I love all of them, cause I happen to be a bit of a Tolkien nut, but my God, those books were a bit of a challenge. The Hobbit is easy to read, but then it's a children's book, so of course it's meant to be easy to read.
The Silmarillion was a pretty tough read. I had to constantly check the appendix because I kept getting lost on who was who.

Agreed. No matter how many "boring" bits there are, you know there is always something coming up that is compelling.

I gave up on Illuminatus Trilogy. Way to hard to read

I did buy Children of Dune today. Looking forward to it.

Prey is a thriller and a true page-turner. But what raises Crichton’s books above the average thriller is his knowledge of science and his ability to incorporate that knowledge into his novels to explain, scientifically, what is happening. To make the most astounding plot concepts sound plausible. The concept of the threat to life on Earth in this novel has the characteristics of a maniacal computer game that has insinuated itself into the life force of a modern day plague. It might very well be a ludicrous theory in lesser hands, but Crichton explains it so well that one begins to worry about the possibility of it actually occurring. Perhaps the author is worried as well, hence the ominous warning at the beginning of the book and at the novel’s end.

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives - the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will get out, even if it kills them.

We're on a wrestling forum, and I did like Mick Foley's Tietam Brown, but ... Pride and Prejudice is the shit.

One I'm reading now:



Brilliantly written, Eggers seems to have some natural ability to make his words - and subsequently, the narrative - flow. Its refreshing, and I don't think I've read a narrative quite like that of the main character. Its very understated (the way the character 'talks', describes things, etc) but it's so simple it's brilliant.



And just finished The Behaviour of Moths by Poppy Adams. I was sceptical and didn't expect to like it but it was actually very good, I definitely reccommend that.

You have excellent taste in books. Feed was the start of a series that I think can be pretty incredible and I can't say anything bad about Prey.

Does anybody here use libraries, or do you just buy??

I've got a few books way over that I found recently. I cant afford to pay the fine, but I want to start borrowing more books. I did plan to post the books back in the night when I can't be caught, huzzah! but I want more books. This is disasterous.

On another note, still fucking reading Lord of The Flies.

My library is terrible. Second hand bookshops or charity shops are the way forward, most people give them books when they've read them once and they're in almost new condition.

I haven't been to a library in years. I usually buy books half price, they're dirt cheap that way.

I don't think I've mentioned this, but I don't like Lord of the Flies. I think it's a total fucking farce.
