I'm eating Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton as work for my thesis. It's kind of cool how it's written like real life accounts. I wish I hadn't seen the film first though.
Eat, Pray, Love
A friend gave it to me yesterday & said I absolutely gotta read it ... well, I'm not that sure :p
Black Hawk Down by Mark Bowden.
Currently reading Grendel by John Gardner. So far its pretty good.
I'm reading "Lust for life", by Irving Stone.
A biographical novel about Vincent Van Gogh. I highly recommend it.
Live from Golgotha - The Bible According to Gore Vidal.
So far this is fascinating, but occasionally feels almost too clever for its own good. Still really interesting. It's weird for me with Gore Vidal. I thought Julian was amazing, but couldn't get into Lincoln. This, however, is a breeze to read.
anticipating a good ending .. i agree with you ...men
