The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

So far it is not nearly as morbid as one would expect, it's witty and believeable. Now, I know that it will get worse as the story goes on, but I agree with the foreward, it is very humorous at first.

oo~! The Bell Jar is such a fantastic read. I think I blew a seam laughing...! Unfourtunately, its a VERY misunderstood one. Most people tend to make assumptions on what Plath was trying to say by taking into account what happened to her in the last leg of her life.

Interesting Trivia! Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon (of Sonic Youth) bought a house in upstate New York where Sylvia plath would retreat when she was having problems with her husband, Ted Hughes.

the spice... the spice....

I'm currently reading CHILDREN OF DUNE, the third book in the DUNE CHRONICLES by FRANK HERBERT.

I have to admit that up to now, it's the one I got engaged into the least. I have about 25 pages left to read and I can't say as it gripped me as much the previous two installments, DUNE and DUNE MESSIAH.

I just got off a marathon LORD OF THE RINGS READ in which I read the entire thing in under a month. Fantastic book, I had never read it.

Recently completed:

Servant of the Bones: (Fiction-supernatural). 7/10

A Simple Plan: (Fiction-Drama) 9/10 (Movie was good, book blew me away)

Slander: (Non-Fiction-political) Tired of having the Media spoon feed you your politics as TRUTH? Read this.... like being hypnotized by Katie Couric and Dan Rather.... stay away. 9/10

Bias: A CBS insider tells all (Non Fiction-political) Again, an insiders account of how the media Is biased and radically left.... told by a Liberal which makes it even more compelling. 8/10

The New Thought Police: (Non fiction-everything) again, if you want the truth, and feel you're not getting it.... this one is also an insiders account of exactly what the title says.... again, one would think this is coming from a right winger... but guess again... this intriguing book is written by a lesbian feminist liberal who is sick and tired of her "sides" willingness to subvert truth in order to get their point across. You may or may not agree with her opinions, but her willingness to debate without using LIES will impress the most right winger out there. 8/10

The Final Hour: (Non Fiction-religious) chronicals supernatural events occuring around the world regarding the need for makind to have a return toward christianity. If you like stuff about miraculous events such as Medjugore, Lourdes, Fatima, etc, you'll like this account of recent supernatural activity. If you're agnostic, you may be interested as well... atheist... but deep down still questioning.. check it out... total anti-christian, anti-faith etc... then hey, more bashing material for ya. 8/10

I read a lot.... not as much as I watch movies... but it's up there.

Right now I'm reading "The Joy Luck Club" for school. It's well written, I guess, but I hate books where people suffer, so it's kind of a compromise. Also, all the male characters (so far) are underwritten, so there's really no one for me to identify with.

WTF??? You HAVE TO read Lord of the Rings for your English class? Wow, I had to read 'crap' like Lord of the Flies and MacBeth when I was in school... you know... I'm just a little bit jealous. You must have a really cool English teacher

I have just finished THE BEACH. I have got to say, ive not seen the film and i know im gonna be disapointed if i do cause the book was so bloody good.

Ive got Martina Cole "THE RUNAWAY" to start now, which im looking forward to.

I also hear Jackie Collins has just published a new book. I just have to read all her trashy, bitchy, sexy gossip. It is absolute bliss to lie on a beach in the sun with Jackie Collins to entertain you.
Im off to book my holls when i get the book.

I'm going to have to pick that up soon. Cronenberg is easily one of my top three or four favorite directors. What films does the book cover?

There are two editions: the old one covers everything up to 1993 (Naked Lunch/M. Butterfly), the new edition also includes stuff about Crash and the whole controversy surrounding the film. Of course I recommend the new edition...

It's been an excellent, thoroughly enjoyable read so far.

Really? Wow, I've never seen that in an Irvine Welsh book before. In fact, the only book I've ever seen a glossary in was Frank Herbert's Dune.......What a weird read that was!
