Re: Which book do you currently read?

The customary list of school books I have to labour through:

- Anglo-Saxon England and the Norman Conquest
- The Theory of Knowledge
- The French Revolution



so I can only afford to read one of my own books now:

- A Clash of Kings: George R.R. Martin

Awesome books by a fantastic writer

Yeah... I just finished reading all of his books now..
Digital Fortress would be my second favourite... I think it could be made into a movie.. It was so good!
Angels & Demons has to be my overall favourite. It was an awesome storyline and not once kept me bored. Deception Point was okay.. The first 550 pages basically had me bored the whole time.. But then after it started to get good.
Yeah you're right The DaVinci Code was overrated.. The name is so misleading though. He didn't really have a point in the movie because the code was just written on the paintings and stuff. But i guess it kind of did because of the fictional stuff dan brown wrote about with the last supper painting.

Re: Which book do you currently read?

I'm going through The Origin Of Species by Darwin. I've read parts of it before in German but now I'm doing it in English for college. It's a great training to understand the language of science in English.

I'm currently reading: REJECTING The Da Vinci Code, ...by a Catholic Committee.

I read Digital Fortress, though, and have to admit that Mr. Brown can tell a story...
