Chronic city-Jonathan Lethem +
Some Place to be Flying by Charles De Lint
Forrest Gump by Winston Groom. It was pretty decent, I definitely laughed out loud a few times. Lots of words are misspelled, so grammar nazis might not like this, but it's pretty good if you enjoy the movie ( but I must say it is drastically different than the movie in some aspects).
It's not about the bike - Lance Armstrong
Just finished an Agatha Chritie Hercule Poirot The Murder on the Links.
Just finishing a Colin Dextor, Inspector Morse thriller. The Dead of Jericho, That is another series I would heartily endorse. A real thinking detective novel.
I finished La reine dans le palais des courants d'air (aka The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest) 2 days ago. I loved it and I'm glad I took my time reading it instead of staying awake the whole weekend like I did with the other two. It's very sad to think that Stieg Larsson will never write another word...
Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
The Plot against America - Phillip Roth
First Phillip Roth novel. Loved it. Roth recomendations anyone?
Even I want to try Roth. I don't want American Pastoral to be my first Roth book, one because it is too huge and two it is very popular. I want to start off with something small. Any suggestions?
Atonement by Ian McEwan. 7 on 10.
Agent Zigzag. The true story of Eddie Chapman, crook,spy,hero. Best true spy story I have read yet.
Finished re-read of 2666 by Roberto Bolano.
That definitely clarified things.
Clearly diverse, clearly varied, clearly diffuse, and clearly enigmatic.
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
All The Pretty Horses - Cormac McCarthy
A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare.
Midnight's Children by Rushdie
Dragon Tears by Dean Koontz
So bad I couldn't even finish it.
The Wild Hunt by Elizabeth Chadwick 4/5
I just finished reading Andre Agassi's autobiography, Open
When I started reading it I was a bit worried. I had read so many good reviews that my expectations were very high. I felt like I really really wanted to like this book but what if I didn't? What if I thought it was boring? After the first few lines I knew I would like it and before I had read 10 pages I was completely hooked.
