Weapon X

What Book Are You Reading Pt....5?

Recommended Posts

Well, I know some of you Americans are enjoying football and turkey, but the holidays are coming up? I hope you have or are planning to crack that gigantic biography of Chekov soon.

 

Last week, I read Farley Mowat’s Walking The Land. I thought it was a very good expose on the Canadian government fucking around with the Inuit people. It was very depressing and disturbing, to say the least. Half the book is reading about starvation and mothers burying their children.

 

Right now I’m reading Ernest Hemingway’s Men Without Women. It is a collection of 14 short stories written, I think, earlier on in his career.

 

So, what book are you reading?

That's the one after Wizard and Glass right? I can't wait to find out how they resolve things with that guy Flagg. Flagg's been in a lot of books huh? Leseeee.....The Stand, Needful Things, Eyes of the Dragon, couple others I can't remember now...he's like King's Boogeyman.

 

But right now, I'm reading HOUSE OF LEAVES by Mark danielewski....great book, spooky as fuck

Choke is good but certainly not CHuck's best. That'd have to be Lullaby. I would say FIght CLub but that's just too cliched

I just read The Sound and the Fury...quite possibly the best book I have ever read, next to The Brothers Karamazov.

Now I'm reading Crime and Punishment... I think the translation on my copy is questionable, although I did only pay $2.40 for it.

aww yea... the Sound and the Fury... indeed, the best book I've ever read. Nice choice...

 

Starting in on Hesse's Demian (pleasure), and Fredrick Douglas' narrative (school)...

 

After that it's on to Jonathan Franzen's "The Corrections"...

Nice, I'm all about Hesse. I just recently read Steppenwolf, Siddhartha, and The Journey to the East, but I haven't read Demian yet. Steppenwolf and Siddhartha were both interesting...but after reading them The Journey to the East just let me down.

Demian is ok so far... it's small and I'm only about 20 pages in

 

I've read both Steppenwolf and Siddhartha... Steppenwolf is second only to Sound and the Fury... what an awesome book.
