Anyone else like me LOVE to read? Noting is better to me than putting in a chilled out CD, getting under a thick warm blanket and reading for a few hours. My weekends are generally spent sitting on my back porch reading away.

Just finished Brave New World. Thought it was pretty good but nothing as great as my friends said it was. I'm working on One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest right now.

So discuss books and such.

just finished one flew over the cuckoos nest a few nights ago.

I started a couple books last week but I haven't been too interested up to this point. I started "O The Clear Moment" when I saw it at the library. The only reason I picked it up is because the guy who did the weird letter-art in Fear and Loathing did the cover art for this book, but it's kinda disappointing so far.

But a good long book I've read a couple times is "The Moonstone". I forget who writes it, but it's a classic mystery novel...good read.

Should I be prepared for a freaky ending? I'm only like 40 pages in since I started it today.

put it this way.

the ending grows to be fairly predictable as you near it, but when you get there, it is more vivid and well written than you could imagine.


EDIT: this is also just an opinion

Also, "When You Are Engulfed In Flames"...recommend that to anyone.

And (I know how this sounds...) "False Memory" by Dean Koontz is an amazing thriller novel...reading at it's best (even though I HATE Koontz).

It's not necesarily freaky, but I thought it was quite interesting/ a little disturbing. And interestingly enough I also just finished Brave New World and then One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

But yeah I used to love to read, although I cut back a lot when I started playing guitar.

Im not much of a reader, I usually get bored, or I never get to finish the books due to lack of patience I guess.
Ive read House of Leaves a few weeks ago, though, and I fuking loved it.

Any of you guys read it too?

EDIT: Lol^ to me theres not much difference between a book and a good videogame, they both tell a story and they both help you spend some time.

I've read House of Leaves at least half a dozen times. Every time you read it, it gets better IMO. Do you have the copy with the Whalestoe Letters from Johnny's mother in the back? Those are pretty messed up.

I tried to read is other book, Only Revolutions but it is way too confusing to read right now. I'll pick it up again this summer when I'm not worried about school.

This. i saw the movie before reading the book (actually smart, becuase the book turns out to be so good that the move pales in comparison), so i knew what was coming, but i was still emotionally enthralled after reading the last few paragraphs.

Edit: and yeah, you could say i like (read:love passionately) reading.
Looks like someone woke up on the wrong side of the cake this morning!

If he went to the literature thread all his answers are surely going to be:

"Yes I like reading."

He wants to know who else likes reading, people that DON'T go to the literature thread. I sure don't.

I agree about HoL I've read it about four times and can never get enough.


I did the same thing with Only Revolutions since I just couldn't follow it in school.

Right now I'm really into Chuck Palahniuk and Hunter S. Thompsons books and I just started Gatsby for my English class.

the only bukowski book i've read is The Post Office a few years ago, and i liked it a lot. I'm not sure what else to read by him, though! Care to make a suggestion?

OR is nothing like HoL. The book is written very strange. It has two characters. You read the book right to left to read it in the view of one character. Then when you finish the book from left to right, you turn the book upside down and read it right to left to view the story from the other person's. It's not written in complete sentences.

It's more
written

at

Very confusing. Lots of insane metaphors. People have read the book dozens of times and understand maybe 40% of the book.

I love to read more than anything. There's nothing more comforting than a book. I'm reading Les Miserables right now. It's really, really good so far. Everytime I've got money to spend, I use it all on books.


TS: I loved Brave New World, and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was pretty good, too.

Edit:
I've also read House of Leaves and Only Revolutions. I liked HoL better, but they're both quite good. I've been meaning to go back and reread both of them.
