The Conquest of Gaul-Julius Caesar
It's actually very entertaining, and it's amazing how much some of it still applies today.

I'm still reading Dubliners, but now I'm also reading Antigone by Sophocles.

Two Weeks Notice by Rachel Caine.

The War Doctor 30-01-2013 08:00 AM

Yesterday I finished reading Dubliners by James Joyce and started reading The Poor Mouth by Flann O Brien. Fun fact: he wrote the book in Irish, then translated it into English and back into Irish before getting it published. And then in the 1970s it was translated back into English. So it's a translation of a translation of a translation. And it's absolutely hilarious.

nowhereman 01-02-2013 10:31 PM

My friend sent me 50 Shades of Grey, so I'm reading that now.

one_step_closer 02-02-2013 11:40 PM

Gave up on previous book, again, finding it hard to find something I want to read at the moment.

Now reading Diagnosis: Dispatches from the Frontlines of Medical Mysteries - Lisa Sanders.

She's the technical advisor to the show House.

I am currently reading Night, By Elie Wiesel. It is about the author as a young boy and his journey during the holocaust.

The War Doctor 04-02-2013 09:25 AM

I finished reading The Poor Mouth this morning. It was insane and hilarious. At some point this week I'll need to get started on Country Girls by Edna O Brien and/or Oedipus Rex by Sophocles.

I am reading "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry" By Rachel Joyce, is good so far.

The War Doctor 07-02-2013 10:55 AM

Currently reading The Country Girls by Edna O Brien. I feel misled - I was told that this was a really nice, innocent, coming-of-age story. Maybe it is, but it's pretty bloody grim so far. Still, I'm enjoying it.

one_step_closer 07-02-2013 05:21 PM

Before the Storm - Diane Chamberlain.

weightless 07-02-2013 06:53 PM

Angela's Ashes - Frank McCourt. Pretty depressing but interesting too.

That sounds so utterly amazing, the way she changed her/his name made me laugh so hard - Bratniss Everclean, I pmsl!c':

Hobbes 18-02-2013 05:11 PM

Something To Tell You - Hanif Kureishi. Really good so far.

TheSunWillRise 21-02-2013 12:49 AM

Right now I'm reading Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs; so far it is absolutely amazing. Ransom Riggs has made just this incredible world of fantasy with pictures that are real. There's a list of the people he thanked for letting him use their pictures... so far it's really really good... I can't wait to finish it. He is very good at not giving stuff away and actually creating a good story...

xxhappydaysxx 21-02-2013 10:03 AM

^ That is in my to read pile, so glad its good!

I am currently reading the Psychopath Test, By Jon Ronson

It is amazing!

The War Doctor 26-02-2013 07:08 PM

I finished The Country Girls by Edna O Brien earlier today. I really enjoyed it, though it was a little sad. Next on my list is Amongst Women by John McGahern, and at some point I'll also have to read Topographica Hibernica, Giraldus Cambrensis' book about the history and topography of Ireland, which is famous for its almost total lack of scholarly rigour, and its blatant and hilariously over-the-top racism.

The War Doctor 27-02-2013 09:36 AM

Started Amongst Women this morning. I'm enjoying it so far.

OceanBlues 27-02-2013 07:17 PM

i'm reading The Catcher in the Rye.
