Finished Red Dragon last night. It was good. I look forward to Silence of the Lambs, which I'll probably get for Christmas.

I'll also ask for Cat's Cradle by Vonnegut and Stephen King's autobiography.

What is everyone's favorite Stephen King book? I've read The Shining and It, and I'm not sure which I'd like to read when I next get the chance.

I just finished Wee Free Men by Pratchet (I've read it before, but it's been a while).

Their swords glow blue in the presence of lawyers.

My siblings love prachet. Never like him much though.

Just read God is not great - How Religion poisons everything, The coming generational storm, and a bunch of boring technical books. Next on my list is The Rage Against God - How athiesm led me to faith.

Finished A Clockwork Orange (by Anthony Burgess) a while ago, and enjoyed it a lot. It's nice to read a dystopian novel focusing on the characters for a change.

And now for something completely different, I read How to See Yourself As You Really Are by Tenzin Gyatso. Let's see how this goes.

Tripsis, I'm reading Harry Potter for the first time right now. I'm currently on the third one. I'm trying to read through them before the eighth movie comes out.

And to anyone who cares, I haven't watched the movies either. I decided my plan of attack is Movie, Book, Movie, Book, because that way I wouldn't be disappointed by the movies and appreciate the books still because it fills all the cracks the movies left out. It's been working for me so far, if only I could have more time to read...

Hard to believe that you haven't read them or seen the movies :lol: But movie first and book second is a good way to go about it. That's what I always recommend for any book that has been turned into a movie if you want to enjoy them both.

I've only read The Dark Tower series by King. It was good overall, but it definitely had its low points. 1st book good, 2nd great, 3rd meh, 4th backstory, 5th pretty boring, 6th meh, 7th pretty good. Hell of an ending, as well.

My mom (a big reader) recommends The Stand. Whenever Stephen King comes up, she always avidly suggests that one.

Yeah, The Stand tends to be the one that comes up the most from people who've read much of his stuff. I'm surprised The Shining doesn't come up more, I thought it was very good. I've also been planning on getting Dark Tower 1 for a while.

Sixth book was too dark for me. Didn't like the fifth either, seemed like Rowling lost her touch. Was disappointed in the third when ... forget it. No more spoilers here. Anyhow, fourth and first seemed the most magical.

Just started the first again today. Haven't read it in YEARS, and I needed to kill 10 minutes before class.

I think the dark, intense aspects of the book are why I did like it :P Rereading 1-3 they just seem so much like childrens' books. Maybe they are more magical but the fact that they seemed to be directed at a much younger audience made them less interesting to me.

Just finished reading Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex. The Artemis Fowl series is an easy read but the characters just work so well together it makes the books really enjoyable. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an eighth book!

Its like she's tossing my childhood out the window with 5-7.

Well that's essentially what happens to Harry.

Spoilers!

Basically this - the innocence in the first ones deserts the stage quickly - although the first couple are hardly violence free.
