I picked it up basically because of a quote on the "Choke" cover by Bret Easton Ellis ("Maybe our generation has found its Don Delillo")

I suppose there are some similarities. The only thing I don't really like about it is that some of the characters are really uninteresting, and ruin all the momentum. I guess it'd be OK if I was taking time to read it at decent lengths, but as I'm reading in short spells (on buses (bloody students) and lunch breaks) I'm not getting very far; and all the switching between different characters and decades - well, it can be a pain in the ass.

I'm going to finish it next week, reading at home. So hopefully it'll be a bit more enjoyable. I'll post a proper, although probably still crappy, analysis of it when I've finished it; and learned to stop rambling on so much.

I finished Lullaby by Chuck Palahniuk, it was good and I recommend it to fans of his.
Today when I returned it to the library, I picked up Choke. It's been awhile since I read it.

The New Sufferings of Young W, by Ulrich Plenzdorf

Of all the books I had to read for my degree in college, this one is by far my favorite and always a joy to reread. A hilarious parody of Goethe's The Sufferings of Young Werther.

I read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone again over the period of Saturday Night and Sunday morning (last time I read it was about 2 years ago). Than last night and tonight I was re-reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (again, last time I read it was 2 years ago). I ended after chapter 14 tonight, so when I start again tomorrow I'll be on chapter 15..."Aragog".

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Bugress.

Should take me a while to read since I read it during my 5th period Graphic Arts Tech class instead of doing all of my work. The NADSAT language is a bit annoying, but I love the movie so I'm giving the book a shot. After this, I plan to read The Godfather. I am basically only into "movie-books".

Just finished "The Godfather" by Mario Puzo. There were too many subplots and rather unnecessarily bloated secondary characters. Francis Ford Coppola did a great job adapting it, as it's brilliant in places and overall effective, but has its rather uninteresting gaps.

just PERFECT for this forum: "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay" by Michael Chabon.

it's about two buddies who create a comic strip about a Nazi-busting superhero in 1939. Little by little, their own lives and that of the coomic character intermingle... GREAT stuff!

I read that for my contemporary literature class last spring. I thought it was pretty good, but lost some steam in the latter part of it. They're supposedly making a movie of this.
