    I finished it a few weeks ago. It took me a few weeks to get through Brazil, and about a week to get through the rest of the book. It flies. Easily the best I've ever read.

    I've got less than 200 pages left now, should just be a week or two (I only read on the train if I'm not sleeping). I'm really enjoying Belbo's character development and the different ways we get to see him, through Casaubon and through Casaubon reading Belbo's entries.

    The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet - David Mitchell. I am about halfway through so far and it is a fascinating read with some great characters.

    Any other Mitchell fans out there? This was the first read of his but will probably read some other books of his.

    On deck is To Siberia - Per Petterson.


    Cloud Atlas was amazing.

    Just started "Let Me In". I thought "Let the Right One In" was one of the best vampire movies ever made, so I'm looking forward to the book. "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" is next in my queue - kind of a Swedish smorgasbord of books.

    I really enjoyed ghostwritten, but was disappointed by number9dream

    Ham on Rye is excellent if you haven't read it.

    Recently finished The Catcher in the Rye. Now rereading The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
    Anyone have a recommendation for a book similar to these?

    I watched the movie the other week and thought it was fantastic. Let us know what you think of the book.

    I'm reading Blood Meridian but I'm not all that into it. McCarthy's technique really bugs me sometimes.
