Just finished Lewis Nordan's Wolf Whistle. Again, a book for a class that I just happened to like.

Just finished both House, by Tracy Kidder, and Olympiad by Tom Holt. Both were arduous, but enjoyable, and ultimately satisfying reads.

Next is Witch by Gregory MaGuire. I would not recommend it solely due to the R rating it assumes.

Currently reading Armageddon's Children. I recommend it to anyone who's read the Word/Void trilogy and the Shannara series. All are by Terry Brooks. Expect vivid descriptions of death and destruction.

Max Brooks, World War Z, The Zombie War. He also wrote The Zombie Survival Guide. A nice piece that shows how human stupidity can almost kill us all, against a readily defeatable enemy.

Just finished Ender's Game. Very nice, but I predicted the ending. Lucky guess.

Hey, did someone read Crypto? The best of Dan Brown's books, but is easy to know who is the "bad-boss", in my opinion. Maybe is because now the Dan's style is not a news.

Do you know what is the answer to the greatest question ever? It's here.

I like the French. They always go ^^. It's even infectious, if you catch the joke ^^ .

I am enjoying another one of my political reads
Burning Books and Leveling Libraries Extremist Violence and Cultural Destruction by Rebecca Knuth. This is a truly interesting piece of literature, it covers destruction of libraries and books in such places and regimes as the Khmer Rouge, the Taliban, Kashmir Muslim and Hindu conflicts, the Nazi burning of the Berlin Sex Institute, and all sorts of other destruction. First they burn the book that symbolizes the person, then they burn the person if he hasn't run away by then. It even has a section on the looting of museums, libraries, and cultural institutions during our wonderful Iraq war.

Just finished reading Veniss Underground by Jeff Vandermeer. His writing is both intriguing and odd. He also wrote several books on Ambergris, a truly strange place inhabited by odd bibliophiles and mushroom men. "Early History of Ambergris by Duncan Shriek" and "City of Saints and Madmen"

I've started reading the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I've read the first two books this past couple of weeks, but as I don't have the third at home, that'll have to wait. I think it's pretty good though.

Enjoy it while it lasts. After The Shadow Rising it really starts to suck.

Just finished reading John Dies At The End II. If you haven't read either of them they are available online for free right here. Well worth reading.

Atlas Shrugged: huh. A great title, which I seem to recall her writing somewhere that her husband contributed. One of the few times in real life where a rich industrialist invents something.

AS kind of sticks in your mind forever, like that really garish comic book you read as a kid. In that sense, it's some kind of achievement. But man, as a novel, and as a philosophy, it's just goofy. Jack Vance wrote things set in less kooky universes. But AS is apparently dead serious.

Well, unless you just don't read it that way, I suppose. If you simply ignore Rand, and pretend AS was written by Vance, it could be a masterpiece.
