How is it? That's one of the few I haven't read.

I'm reading The Message in the Bottle by Walker Percy.

I finished The Year Of The Flood by Margaret Atwood today, was pretty good but probably should have read Oryx And Crake first.

Reading Bitten by Kelley Armstrong. Its bad, but at the same time its at least entertaining. So far.

I finished Bitten. Didn't hate it but didn't like it either, wouldn't recommend it. Armstrong needs to learn to show, not tell. I could skip the protagonist's long, long angsty rants explaining how she's feeling about the situation at hand and not miss anything.

Now I'm reading Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse. I find it weird I found it at HMV.

I`m torn between finishing The Master and Margarita, Wuthering Heights and Notes from the Underground (Dostoyevsky)

Anyone got an opinion on what should I start with?

Read Wuthering Heights first. It's a favorite of mine. Altho, Notes From The Underground is damned good as well.

I'm currently reading Stein On Writing by Sol Stein. Supposedly one of the best writing books around. We'll see....

It was lovely, despite the fact that the actual point of the story only happens at the end and everything else is just drinking and talking.

Tristessa by Kerouac. I've gotten back into him in a big way recently.

I'd be interested in what you think of that one when you're done. I've not read it yet.

So, you won't be seeing me in this thread for a while. It's 570 pages and really fucking good, so I'll be taking my time and paying attention.
