Re: The Book thread.

I'm still on the book I posted about a while back.

After that, think I'll move to this cheap Le Carre book I picked-up. My sister bought me one of his a few years back, & I dug it, so this will be next on my list. (Thought about "Tinker Tailor", what with the movie & all, but it says it's part of a series, & I don't like books that feel like they're forcing you to the next one.)

Same sister told me she was buying the "Hunger Games" series, & I could borrow them if I wanted. Read the back of first one at a store.... Not gonna happen.

I'm about a 1/3 of the way through that book myself. It seems...directionless, if that makes sense.

After that, I'm going to start 11/22/63 by Stephen King. Anyone read that? Is it good?


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

I've posted in this thread before about my love of King. That said, will not read this master of fiction try to write anything dealing with nonfiction this way. In fact, turned-off his "Today" show interview when I found out what they were discussing.

That said, an old school friend saw a relative recently. When they learned a read a lot, suggested I try Ayn Rand. Any opinions/suggestions?

Re: The Book thread.

Meh, I don't really like Stephen King's style. Just recently read 'Firestarter', while it had some good moments, I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Too many cursing kinda ruined the whole experience for me. Also tried reading 'Dolores', but after about 15-20 pages I realised it's not meant for me.

I've just recently got a J.R.R. Tolkien book for my birthday, 'The Book of Lost Tales'. Anyone read it? I enjoy these fantasy-themed stuff, initally wanted to buy 'The children of Hurin', but that wasn't available.

Glad I'm not the only one with that problem. I bought a Joe Pernice book a few months back. (More-known as a musician.) I had no problem with a bit of cursing, as it was in dialogue, & it sounded how people talk... But when it came to be half the words in the book, I stopped.

Re: The Book thread.

Yeah, I think I've found every possible combination of curse words in 'Firestarter'. While I don't mind some cursing thrown here or there, it kinda decreased the book's artistic value. If you write a book, at least choose your words, it's not like you're talking to someone on the street.

I just finished that one. I'm a big SK fan, I have EVERYONE of his books, love this Guy. But 11/22/63 it's definitly something different coming from him...It's not that I didn't liked it, but it just didn't seem like SK for me. Have u tried "The Dark Tower"? EPIC.

Just started "A Game of Thrones", love it! I guess that in 2 days I'll have to buy the other ones, I'm finishing this one really fast

Re: The Book thread.

I finished The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest. I was dissapointed. At least in the first 2 books there was a mystery(even though I pretty much figured out the second one's right off the bat) this one only had one shocking moment and then the rest of the stuff wasn't really that interesting.
