    Wow, this book was absolutely mesmerizing. Can't remember the last time I read something so gripping and powerful. This gem took home the Pulitzer in 1988, and deservedly so. A true classic in American literature.

    This was definitely the best book I've ever read. It's a masterpiece in every sense of the word. Brilliantly written with fascinating characters (especially the judge). It is extremely violent, but that definitely shouldn't stop anyone from reading it.

    I finished reading William Gibson's Neuromancer. It was interesting and it's definitely an important book, but it was difficult for me to get through at times, I don't know whether it was what can be seen as 'technobabble' language or what. It does remind me of Stephenson's Snow Crash, which in my opinion is the better of the two books.

    Loved the movie so I decided to read the book. Thought it was ****ing fantastic. The last chapter sucked though, the movie ended on the second to the last chapter and the book should have ended there too.

    So I finished the above book in 2 days. Sure it's juvenile fiction and an easy read, but it sure is a great story!

    Now I'm waiting for the library to send me the rest of the books!

    "The Sea of Monsters" is next!

    Ok, due to car troubles, I have been relegated to public transportation lately...and boy did I pick the wrong book to start reading. I can't get through half a page without laughing out loud...and that kind of behaviour tends to make folks nervous. This is Leary at his best...f'Dennis Miller, the real man's rantologist is D.L.

    next up, cause I just cannot get enough of an underdog story
