what book are you reading at the moment

Recommended Posts

I have started reading all the star wars books, can't f***ing help it, embarrassing.Only about another 70 to go.

 

Get straight on the Timothy Zahn ones.

 

I recommend the trilogy;

 

'Heir to the Empire', 'Dark Force Rising' and 'The Last Command'.

Orlando Figes - A People's Traged: The Russian Revolution 1917-1924

 

Great book, strange man.

 

Blood Meridian is excellent. Pretty vile story, but excellent.

 

Agreed. The Judge is an incredible character.

rather enjoyed this something a bit different than i normally read

 

 

haha is right, f*** off Roy!

 

I haven't read anything since Invisible by Paul Auster the other month.

Much like smithdown's mate in the cast thread, I've pretty much decided that Auster will do for me.

Other authors are sound and everything, but he's doing pretty much everything I need, so I'll just stick to Auster.

Currently reading through 'Shampoo Planet' by Douglas Coupland. Read most of his stuff and I still can't decide whether I like him or hate him.

 

Half-way through 'The Ball Is Round' by David Goldblatt, which is a very interesting read but I've fallen off the wagon with of late. Same can be said of 'Coming From Behind' by Howard Jacobson.

 

Going to be ordering 'Good As Gold' by Joseph Heller later, think it's about time I read it seeing as my favourite book is 'Something Happened'.

 

In regards to Kate Atkinson, there's a copy of 'Case Histories' floating around at work, should I read it?

You might as well, you've given up on every other book

Just started (and finished because it's only 100 pages long) reading The Old Man and the Sea - Ernest Hemingway. Brilliant from start to finish. First Hemingway i've read, but it definately won't be the last.

 

Now onto A Clockwork Orange - Anthony Burgess. I love the film (although how much of that is Kubrick's doing im unsure), so hopefully the book will take my fancy too. I've only read a chapter and it's already quite wierd. The language in it is something else, it would be impossible to read for someone who didn't have English as their first language. Half the words aren't even real, you have to basically discover their meaning from the context. Reading it should be a fun experience.

Jo Nesbo's The Snowman. Quite enjoying it at the moment, though the time shifting is a little confusing sometimes.
