Not much of a reader, but I thought I'd kick in my two cents-
Past few months I've read
All of the Song of Fire and Ice Series (George R.R. Martin... if you ever thought you might like fantasy, pick this up. The only way I can describe it is a mix between King Arthur and Tarantino.)
Just finished Jarhead a few nights ago. Very interesting, not at all like the movie. Swaffard writes much in the style of Chuck Palahniuk. Nice little stories about the Gulf War (part 1).
Started reading on the Icewind Dale trilogy (solid so far, though not on par with martin).
I would reccomend Fight Club by Chuck Palaniuk to just about anyone.
Read the book. The movie was done fairly well, just a few gems I wouldn't deny anyone of. If nothing else, you'll think a little bit.
I'd also just like to point out how much the da vinci code sucked. Not that it's not an interesting premise, trust me, it is. Great throught. Horrible book. It's written at probably a 5th grade level, and almost too much like a movie script. Example would be like-
"They opened the door and were amazed by what they saw!"
And then it just tells you on the next page. Cheap little cliffhangers.
Just finished "Why Do Men Have Nipples" written by 2 doctors, explains away all those questions you always wanted to ask but never had enough alcohol to brave the embarassment. Quite interesting, and not too long.
Weird, I bought my girlfriend that same book for Christmas. She's obsessed with it.
I've been trying to find time to read Neil Gaiman's new book Anasi Boys, but I've been getting sidetracked with grad school applications and my friend's first draft of his own novel. I'll make it eventually.
