    Reading this one now and really am liking it



    Just finished this one that the wife gave me a couple of years ago for Christmas. It was good as well and gave some good backstory on the players and some present info on where they are.

    One of the best ****ing books I've ever read. The plot on its own isn't the most interesting, but John Irving's writing style kept me engrossed pretty much from the beginning. I was moved to tears at the end, something that doesn't often happen when I read a book.

    Cool Beans! I have this in my to-do stack of books and it just moved up a few places. Isn't this the one about the height-challenged kid that they made into a crappy flick?

    Dude, Owen Meany should totally be a post in the "Books you couldn't finish thread" for me. Couldn't finish that book. Hahahhaha JD, that crappy flick is the only reason why I have no ill will towards the book. Yeah I know it's not the same, but I got the gist of it!

    Also, I picked up:

    Mariah Mundi - The Midas Box by GP Taylor last night while Adgy and I were trolling the Crown Books Liquidation Center (which is an evil place because I drop lots of money there). So far it's pretty good...hopefully it stays that way because I picked it up based on the dust jacket cover design and the summary on the inside.

    Yea, the movie Simon Birch is loosely based on Owen Meany. I saw it a long time ago, way before I read the book, and from what I remember it was a really ****ty movie. I actually had no idea the two were related when I first started reading the book. The movie changes the story and leaves out several pivotal plotlines. It really didn't do Irving's masterpiece any justice.

    Just finished reading Choke today. I liked it, thought it was one of Palahniuk's better novels. It was nice to have a quick reader after the nearly 700 page Owen Meany.

    Up next for me is some Fyodor Dostoevsky. Gonna read Notes from Underground

    About halfway through it, at times the story feels too good to be true, others it feels too strange not to be.
    Prince George: You know, Blackadder, for me socks are like sex. Lots of it about and I never seem to get any.
