Cormac Mccarthy "Outer Dark", just brilliant southern gothic litterature, still far from the best Mccarthy book I have read.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.

Pebble in the Sky. The foundation saga is the pinnacle of Asimov's work, but this is an enjoyable read.

Re: Which book do you currently read?

Alter of Bones by Philip Carter

The last book I read was actually really good, up until the old man was talking to the other old man who killed his wife. A bit too chatty.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far you can go.

'Eragon' for only the second time, despite it being around for ages and being one of my favourites.

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

The Alter of Bones book was excellent if you like action/thriller/mafia type stuff. I have no idea how this guy came up with such an interesting conspiracy theory (break out your tin foil hats!) on the murder of Marilyn Monroe and JFK, but it made for a good book.

Somebody who knows me entirely too well bought me this book a few days ago. I find it makes the time between the episodes pass more smoothly.

'How I Live Now'

It's a big girly, but I like it. To tell the truth, I don't mind girly books at all, they don't bother me in the slightest.

Will look for something a bit lighter to read soon.
I loved that book, one of the favorite things I've ever read. Very similar to some things I've written, only 45 or 50 times better constructed and written

Just finished. A very enlightening book about how Adidas and Blatter built a corruption system and that with Platini nothing will get better cause he learned the job at Blatter.

It's a biographical novel about the destiny of Bahne Rabe, a former German rower who won an Olympic Gold medal in 1988 coxed eights and who died due to complications of anorexia 2 days before his 38th birthday in 2001.
