    What Book Are You Reading? pt. 4

    Discussion started by Weapon X - Oct 17, 2003

    Now that summer is over, it’s likely you won’t be reading as much as a couple of months ago. So, who’s reading something other than a three week old issue of The Economist on the subway?

    I’m currently involved with Steinbeck’s first novel, “Cup Of Gold”. I just started it, but it’s pretty good, so far.

    I've been in a Richard Matheson phase. I've just finished the following of his...

    - Nightmare At 20,000 Feet
    - Hunted Past Reason
    - I Am Legend



    But I am just about to sit down and start 'DUEL.'

    A Farewell to Arms was alright. I read that in jail. It was either that, or some bullshit army book written for twelve year olds. Now that I think of it, that was a really good find, considering it was youth jail.

    the stranger is a good book, but you have to be somewhat educated on the history of philosophy to get it.

    nausea by sarte- great if you live alone... once again, you need some prior knowledge to truly appreciate it

    romeo and juliet- i hate melodrama, so this sucks.

    winning chess
    logical chess move by move
    both by irving chernov
    great if you like chess.

    I read this in less than a week even with a full time job. It was too hard to put down.

    If you want to read more Richard Matheson.. I'd suggest 'I Am Legend' for your next read. It's fucking awesome.

    I always love how everyone here reads fairly smart stuff.

    Fuck that, I'm back on cheap PAPERBACK ACTION NOVEL mode. Just finished "Area 7" by Matthew Riley, which is probably the most insanely fast paced action novel I've ever read, and just started "Ice Station" by the same author, which I hear is even more insane.

    Before that was "Prey", by Michael Crichton, which is fucking awesome and I would shit myself if they didn't make a movie for it.
