I'm a little over halfway done with The Road and it's absolutely fantastic so far. I actually bought it months ago but never actually got around to reading it.

I'm currently reading Wizards First Rule. I watch Legend of the Seeker, but I never stick around for the credits. I did one day and what do you know, it's based on a book and I like it more than the show.

That's where my name comes from. It's a very fun novel. I had a blast reading it. It was more adventurous than Dick's other works. The guy was pretty out there with his concepts even in 1957.

I've always wondered where you got your name -- I randomly picked out the book because the title stood out. Never read anything by Dick 'cept for one or two short stories.

Cool. It should be a quick read. I read it over an airplane flight I took when I was visiting my cousin.

I just read Wild at Heart by Barry Gifford again. It's really different from the film. The book is more of a road novel that's about Sailor and Lula trying to get to California, except it's also about the art of storytelling. Many of the chapters are about Sailor or Lula or another character talking about a past occurrence or a memory or a story they heard about. I liked the book. It was my second time reading it. I read the first time about four years ago. The dialogue is very impressive. It just rolls off the tongue of the characters and it feels very personal and realistic. The way he writes Lula's manner of speaking is great because it sounds like she's asking a question but she's making a statement. It's a fun book to read.

I actually had to restart the Dead Zone because last semester started getting a little intense and I had to quit reading it for awhile.

Wow! This is one of the few Philip K. Dick works I've yet to touch. Dick is an absolutely genius. So much so that I end up having skimming through and analyzing his novels after I read them just to make more sense of the stories. I've actually always wondered were you got your username and now I'm very interested in picking this up.

Let us know what you think LazyBoy.


As for me, I'm reading Terminal Havoc currently. It's very King Kong meets The Thing, but it's interesting thus far.

One of my problems is that I often start reading another book before I finish the current one. These I'm reading at the moment.

MY BORING-ASS LIFE by Kevin Smith
LIFE OF PI by Yann Martel
GOD DELUSION by Richard Dawkins
SOURCERY by Terry Pratchett
THE LOST SYMBOL by Dan Brown

This was recommended by one of the staff members at Joseph Beth, she said any person who's a fan of Scorsese and Tarantino movies needs to read this book.

I just started Atonement! It's been a long time coming.. I just never got around to it. Love it so far, but I loved the movie too.. I can only assume it is wayy better than the movie.
