Now I'm all intrigued and shit.
Finished American Gods. really good book. not looking forward to the series.
Trying to read Game of Thrones. but after American gods its a bit boring? maybe i just need to wait a bit. because whats happening is interesting. im just not invested in it.
Going to look for some more good Neil Gaiman.
This book made me go over some of France's revolt in 1789 and a few years after and holy fuck they were brutal. I loved how the book compared both times under an aristocracy and right after the revolt and showing they were both just as bad in their cruelty. I recommend this novel but most of you probably read it in high school.
I did not, sounds pretty cool though so thanks for the recommendation. I hated most books I read in high school. Other than Deadzone, Little Women (Yes I have breasts apparently) and To Kill a Mocking Bird I don't remember a lot of books from High School that I didn't hate.
Started The Stand -- the unabridged one. Expect to finish in 2013.
Don't be ridiculous.
Reading The Talisman and Clash of Kings back and forth. ADD reading! Clash of Kings is pretty damn exciting after that prologue ended. The Talisman seems proof that King needs a co-author more often! The book is almost written in a rhythm. I like that.
I manage about 50 pages a day on weekdays. Even at that pace it'll take me a month and a half.
I read Breakfast of Champions last week. It is a masterpiece. I am upset that it's over and that I can never read it for the first time again. It is about pollution, the fragility of the human mind and its chemistry, and chaos.
Here is maybe the most poignant metaphor I've ever read:
Like everybody else in the cocktail lounge, he was softening his brain with alcohol. This was a substance produced by a tiny creature called yeast. Yeast organisms ate sugar and excreted alcohol. They killed themselves by destroying their own environment with yeast shit.
