At the end of the e-book was the first chapter of Barkskins, AP's most recent novel. I liked the first chapter, so I downloaded the whole book and am about 50 pages in now. So far so good.

I finally finished Barkskins this morning. It was enjoyable and I liked her writing style again. The book covers hundreds of years and generations of a couple of families, so one doesn't have a protagonist to root for through the whole story.

I haven't decided what to read next, but I'm ready for a break from Annie Proulx-style naturalism. I'm toying with the idea of reading some more Bret Easton Ellis, which I haven't done for many years.

I'd wager half of SF has readenth AmPsych+LTZero. There's where ya start. Lunar Landing or w/e was OK. The start about his life as an unhinged druggie was stellar lol

I have read both of those (actually a couple of times each, back in the day). I was thinking about Rules of Attraction.

Not so good on my opinion.

post #6203 of 6297
I recall pretty entertaining. Def worthy of a vacay read.
post #6204 of 6297
Rules of attraction changed my life in college. It was my catcher in the rye.

Sphere and The Sound & The Fury.

The latter really isn't doing anything for me. It's good but as great as people say? I dunno... im only about 1/4 or 1/5 through.

Finished these




Rather enjoyed both. Learned so much. The one on cognitive neuroscience was written by an old school hipster. Was a little self masturbatory but entertaining

Reading



Which is fantastic. I'm going to pick up umberto eco's name of the rose cuz if it. Did not know Gibson was a fan.

Gave up on walden (like 60% done then he started listing things he bought and the prices and planting I think beans) and zen the art of motorcycle maintenance (Thinking and writing is so shallow and too self masturbatory. If I'm going to keep reading I need a reach around aka some kind of insight back)

Backlog of books is too long. I should stop reading articles on Twitter and Reddit

»zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance

Also bailed. Very disappointing given all the peeps who'd raved how transformational it is (was to them).
post #6208 of 6297
Yeah I've heard so much about it. It actually felt like reading walden (with the various truism like epiphanies) only not as relatable. Like a lesser writer attempted that kind of mentality.

Every book I read tho references other books that I now want to read. Never ending list. I want to read everything
post #6209 of 6297
Really? OK add this to the list. So good.
post #6210 of 6297
That sounds really good. Def something I should read
