    It is a pretty good book in fact but I didn't find it, I don't know, it just didn't has Dostoevsky's style. It's probably my least favourite work of him.

    And Gogol is excellent. Nose is still one of the best stories I've ever read.

    I'm reading a book by Boris Vian, I can't translate the title right now but I'm loving it.

    Yeah, I started it expecting one thing and I got another - hence not being able to stick with it for longr periods of time.

    I really need to find something I'll LIKE again.

    i read brave new world when i was 14ish and i really enjoyed it. can't remember it very well now, and i hate reading things i read when i was younger because i remember them as being great and then get depressed by how bad they actually are.

    i can't find a book now that i can stick with, but i really want something to read. ideally, i'd like a new chuck palahniuk book.

    The shadow of the wind. A friend of mine told me it was a great book and I had never heard about it. Now I'm reading it, a lot of people that see it tell me that they had already read it... =S

    It's a great book, I'm enjoying it a lot. I recommend it. Anybody heard about it?
