Re: The Book thread.
Finished 'Coming up for Air' by George Orwell. Nowhere near as good as 1984 or Animal farm, although the writing is top notch through out. Its a character study mostly, and 90% of the book is him describing his childhood which is okay enough. But the book doesn't really have a plot, so i got bored after awhile. What i enjoyed most from it was that you see some ideas that will be fully exploited in 1984.
Started 'The Trial' by Kafka. 40 or so pages in and its gripping stuff so far.
