurt. Plus I'll probably spend some hours on searching for new thrilling books to read after my break is over

Do not listen to that part of yours. There is no such thing as reading too much.

Re: The Book thread.

Yeah I have to agree with Dunk20, unless it's research or for work, reading isn't something you generally need a break from as there's always something there, if you enjoy it.

Re: The Book thread.

Got one of those wacky kindle discs so planting some new stuff on there. Currently re-reading Dreamcatcher. Makes me want to rewatch the movie to see if its as shit as I remember.

Re: The Book thread.

Also, how can you need a break from reading?! Moving house next week and with all my books etc packed my kindle is the only thing stopping me from losing my mind.

Re: The Book thread.

I go through these phases where all I read is non-fiction and I'm stuck in one now, a sociology and anthropology binge, to be precise. I need a novel that might pull me back into reading for nothing but the entertainment value. Any suggestions of something fairly recent (just so that it's unlikely I've already read it)? I'm open to pretty much anything so long as it's well written and has a coherent plot.
