i just finished Borderliners by Peter Hoag. (o has funny scandinavian slash thingy through it but i couldn't figure out how to do that). it was this really odd story about children who are societal "borderliners" placed as an experiment at a prestigious danish private boarding school in the 70's. it also contains a lot of musings on society, fitting in, and most of all about time. i liked it a lot.

next thing i have to read is War and Peace. for school. NOT looking forward to that.

'Screwtape Proposes a Toast' by CS Lewis. Really good, very thought-provoking.

Also, '44 Scotland Street' by Alexander McColl Smith. Lovely book <3

I'm reading The Stand by Stephen King for like the fourth time.
It's ridiculously long but God it's worth the read.

My favourite book of all time is It by Stephen King, which again is ridiculously long but worth it.

I have a thing about long books, more than 1000 pages and I'm sold.

I'm reading Every Dead Thing by John Connolly at the mo'. 'Tis rather good, but I've still got 3/4 to go :P

whispers 09-06-2007 11:40 PM

Same as before, but I've also started Tess of the D'Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy. :)

The last book I finished was The Girls Who Went Away by Ann Fessler. It's about young women that became pregnant and were sent away to unwed mother's homes during 1947-1973. What they went through before, during and after they surrendered their child. It's a very enlightening book on the subject. It really enables you to see the situation from the mother's point of view.

I'm currently reading Crank by Ellen Hopkins. This one is about a girl named Kristina. She's pretty much a good girl gone "bad". She lives with her mom & step-dad in a nice neighborhood, has good friends, gets good grades, etc. Then the summer before her junior year of high school, she starts have problems w/ her mom. So she decides to get in contact with her deadbeat dad, and later moves in with him. There she meets a guy, her first love, who introduces her to crank aka "the monster"........
You have to read it to find out the rest!

i liked It, apart from the book is unnecisarily long, i pretend the protagonist wasnt a writer and I pretend the unrealistic orgy never happened. Its a good book though.

Currently reading Dante's Divine Comedy.

I just read "Lullaby" by Chuck P. and am now reading Milton's "Paradise lost" and "House of leaves" both are amazing, so far.

TheSuffererComplex 10-06-2007 10:54 PM

I'm reading 1408 by Stephen King.

I just finished The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King. Great stuff

New Slang 10-06-2007 10:55 PM

^^ I'm reading Paradise Lost by Milton as well.
It's a bit of a joke to be honest, takes me about 7 minutes per page :|

I'm also reading Post Office by Bukowski. It's really good.
