The Wheel of Time series. I'm on book ten. I've always been an 'epic fantasy' junkie (LOTR, The Golden Compass, Harry Potter, The Transall Saga), and this is by and far the best series of that genre I've ever read, if not the best book series I've ever read period.

Confederacy of Dunces. Really nice book, the way the characters are introduced. I usually read it with a smile, the big blend of different characters combined with the absurdity of some of the situations, without those situations becoming unrealistic, makes it a real pleasure to read. Next on my to-read list is Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.

The Second Chronicles of Thomas Covenant. Perhaps the third time I've read it. Such an awesome series, there's almost too much to get my head around, haha.

No. What's that about?

I'm reading I Am Ozzy, Ozzy Osbournes biography which has to be one of the most curse heavy books I've ever read. Good book though.
I think I'm gonna move into China Meiville's Embassytown next.

Why did you ragequit? I enjoyed it, quite different from my initial view of Dracula

Reading Van Helsing's dialogue was excruciating.

I am one of the biggest book nerds I know... and I can honestly say that, having nearly finished the novel, I can't recall ever being anything but bored with it.

I liked Van Helsing. Part of the book can be boring, but I find that to be the case with a few older novels that I've had to read this year, like The Curious Case of Dr Jeykell and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein, etc.

I love Bram Stoker's Dracula.
One of my all time favourite novels; I think to many people write it off as their mind is polluted by modern vampires or modern dracula stories and even modern retellings of van helsing and can't put all that away in a little box and thus find dracula boring as it doesn't have all the same flare to it. But it is like the ORIGINAL story, it's just awesome.

Finished The Kite Runner a while ago, but forgot to post here.

Overall a good book. Just some parts of it can be rather bland.

Demonic by Ann Coulter.

It's funny.


That actually got me interested and i decided to read a few pages. Seems it's hating on the Democrat Party in America :P I didn't really read more than 8 pages of it and decided to go back to my regular reading. Seemed interesting though :)

I'm currently reading The overflowing brain by Torkel Klinberg. It gets a bit too technical in some places but i am finding it a pretty good read so far.

Just finished The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid.

Best book I've read in a long while; short, concise, innovative, and perhaps the best ending of any book ever (don't read it if you don't like ambiguity).

Yeah, Ann Coulter doesn't like liberals. She does a lot of research though. Even though much of the book has a lot of left bashing, it does present some interesting French Revolution vs. American Revolution history lessons. If you can get that far or just read that part, you'll be a better person for knowing it.
