Black & Blue

Yet another Rebus book to add to my collection. I can't help it. Especially as I see Stott in my mind's eye. John Hannah was never Rebus to me.

I re-read World War Z. I'd only read the advanced copy and wanted to make sure nothing was missed. It's a great book; full of zombies and regular folks who got put through the wringer in order to survive. You don't have to be a horror genre fan to really like it, either.

Finished The Well Of Lost Plots the other day and Fforde gets better and better. I may have to re-read the Big Over Easy now as the way it links in with WOLP is ingenious and adds a whole new layer to the NurseryCrimes series.

Just started Jane Eyre so that I will finally work out what The Eyre Affair is on about half the time.

Just finished To Kill A Mockingbird again (I've already read it before, but we had to make notes about it for English Literature). I'm actually pretty glad our teacher chose for us to do this book (the other two choices were Catcher in the Rye and Lord of the Flies, neither of which I thought were any good) - I really like it.

Since I haven't got yet any Camus, I'm going with the latest Bret Easton Ellis, 'coz it's rotting in my shelf for about a year or what and I haven't read it yet. Of course the thing is very promising but I wonder how much Ellis can make "himself" into something different than his usual narrators. Anyway. Bret Easton Ellis is one of my gods.

Of course I am. I forgot to name it yeah. I read twenty pages or so and it's good. Every Ellis books except for Less Than Zero and The Informers took me some while before I really could dig it. But after that I loved them all. I know, he's always writing about the same boring drugs, sex and coldhearted people themes, but he does it with a so different stile in all of his books, it really keeps me interested. Even if every twist he pulls is forced, it just fits into the crazed world he's creating in his work.

Well, I don't think you'll be disappointed by Lunar Park then. American Psycho is pretty much a character in it. I was a little turned off by the ostensibly autobiographical aspects of the story, but I liked it overall.

Well, it's the premise of the novel, right? How eversything he archieved in life (especially AmPsy) is haunting him. And I always love it when an author merges his real life with his fiction to see, how far the people will follow him.

Al Franken's ;The Truth With jokes'.

It is a good read but makes me so angry at what the right wing nut jobs in charge of the world are up to, I haveto stop reading it occasionally to calm down.

I'm probably the last person in the country to do so, but I've literally just finished reading The Time Traveller's Wife. I thought it was beautiful and skilfully written. I haven't read characters as touchingly and truthfully written as Henry, Clare and Gomez for a long time, probably not since Donna Tartt's The Secret History. I'm slightly embarrassed by how much I cried at the end, though.
