    A Prayer for Owen Meany?

    Hello all-thanks for reading: Am looking for an emotive, engrossing read. Currently reading The Great Santini and am a huge Conroy fan but half way through the week and i'm honestly not loving the story (nor do I like the lead character). Thinking about dropping it and reading Owen Meany.

    Has anyone read the "Uncut" version of Stephen King's "The Stand"?

    "new and improved"? All I keep hearing and reading is that the extra 400 pages are a load of unnecessary info that were originally taken out by the editors for a reason... I cant find the original anywhere!

    Has anyone read the "Uncut" version of Stephen King's "The Stand"?

    Ive read the original cut verison (about 20 yrs ago) and I remembered loving it. Now theres the uncut version whihc is about 400 pages longer. Is it worth reading the longer, uncut version or should I just try and get a hold on a used copy of the original?

    Can someone recommend a really engagin, intereseting non-fiction read?

    Not sure how I can be more specific if even I dont know what I am looking for! Thank you for the recommnedations. Id say I want something enthralling...a page turner that I can learn something from. I have read hundreds of books in my life and less than 10% at most, have been non-fiction...

    Can someone recommend a really engagin, intereseting non-fiction read?

    I know that's a very vague request but I think I should be relatively easy to please as I have read very few non-fiction books. I dont care what the sub-genre is. As long as you loved it, found it engaging and informative, im in! Thanks. FYI-recently read Into Thin Air which I found to...
