    Finished Laughable Loves by Milan Kundera. Unfortunately, the other stories besides 'The Hitchhiker's Game' didn't quite live up to expectations, but they were still enjoyable enough.

    Now reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood and so far I really like it.

    The Sweet Poison Cook by Arto Paasilinna, my favourite Finnish author (read: the only Finnish author I've read). Not as good as The Year of the Hare, but still really funny. I love the Finnish colloquial spirit all through the book.

    The Cyberiad by Stanlislav Lem. It's a sci-fi/comedy collection of short stories revolving around 2 essentially god-like constructors who mostly travel the galaxy building machines/robots for people. A lot of them have kind of a fairy-tale feel to them. While this isn't true of the entire book, there are parts here and there that could almost be mistaken for Douglas Adams (The Third Sally: or the Dragons of Probability being the one that really beat me over the head with it and even includes a "probability amplifier" which has pretty much the same logic as the infinite improbability drive in Hitchhiker's Guide), which leads me to believe he probably was a fan, since this came out earlier.

    I read Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami recently. What a crazy book! It was like being in a dream for the few days I was reading it! I really liked it.

    I then went on to read The Horse Whisperer by Nicholas Evans. Was pleasantly surprised, as I had heard not so great things about it. But I liked it quite a bit.

    And I am now reading Post Office by Charles Bukowski

    Bukowski's Post Office was okay, much preferred Ham on Rye, but still, parted we're funny. Maybe I needed to be in a particular mood for it.

    Then re-read The Hobbit, and was actually quite surprised at how much I remembered from when I first read it about ten years ago. Still a great book.

    And now I've started in David Mithchell's Cloud Atlas, in anticipation of the film.
