    Summer reading...

    Discussion started by fr8lover - Jun 23, 2004

    What are you guys reading lately? Emphasis on fiction, but nf stuff is okay too.

    I'm reading The Last of the Savages by Jay McInerney right now, and it's a little slower of a read than Bright Lights, Big City or Ransom, but enjoyable.

    I got done with Douglas Coupland's Miss Wyoming, and it was one of the better books I've read in a long time. Humor, mystery and pop culture all wrapped into a good two day read.

    The only other summer reading I've done so far is The Rum Diary by Hunter S. Thompson and Generation X, also by Douglas Coupland.

    I've kinda got into a rut of only reading these (for the most part) contemporary authors like McInerney, Coupland, Bret Easton Ellis ETC...I get so burnt out on course reading during the school year its nice to get some newer stuff read.

    The only books that I read are the Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. They're written for kids, but they are darn good.

    The books are in production to be a five part movie series. Huge budget, filming in the same area Lord of the Rings was filmed. Written for kids, but C.S. intended for them to reach everyone. One of the greatest Christian intellectual powerhouses of recent time.

    The series they used to show on TV quite a few years ago was pretty darn good. One of my favourite series ever, Chronicles of Narnia is. The only one I never finished reading was the Voyage of the Dawntreader, or whatever. Where Prince Caspian goes out to sea. I’m smart, I read the books, starting with the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, which was book six or nine.

    Come to think of it, Pinup, I stub my toes quite often.
