yah man, I agree with The Shining. Just wondering if there's any books that actually surpass the book for entertainment.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Just got done reading IT again. That will always be one of my favorite books. Sadly I thought the movie was pretty terrible. Of course that was only compared to the book.

Before that I found The Five people you meet in heaven at the laundromat. Now I am not personally a religious person, but I could not help but get sucked into this book. It was incredibly well written, the characters easy to envision, and it was actually a very easy read. A good book to spend an afternoon with. It'll keep you thinking through the next day too.

Re: The "Book" thread.

I've read a lot of Stanford "Prey" series books but I had to stop because it was messing with my head. You see by the last few books I was rooting for the killers because I just started to really dislike Davenport. After hoping that some crazed maniac would get away with a brutal crime and kill a cop I realized I had to stop reading the books.

The books (or maybe there was only 1) that involved Clara Rinker were the best of the series. But again I only feel that way because she was someone that I hopes would kill Davenport....

Re: The "Book" thread.

Yeah that was Certain Prey, and she was awesome.

Virgil "fuckin'" Flowers is cooler than Davenport.

It's due to the telvision version that I watched when I was a youngster that I am so afraid of clowns, but now I've read the book I enjoyed it more due to being scared haha

Wasn't sure if you were up to that so I didn't go and say that she's in 2 of the books or it would have kind of ruined the first one. She comes back in Mortal Prey.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Cool, I'll go look for that one. I've been reading them in random orders so it doesn't matter.

Re: The "Book" thread.

Yeh I've got Phantom Prey almost finished that, which has been really good.

I think the library at my school has Certain Prey so if you recommend it i'll go hire it out.
