This was very interesting. Good choice.

I think I'm going to read the Dark Tower series unless anyone has objections or tells me it goes to shit half way through book 3.

If I remember correctly it is pretty solid through book 5. It does fall apart or at least becomes dissatisfying in books 6 and 7 (which I find typical of King's endings). I'd consider it still worth the read though.

Not sure how I managed to avoid reading this for so long, but just started:

Hey, m@t, there's another little-known book you might enjoy called "War and Peace", ever heard of it?

Not sure I can bring myself to take that on actually Ed. Take this to mean you cover-to-covered it yourself.

Also, btw, all of you who are NOT losers (m@t, me, and MAYBE one other person) should read The Round House, really good stuff.

Going to finish Imperfect Birds this week, then read one more book next week (maybe Joe Queenan's new book or the one about circumnavigation) and then read Anna Karenina.

These were great books. The third, An American Spy, less so.

I preferred the third book to the second, but the first was definitely the best of the series.

From recommendations earlier in this thread I'm reading Zahn's "Heir to Empire", and if this is the best Star Wars novel then I'm definitely going to avoid ever reading another.

I love Monte Cristo. Definitely all time top 5.

I read War and Peace while working overnights for a security company. I get the epicness of it, but not a fan.

So I'm reading Imperfect Birds. I think I may have just reached the climax. I have some concerns about the book but they may not be important. Will wait to see how the book ends to know for sure.
