I didn’t see a post anywhere on the first page for this or when I searched, so I figured I would start a thread of my own!

What book are you currently reading? Or what was the most recent book that you have read? I myself have just started reading a book called Drylor The First Artifact. It is an Action/Fantasy book created by Ryan Tomasella. So far it is actually damn good, it is a story about a man that suffers amnesia and struggles to regain his memory. As his memory starts to come back to him he realizes that his brother is an evil S.o.b and he makes it his mission to stop him.

It seems like a fairly generic story line but the author makes it his own. There are tons of twists and turns in the story (mainly when the main character thinks he remembers something from his past he realizes that it was only an illusion that his brother wanted him to think was true.) I must say I am really impressed with this book, then again I read almost anything that involved sword and sorcery. Below is the cover of the book and what the back of the book reads.

(Invalid img)

When a man wakes up inside a cage that is being carried through
an underground city, he has no idea where he is or what has
happened to him. As Von, a victim of amnesia, is taken to a jail
cell to await his fate amongst elves, humans, dwarfs, gnomes, and
halflings, he is told he is a member of the Royal Guard of Genisus.
It is not long before he is transported to the palace where he
meets an impatient king who eventually returns him to his jail
cell while deciding his destiny.

As Von’s memory slowly returns, he discovers that he is the only
one who can protect Drylor—a world that abandoned him—
from its greatest evil, his own brother. Through his journey to the
truth, Von meets an unlikely group of friends who are willing
to sacrifice everything to help him stop his brother Scarlet
from annihilating the only world they have ever known.

As Von’s past becomes clear and reveals his future, he soon
realizes the only way he can end his brother’s heartless
massacres is to find him and kill him.

The book is for sale through all major online retailers, so you can buy a copy from Amazon, Barnes and Nobles or any other book retailers. If you're too lazy to look it up then here is a link to the barnes and nobles website where you can place an order:

Last book I read was Fahrenheit 451.
I'm torn between starting "The Journey Home" by Dermot Bolger, The Dark Tower series by Stephen King or Les Miserables by Victor Hugo next.

I did Fahrenheit in my "distopian future" phase, along with Brave New World and Nineteen Eighty-Four - they're all amazing.

At the moment I'm reading The Fourth Hand by John Irving, which is about TV news, hand transplants and American football.
Hahahahahahahahahah hahahaha har har har

I'm currently reading the Orwell reader. After I'm done I plan to start on either Kant's moral and political philosophy, Ivanhoe, or the Arrow of gold.

Currently reading One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I originally didn't expect much from it but I am finding it to be a very good read.

About a world where black people are superior to white people. Told through the eyes of two young lovers who are white/black - which is totally against laws of society. It's both amazing, and depressing. Really makes you think about how lucky we were with the abolition of predudice against blacks (for the most part). Really well written, albeit for mid teens.

Very good book

I watched the film right after reading, and I wasn't impressed at all. I'd heard so much about how brilliant the film is, but I didn't really like it in comparison to the book. It seemed too light-hearted.

Nothing at the minute bogged down in writing about Paradise Lost and The Jew of Malta for uni. Need to get off the 'net and read for pleasure, much more rewarding. Next on my list is either The Innocent by Ian McEwan, or The Brothers Karamazov by Dostoevsky.
