Moby Dick

I keep meaning to read this. Must remember to have a look in the library next time I'm near it.

Crash by J.G. Ballard

I wish that I'd read this before seeing the film since my image of the characters and the events was completely shaped by it. Other than that, I thought that it was a genuinely disturbing look at the possibilities of technology and sexuality and their, quite literal, collision. Ballard's depiction of sex is very clinical and makes the acts seem fairly mechanical, which I suppose is the point.

Leg-fucking good.

Just bought The England's Dreaming Tapes by Jon Savage. Can't wait to dive into that hefty tome.

The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove - Christopher Moore

Thoroughly enjoyable. Can't wait for my next Moore.

Although now I'm reading one by Carlos Ruiz Jafon.

Thank you Craig!

About a hundred pages into JPod.

It's very quirky, even for a Coupland. Good so far though.

I'd been meaning to read more Coupland for quite a while.

What should be next on the list?

Born Standing Up by Steve Martin. What a miserable fucking book. Sorry you didn't enjoy yourself Steve. I fucking love stand up.

That's the one. Book and recommender. My only negative with "The Shadow of the Wind" is it's quite a big book to read in bed.

I predict that will be your only negative.

I'm about 3/4 of the way through Zafon's new one, The Angel's Game. It's released on Tuesday, but don't go in expecting it to be like The Shadow of the Wind. The Angel's Game is good so far, but it is very, very dark.

Anyway, I'm glad you're liking the suggestions. More Moore is always a good thing.

Girlfriend in a Coma and Microserfs. I know that Generation X is well regarded but other than that I'm unsure of where to go next.

Just read up on this, sounds very good. I may have to check it out at some point.
