Read The Fountainhead, which is fun because I'm in a nearly socialist country. Just finished Children of Hurin, which was so-so. Kind of neat to see Middle-Earth way back when, but seriously lacking in some descriptions. Also, real downer.

That's what happens when you take an unfinished book by one author and tell someone else to finish it.
Commendation to Chris Tolkien for emulating the style of the his dad to a reasonable degree.
If you read the Wikipedia article on it you may see that the reason huge descriptions are missing is that Chris Tolkien only edited the manuscripts to make sure they flow and didn't actually add to it therefore, everywhere were he connected an 'unflowing' part usually has gaps.

Similar with the latest in the Hitchhiker series: And Another Thing...
Eoin Colfer has done a great job emulating Douglas Adam's (RIP) style but at times, he's trying TOO hard and it seems a bit ridiculous.
still a good book though, certainly recommended.

I really enjoyed Children of Hurin, I gotta say. Partly because it had a sense of being a mythological story - which makes sense with what you say, superdemongob. One generation old, thousands of years old, sometimes they feel kinda the same, have kinda the same effects on a manuscript.

Or maybe it was that - I swear - Turin managed to pick up a new name every single chapter. There are few authors who can make that into a positive.

Hopscotch by Julio Cortazar and it's really interesting because you can read it so many ways: every odd chapter, even chapter etc.

Haha, I absolutely stood up and read to the room that hilarious sequence where he picks up three names, and then renames his sword.

It was neat seeing everyone running around middle earth so long ago, and the sensation of 'old' was pretty pervasive.

Just read Nation, Terry Pratchet; FUCKING AMAZING. Go get it.
Am currently reading Spellwright, by some dude; it's mediocre, but has some neat touches to it. Long Price Quartet was better for describing a magical system that was akin to programming. Spellwright feels too much like a 'in defense of dyslexics' novella.

So, I've now finished my copy of Arcadia Snips and the Steamwork Consortium, a work of amateur steampunk that I found by following interesting pictures in TheGreatHippos sig. The book has been released online by the authors here. Not a bad read, but the writing style gets a little too... perhaps the word I'm looking for is silly, in places. Overall an enjoyable book though.

I just finished War and Peace and I must say that I haven't been affected by a book like this and I think I never will be. I'm completely in love with it in every way. I recommend it to everyone and I will read it again in other languages.

I just finished "Burning Chrome" by William Gibson. I put it down a couple months ago and hadn't picked it up again even though I meant to. The final story was worth the wait though. I just wish there were more tales that took place in the world of his Sprawl trilogy ("Neuromancer", "Count Zero", "Mona Lisa Overdrive", and to a lesser extent, the short stories "Johnny Mnemonic", "New Rose Hotel", and "Burning Chrome"). I could explore that world for ages and not get tired of it, constantly seeing different aspects of that dystopia.

Indeed. And my favorite from that collection. It's got a similar sort of kinetic energy to "Neuromancer", and decently fleshed-out characters for being only 25 pages.

"Johnny Mnemonic" and "New Rose Hotel" are also in that collection.

Yeah. I liked Johnny Memnomic - crack addicted ex-navy cyborg dolphin psychic? Yes please - but probably not as much as when Molly told the story in Neuromancer. Personally, it was the non-sprawl, not related at all to his other stuff stories that I liked in that collection. Red Star, Winter Orbit especially. Been meaning to re-read it for a while now.

Coming up to the end of Kim Stanley Robinson's Red Mars, love it. I'll probably try and get Green Mars when I'm in the city tomorrow and I'm trying to figure out what to buy along with it (I habitually have like three books on the go, otherwise I get to the end of each one too fast), maybe something nonfiction, since I haven't read anything really good in that vein since Beware Invisible Cows

I finished The Book Thief which was really excellent and I recommend it to everyone. It's about a girl during WWII who's sent to a foster family in Germany (her parents were communists) and her life there. The storyteller is Death.

