    I'm about to start 'One Day' by David Nicholls.

    Read The Gunslinger, the first in the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. Quite good, I look forward to the rest.

    Have now started The Wind-up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami, and so far it's great! I love Murakami

    So The Wind-up Bird Chronicles by Murakami was great. Absolutely crazy and dreamlike, but great!

    And I'm now reading Dubliners by James Joyce, which is a collection of short stories. Almost finished.

    No matter how cliche this sounds, this is actually one of the best books I have ever read.

    In this thread I have learned that Alison will read anything.

    I just finished Chimerascope by Douglas Smith. It sucked. Well, it had one or two stories that were worthy of being labelled mediocre, but overall it was just terrible.

    The last truly moving thing I read was Dostoevsky's Notes From Underground, which I found to be absolutely riveting and fascinating.

    The Alison bit was a dig - if you're going to hit Fitzgerald, ruin your senses on Tender is the Night. It is both more beautifully written and more enduring than The Great Gatsby ever will be.

    I have read some decent books in the past year. I doubt I can list them here.


    Voodoo Heart was good (Scott Snyder is much better at prose than at comics). Spaceman Blues also.

    Shit. Literature is too annoying to trendily post about. I lend too many books to remember to get back and I end up poor when I need to buy them again. Where is the reward in that?

    I will take that on board, although after being underwhelmed by The Great Gatsby, I'd say I'll take a while to get around to reading that - too many books on the waiting list at the moment!
    So many books, so little time

    And now that I've commented, I may as well add that I finished Dubliners , which had one of the most beautfiul quotes I've ever read in it. From the story "The Dead":
    "His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.”
    Sigh. Lovely.

    And I've now moved onto A Clash of Kings

    I'm re-reading SkagBoys by Irvine Welsh at the moment.
