Just this morning I finished reading Jack Ketchum's The Lost. I haven't decided what I think about it though. It was good and very interesting, but the ending left a bad taste in my mouth...

Preacher: Alamo. 2nd or 3rd best of the series, I'm not sure, but it was a fucking good ending for my favorite comic book series

Bridget Jones's Diary. Certainly a chick book, but you'll never believe how amazing it is. Don't remember myself having THAT many laughs reading something. Highly recommended.

Ancestral Vices- Tom Sharpe

one of the funniest books i have ever read. woke my mother up laughing (she works nights and wasnt half as amused as me )





Mad Maggot- Bridget Jones' Diary is not just a chick book. i've read it myself and found it to be pretty enjoyable, as was the sequel. and i am not a chick....(checks) nope, 100% not-female

Spider (Patrick McGrath) - 9/10

Probably the best portrait of squizofreny from the inside of the mind of one ever done. Disturbing and not easy to read, but incredibly accurate in putting us inside the hell this people usually live. I'm dying to see the movie.

I read 30 pages of Mrs.Dalloway. I just couldn't get into it and I put it down. Either the book isn't really that phenomenal or I have become one of those idiots who no longer have the attention span to read books. I am hoping it's the first one.

Last night, I finished Batman: The Dark Knight Strikes Again (DK2) vol 1. The Dark Knight Returns was such an awesome comic, and I got the reprinted collection so I read it all in one night. I had forgotten Frank Miller was doing a sequel, and when I went by Hastings this weekend, I saw all three volumes there. I wanted them all, but didn't have enough money. But it was cool to see Superman getting his rear handed to him by Atom, Flash, Green Arrow and of course, Bats.

Superman: "Bruce... I just want to talk.."
Batman beats the hell out of Superman.
Batman: "I'm done talking. Get out of my cave."

Yesterday, I finished Dennis Miller's "I Rant, Therefore I Am." Listen to this nice little passage:

"But I fear we might find out the problems with Viagra somewhere down the line. How did the entire medical establishment forget that a man cannot pee with an erection? You give an eighty-year-old guy an eight-hour chubby, he's going to make the Hindenburg explosion look like one of Jiminy Cricket's farts."

Bought The Watchmen TPB and Marshal Law: Blood Sweat and Fears TPB the other day and finished them both that night. I can't say anything about Watchmen that hasn't been said before, but Marshal Law:BSF was just as excellent as the previous stories in the series and even funnier. Oh, and also read the new issue of Dark Days.

Darkness, Tell Us by Richard Laymon.

Decent book with the Laymon usuals: graphic sex and violence. Not his best novel, but not his worst either.

I'd rate it a 6/10...

Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix

It only took me frikkin' three months to read, and I finished it this weekend just so I could re-read Wizard and Glass and get onto The Wolves of Calla.

If I have to read 'mortified' or 'indredulously' - or even ONE MORE FUCKING ADVERB AGAIN - I'm going to shit my pants.

OK, now I'll head onto Wizard and Glass (for a third time).

Just finished The Policy by Bentley Little.

Nothing too spectacular. It's a quick read, but the plot is very repetitive.

I've read quite a few books these past few weeks:

Holes by Louis Sachar

Chobits Number 8 (manga) by Clamp

Battle Royale by Koushun Takami (it took me quite a while)

and now I'm re-reading Bridget Jones' Diary as a bit of light relief.

The other day, I finished up "Zombies of the Gene Pool" by Sharyn McCrumb and "It Had to Be Us" by Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence. Both solid reads.

I am still obsessed with reading Calvin & Hobbes comics. Even though I've read them a thousand times, they never cease to amuse and engage me.

Finished reading Outside Providence by Peter Farrely last night. Touching, funny, and extremely well written. Better than anything he has ever put on film, thats for sure.

Indeed. C-man and Hobbes are amazing characters. I own every book but two, and have read each numerous times. I wish I could have an imagination like Calvin.
