What good books have you read recently? And go ahead and recomend some to other users based on what they read!




Amazing in depth story of his life and the band. Its good at making him look like an asshole, then making him look like a God.



Amazing book. All Cussler's books are amazing. But this one was great.

I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

Fatherland by Robert Harris, amazing book. Currently reading Rommel's autobiography. It was written in the 50's by a British Brigadier, so says things like "Our troops" and the the "cowardly Italians"

I'm reading One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest at the moment (on my phone every night to help me get to sleep - that doesn't mean it's bad ).

It's actually a really good book, although I saw the end of the movie a while back so I think the book ending may actually lose some of its magic.

Now HP Lovecraft, there's a good read! Too bad the Cthulu mythos weren't as big as I thought. He had some good stories though.

We had to read Grapes of Wrath for school. Everyone hated that book, but I enjoyed it. He has an amazing style of writing. And I just loved how he brought all the characters and their stories to life. Made it seem like it was completely true.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

^im reading grapes of wrath right now. i really like it. i read east of eden a few months ago, and its one of my favorite books. hes an amazing writer. east of eden was one of the best books ive ever read, if not the best.

yea, the cthulhu parts were kinda slim, but i liked a bunch of the other stories. my favorite was The Color out of Space. you can definitely see how the genre of horror was changing.

I just finished Born To Run by Christopher McDougall, and it was really interesting and possibly life changing for me. It really helps put things in perspective and help us to get back to our roots as humans. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone if they haven't read it.

Great book.

Anyways, my recent reading list is as follows:

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins. Great read
House and Philosophy by William Irwin and Henry Jacob. I love the show and I love philosophy, it just fits.
Angela's Ashes. I have to read it for my AP English class, but it's actually pretty good.
He's a freak of nature, but we love him so.

My fav is the Shadow over Innsmouth and Rats in the Walls. He had a cool way of using outdated words in which I had to look them up online.

Currently reading 'Lord of the Silver Bow' - David Gemmell.

I'm rather enjoying it.

yea, i liked shadow over innsmouth. it was cool how it went back to the story, so you already knew what the narrator was up against. some of the words are annoying, but hes not as bad as poe.

lately i've read count of monte cristo... EXCELLENT book...., slaughter house 5 which as everyone seems to think is a really great read.... bit weird but still good... and i just finished diary by chuck palahniuk. i personally really liked this one...
and i've just started catch 22

also i would recommend the bell jar and to kill a mocking bird
#29
I liked On The Road.
I forget how to spell the guy's last name. Jack K. (I really hope it's Jack, too...)

And I actually enjoyed the Scarlet Letter. No one else does...

Yea, in the end he got killed because he knew too much. It was awesome(Well, sad for the guy). I mean, human beings who are sensitive in their sleep dreaming of Cthulu? Crazy. I enjoy Poe, though I only know just the token two(well, I probably read more, but these two are all I remember) The Raven, and The Fall of the House Of Usher. I used to be a real Poe head. Maybe I'll brush up some of his stories again. You know what? I will.

Just finished this one



It's pretty much 200 pages of him complaining about America, but it is actually funny and witty at the same time

I suggest that everybody read any book by George Orwell or John Steinbeck if they haven't already. 1984 and Animal Farm are good ones for Orwell and utilize symbolism very well. For Steinbeck you can't go wrong with the classics like Of Mice and Men and The Grapes of Wraith. Also anyone who hasn't read Lord of The Flies needs to read that as well. Oh and anything that Edgar Allen Poe has written, especially The Pit and the Pendulum.

ive got a big leather bound book of all of poe's poetry and stories. its pretty nice to flip through and read a story now and again. i think The Conqueror Worm is my favorite of his poems. and i always liked The Black Cat as a story. its pretty creepy.

Catcher is horrible overrated. Salinger's short stories, though, are phenomenal. Nine Stories is a must-read for everyone ever.

Myself, I haven't had much chance to read lately, but when I do have time I usually read Eeeee Eee Eeee by Tao Lin repeatedly. Best book ever.
