Nathanael West's "The Day of the Locust".

I recently purchases the Zimmerman Telegram by Barbara Tuchman. I would be reading it now if I didn't have it delivered to the wrong address. Hopefully I will be able to start it by Sunday.

The film adaptation is actually rather good. It captures that grotesquely surreal atmosphere.

Reading "This Town" by Mark Liebovich
post #5240 of 5671
Finished Shantaram. Liked it a lot, although the last 25% or so slipped a bit. But a strong thumbs-up overall.
Also read
I don't know that I enjoyed it quite as much as Devil In The White City, but it was still good.
Next up: House of the Locust (my daughter's summer reading assignment), Red Sorghum (arrived yesterday), and/or Sweet Tooth (Ian McEwan's latest).

I thought the only people interested in this lived in DC. Is it as juicy as the DC press is making it out to be?

yup, this is the correct answer. Really everything after the Afghanistan business is a waste of paper.

Agreed. There's a sense of "damn, I'm at 900 pages, I better find a place to land this thing!" Still an excellent read, though.

Just finished this book on based on both your comments, any similar books you would reccomend that I might enjoy?

Loving this. I made a good pick for getting into comics.



Another one I'm enjoying.

Finished Hitchhiker's guide. I thought it was well done, but personally I found it a bit tiresome.

Readng China Meiville's The Scar next.

Saw some aging hippe reading it on the bus yesterday, the radio series was better than the book.

Struggling through Liber Novus The Red Book by Jung, its so dense and complex a text, read for a couple of hours then pause for thought.

Cryptonomicon, Neal Stephenson. I'm about a quarter way through so far and loving it. A lot of the humor in it reminds me of Catch 22, which is a good thing.
