Finished reading this last night:
Absolutely fantastic. Can't wait for the Criterion release of the movie later this year.
Going to start this tonight:
The 4th and final Ring book. Very excited.
I just finished reading E. M Forster’s A Passage to India and I am halfway through J.R.R Tolkien’s The Fellowship of the Ring. I am also going to start Yukio Mishima’s Confessions of a Mask and Yasunari Kawabata’s Snow Country soon. I am in a Japanese kind of mood.
I read A Passage To India in high school and didn't care a whole lot for it, but I remember almost nothing about it.I just finished reading E.

Let me know what you think of Confessions Of A Mask after you've read it. I've nearly bought that book a few times...
earlier i had posted that i started this. yesterday i finished it and i was very disappointed and bored with it. no offense to kanon fans but i found it very predictable and there were some elements to the story that did nothing to further the plot. the whole thing felt like a danielle steele book. in his defense though, the description of berlin and the people after the russians came was very good.
Anyway, I just finished:
And I am just starting:

I finished reading the books from my last post and the following:
The Call of the Chutuluh and Other Stories-H.P Lovecraft
The Satanic Verses-Salman Rushdie
Queer- William S. Burroughs
My Last Sigh- Luis Bunuel
Do Androids Do Of Electric Sheep-Phillip K. Dick
I pretty much enjoyed all of them specially The Satanic Verses which was a surreali, complex, and awesome book in my opinion. My Last Sigh, which is filmaker Luis Bunuel’s autobiography was also really good since he talks about the surrealist movement, the Spanish Civil War, Salvador Dali, and so many other interesting bits.
I am currently juggling the following three books:
Juan Rulfo’s Pedro Paramo
Toni Morrison’s Sula
Chuck Palahniuk’s Lullaby
So, uh, yeah, that’s me.
