    Read my post, I wasn't saying he was bad. I was saying he was a polar opposite of Jane Eyre.

    oh... anyway, never heard of Eyre... good thing I guess.
    and I was saying that because sometimes I like one book by some writer but don't feel like reading more by the same person.

    The movie kicks the living crap out of it.

    Just finished:

    Jihad vs. McWorld by Benjamin R. Barber
    Boring as hell, and extremely enlightening.

    Stuck in the middle of:

    The Truth (with jokes) by Al Franken
    Slightly less humorous than his last book, but still enormously entertaining. I loved the "acid tab on the corner of this page" gag.
    The Maltese Falcon by Dashiell Hammett
    Holy crap, this guy rules! I loved the movie, and it seems like this one follows it pretty closely, even though I'm only past chapter 1.
    The Time Machine by H.G. Wells
    No comment yet. I loved the other Wells books I've read so far.
    Native Son by Richard Wright
    No comment yet.
    Prey by Michael Crichton
    I really need to stop letting my wife recommend books to me.

    To Kill A Mocking-bird for school.

    Read the first page about 4 weeks ago and threw it on my desk :P Havn't touched it since. Apparently it's supposed to get good after like 60 pages but I dont think I can be bothered.
    Gonna break it
    And never stop running (yeah)

    ^ You should really try finishing it, one of the very few books I have enjoyed in high school.

    I'm currently reading A Clockwork Orange. Very interesting so far, although it was hard to get used to the language at first. But now I can easily distinguish the meaning of the words.

    I also still need to finish Interview with the Vampire, and The Da Vinci Code. I've neglected my reading since the beginning of high school, I need to catch up with all the books I've missed out on. I want to re-read Memoirs of a Geisha too, with the movie out and all. I still haven't gotten a chance to see it! It's good from what I've heard.

    A Clockwork Orange was a pretty good book, one of few assigned books that I've read that I've actually enjoyed, but that was back in 8th grade.

    One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest
    by Ken Kesey is by far in my top 5 favorite books though I love it!

    Sick of politicians, And politics
    And prisons, Lyin' and runnin' my life.
    You pathetic preachers and hypocritic leaders,
    Smilin' and wastin' my time.

    Sick of your religions and full of shit opinions,
    Tired of waiting to die.
    Run me in, I'll do it all again,
    Motherfucker I'm still alive...

    Just, whatever you do, don't read any of his recent work. To call it dissapointing doesn't begin to cover how much it sucks.

    The Illustrated Man and Something Wicked This Way Comes are must-reads, though.

    I read Caligula in one sit yesterday. I haven't touched it for years. Oh I love this book (play actually), and the author in particular. I wanted to translate couple of the scenes for the BBS but I lended it away to sister for the week.

    Otherwise i'm still half-way in Elegant Universe. Science stuff is much more fascinating to me than before, but it still makes a slow read.
