    It is! I finally received my copy of it. With all the troubles of moving again I had little time to start reading it. Finally yesterday i've started reading it. Finished the 1st chapter, I admit i'm hook. I'm probably going to devour it quickly.

    Crap. Pure, undiluted excrement. If you want to ingest your Hitchhiker's with moving pictures, dig up the old TV series. Technically modest, but otherwise very much enjoyable.

    Rich Father, Poor Father
    Motivational book.
    Dunno the author.
    Happiness is what motivates me through its absence!

    Faith is what makes you weak!

    Love is nothing but an egocentric game.

    I finished reading such a good book today, that I just had to recommend it to y'all. Steven Hall's debut novel, The Raw Shark Texts. It's hard to describe the book accurately; I suppose you could say it is a surreal suspense-horror thriller of sorts, though it doesn't really fit into any of those nichés snugly.

    It tells the story of a man, Eric Sanderson, who awakens to find out he has lost his memory almost completely. Not only that, but he discovers it's not the first time, and that one of his former selves is sending him letters and other items to help him figure out the dangerous creature that stalks him, causing him to lose bits of himself: a conceptual shark, a creature that feeds off the memories of humans.

    Through the use of wild imagination and verbal, conceptual and narrational acrobatics, Hall truly manages to create one of the most unique novels I've read... well, ever, really! He blurs the line of reality, dream and fiction, words and images, and calls into question the very essence of existence in a manner that can only be called skillful. It's almost like playing poker the whole book through: you're watching the narration for any signs of bluffing, knowing that the slightest shift of expression will bring it all crashing down; this is part of the excitement, to see if Hall can keep it up for the whole book. And amazingly, he can. Perhaps only the very last page, the short epilogue, is a letdown, but up until that, it's pure brilliance from start to finish.

    I truly recommend this book to anyone looking for a different reading experience.

    Anyone else read anything cool lately?

    Next on the platter: Stephen Hawkings' A Brief History Of Time... should be a nice piece of easy reading.

    I've still got about 120 pages to go, but I'll say some stuff about it.

    It's about a small girl, Liesel Meminger, who lives during World War Two. She's the main character, but the narrator is Death itself, a separate character. As the years pass, she gets more and more accustomed to the life at the Hubermanns'. Everything changes when Max Vandenburg, a Jew, moves in in their cellar.

    The prose is quite inventive for a YA book. The characters are all relatable, and the story itself... it's just amazing. I was quite close to shedding some tears during the novel [what with it being a WW2 novel and all, and Death's description of the dead and dying].

    Dexter is Delicious

    The fifth book in the Dexter series and I'm enjoying it more then the third or fourth one. It is obviously better then the TV Series but I already said that in another thread. If you've seen the Dexter TV Series and liked it then you're gonna love the books.

    Just re-read (for the third time) Animal Farm and 1984 in one sitting.

    I usually don't re-read books after the second time but the book depository is unuaslly slow atm and I have "devour" something in the meantime.

    When my order finally arrives,i'll be reading "the complete works of O.Wilde".Can't fucking wait.

    I like the show better. Unlike movies made from books that are very shortened the show is more extensive (comparing 1st book and 1st season). I also think the storywriting is better in the show, and they're also brilliant at the "presentation" (actually making the show). The writing in the book isn't but it's not great either.
