Excellent book. I haven't read it since High School but it's one of my favorite of all time, I think I'm gonna have to dig my copy out.

As for right now I'm reading Something Dangerous by Patrick Redmond.

Something Happened - Joseph Heller

Excellent, you'll have to give me the low down when your done, Catch 22 is my down right favoutrite but I read Portrait of the Artist as an Old Man and it wasn't to flash. But I'd heard good things about Something Happened.

at the moment though...

Gormenghast Trilogy
Double Indemnity
1984 (half way through it, but haven't picked it upo for weeks, not dedicated to texts)

"Lullaby" by Chuck Palahniuk. I just picked it up at the library, I was browsing through the new stuff, not really planning on getting anything and saw it. I didnt even know he had a new book coming out. Chuckie P. is my favorite author, he has previously written the gems: "Fight Club" "Invisible Monsters" "Survivor" and "Choke". If anyone wants any recommendations, I say pick up one of his books. Great reads IMO.

"William Wallace: Brave Heart" -- by James Mackay

It's a biography of William Wallace. I wanted to know more about the man (as BRAVEHEART is my fave movie) and to get to know more of the hard historical fact 'bout him, so I bought this biography, which everyone says apparently is the best one there is to date.

The Bluest Eye, by Toni Morrison

I'm about halfway through, The Bluest Eye is a rather haunting look into the lives of African Americans back in the 1940's. A very interesting and educational read.

OFF SEASON by Jack Ketchum

Oh man, it's awesome. I don't think I've ever read a more terrifying or more gripping book. The horror is quite visceral. I found out about it on this forum. If you like horror you have to check it out. About 50 pages to go...

areyoubeingserved?

Just finished Something Happened - highly recommended. As different from Catch-22 as night and day, but sad and bittersweet. It took a while to adjust to Heller's writing (I kept thinking he would puncture it with some of his patented comedy) but if you didn't know it was Heller you would slip into it easier. Anyway, a very readable, fractured tale of a man who can't quite get to grips with his middle-years (and the arrival of his handicapped child). Go read!

Right now I am re-reading "A Widow for One Year" by John Irving. Perhaps it is not his most literary classic, but it certainly got me wrapped up in it. This is the second time I have read it, and I have not ceased loving it. This man can write a page with only words and a semi-colon...makes writing worth reading.

I just got a copy of HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN today. and guess what, I finished it today too. I have not read the first two, but have seen the movie. and after reading the third book, I am probably going to read the 4th in the next 2 days. it was amazing.

Nearly finished Mandrake by Paul Eddy - follow up to his debut Flint last year. A good thriller with a female main character.

After that I've got From A Buick 8 by Stephen King and The Two Towers lined up.

I'm just past the halfway mark of Don Delillo's Underworld. I thought I'd be finished it by now, oh well.

Can't say it's really grabbed my attention so far. Gonna pick up LULLABY soon.