I started reading a book in Hebrew called (translated) "Frost", it's some weird suspense book that occurs 500 years in the future in Tel Aviv. It's weird...

About 60~70 pages into Stephen King's The Stand right now. It's really much better than I expected. I mean, it's sorta pulpish sci-fi thriller material, but King's doing such a good frickin' job with it. I mean, to a certain degree, I could accuse the characters of being a little cliched in their personality and problems, but goddamn if I don't manage to sympathize with them anyway. Call them lovingly-done stereotypes or somethin'. Besides, I can't wait to see how he manages to bring them all together.

Besides, I wanted a relatively fun, lightweight way of kicking off my summer reading. Other books I want to tackle include The Iliad (this one's a must for college), Cloud Atlas (which is my English teacher's favorite book ever and she has read a shit-ton of books), and, if I have the time, Gravity's Rainbow. Wish me luck.

Reading "Brideshead Revisited" by Evelyn Waugh and a bit past half-way through. I'm still not sure I understand what it's all about, but I am rather enjoying it anyway. I'm particularly liking the humorous elements, like the narrator's father treating a guest like he's an American despite knowing full well that he's a Brit. I was expecting it to be somewhat harder to read through but I've found it quite light.

I started Ulysses (again) but quit (again). One of these days I'll finish it, I swear!

What I'm reading now: Anti-Intellectualism in American Life by Richard Hofstadter. Brilliant stuff. Published in '62 (I think) but still incredibly relevant.

I'd recommend another similar book: "God is Not Great" by Christopher Hitchens, though his is less emphasis on evolutionary science, but rather the impact of religion to society. I just bought The Greatest Show on Earth, which I will read soon.

Now, I'm reading Garden of Rama by Arthur C. Clarke, the third book of his Rama series. From what I gather, only the first book was truly written by Clarke and is worth reading. The rest was collaborated with Gentry Lee, and is not so good. So far, my conclusion was:
--Rendezvous With Rama: Awesome book! My favourite sci-fi by my favourite author Clarke.
--Rama II: the impression I got was this book is simply "Desparate Housewives in Space". I'm not sure what the authors were thinking. We have humans discovering an awesome piece of alien technology beyond any human imagination. But all they were concerned with are petty rivalries, jealousy, sabotage, romance, contract-deals, etc. I don't get it, when a reader gets all excited about humans encountering mind-boggling extraterrestrial technology, then the book went, "okay don't worry about the alien spaceship. Let's talk about who's banging who, or who's backstabbing who"

I know character-driven stories are supposed to be good, but it seems to be going too far for the case of Rama II.

The Divine Invasion - Philip K Dick
and various Theology books for uni.

My mom managed to get ahold of The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo yesterday (Stieg Larsson) and I am officially in love with the series. My neighbor had both of the sequels (is it considered a series?)** and I finished The Girl Who Played with Fire a few hours ago and am currently delving into the third one, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest. The first was fantastic, the second was good but didn't quite live up to the first, and I'm optimistic about the third one so far.

**A trilogy. I just Google'd it. Millennium Trilogy.

I am also about to read Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, which I am looking forward to immensely. I finished rereading Orson Scott Card's Sarah day-before-yesterday, and I do want to go back and reread the Women of Genesis series. Does anyone know if he planned on concluding it with a fourth? I heard somewhere that a novel titled Women of Israel was supposed to come somewhere along the line, but I haven't heard hide nor hair of it since.

For some reason I found myself reading Douglas Hofstadter's Le Ton beau de Marot again- first all the poem sections then the rest of the book.

DRH was probably one of my first childhood heroes. Along with the Power Rangers.

That pretty much set the tone for the rest of my life.

I'm thinking about trying the 50 books in a year thing. There are arguments against it - like picking short/easy books, but I didn't even try last year and I hit about 45. This year I am behind though, and considering I have read three of the Malazan series(800+ pages each and not quick reads) I am doing pretty well.
