I picked up "Matchstick Men" at the library today. Figure I'd better check it out before I go see it at the theater this summer.

Douglas Adams' The Long Dark Tea-time of the Soul

It's the only (translated) book by Adams that I haven't yet read...so I decided to do so. Love the guy.

Just started Persuader by Lee Childs, the sixth of the Jack Reacher novels (which kick ass BTW). I also picked up Michael Connelly's new one Lost Light (the latest in the Harry Bosch series, which also kick ass ), and The Jester by James Patterson.

The best bit is I got them in a 3 for 2 offer at WH Smiths for th princely sum of 27 ($41) for three hardbacks! Sweet.......

Ludlum

Right now, I'm reading THE PROMETHEUS DECEPTION by Robert Ludlum. It's the first non-Bourne Ludlum book I've read and it's just as good as the Bourne books. It's very exciting and, unlike Tom Clancy, Ludlum knows how to work his research into the plot without dragging it down. Tom Clancy is a writer for the sort of person who finds technical details as exciting as action, but Ludlum is a writer for people who like fast moving, violent, exciting thrillers.

I'm about to dig into Cabal by Clive Barker. Has anyone else read this one yet? It's one of the only Barker book I haven't read yet. Just curious if it's any good. Although I'm sure it is, I've liked all of his work so far.

I liked "Cabal" quite a bit, although I was, strangely, very dissapointed by the movie - "Nightbreed" - which was written and directed by Barker himself. The movie follows the book pretty closely, but it doesn't have the book's feel. Don't know how that happened.

Thanks "night watchman", I've actually seen Nightbreed, I didn't realize that it followed along the same basic storyline of Cabal. I was somewhat disappointed with Nightbreed myself. Hopefully Cabal is better like you said.

I read CABAL when I was about 13 and it was one of my favourite books at the time. It has a great sense of adventure and fantasy (not in a 'swords and sworcery' kind of way, but in a 'dreams and nightmares' kind of way), it's extremely gory and very erotic. You're definitely going to enjoy it.

Dreamcatcher - I just finished it this morning and I must say how little of the final third of the book they actually kept in the movie. Way different. I'd say this is my second favorite King book behind IT. No, wait...waaaaay behind IT. Nothing beats IT. Nothing.

So for all you DC movie haters who like Stephen King, I'd still recommend the book.

Its a book with 3 of Michael Crichton's books in it. Sphere, Congo, and Eaters of The Dead. Sphere is the best though.

I prefer Eaters of the Dead.

I'm reading right now Meteor by John Wydham, in English. It includes four short stories (Meteor, Dumb Martian, Body and Soul, and Survival). First two are good.

I just started THE MATARESE CIRCLE by Robert Ludlum. THE PROMETHEUS DECEPTION was so good that I had to start another Ludlum book as soon as I finished it! But I'm doing a lot of writing myself at the moment so my reading has slowed to a crawl.

Meeting Evil by Thomas Berger

It was blind buy at a 75% off book store. It's pretty good so far, very engrossing.

As soon as my copy of The Screwtape Letters gets here I'll be reading that for the book club though.

Dreamcatcher - my mum picked it up for me (i actually asked her for Misery or IT but she said they didn't have them - more like she just saw this, that it was Stephen King & presumed i'd want to read it cos the movie's out!) It's ok though, she means well. I actually have never read a Stephen King novel before (at least not that i'm aware of), i think the closest i came to these sort of books was the Goosebumps series when i was about 8! J/K. Don't yell at me though, i'm gonna try and read this but i dunno if it's a good one to start with, seeing as its more recent. So far it seems like a bit of a "guy" book what with all the hunting and all (yeh i just finished reading Catcher In The Rye so excuse me if i sound a little Holden-ish). I usually like "guy-ish" movies, so maybe i'll like this, you never know. I haven't seen the movie yet and don't plan to till i've finished the book, in which case it'll prolly be at the video store (i'm a slow reader). OK i just realised how long-winded this reply is, sorry about that! Also thinking about reading American Psycho again cos i read The Rules Of Attraction (brilliant) a little while ago and it got me craving Patrick! Then I'm gonna try Naomi's Room!!! So i've got a lot to do!

Limpieza de Sangre by Arturo Perez-Reverte (author of The Ninth Gate's novel, if you don't know him). Second part of the adventures of Captain Alatriste in XVI century, when the empire of Spain was still the most powerful on Earth. Very good, very, very good!
