    After years of refusing to read Harry Potter, I finally caved.

    Started reading at the beginning of the year and now I'm on Book 7:

    It's amazing that both these books written around the same time are so spot on to the way society is moving towards.
    Just finished 1984 and was blown away. Definitely one of the best books I've I ever read. I wanna get an INGSOC Tattoo. I'll definitely check out Brave New World.

    todo list:
    Brave New World
    Other Orwell books
    Into The Wild

    Currently reading:
    Animal Farm
    Fahrenheit 451

    Dashiell Hammett's Red Harvest

    Amazon.com: Red Harvest (9780679722618): Dashiell Hammett: Books

    FANTASTIC READ! Hammett has always had an amazing grasp of prose, and Red Harvest is no exception. When I'm in Hammett's worlds, I'm always so blown away that a majority of his long form work were in the late-20s to mid-30s, and nothing after 1934's The Thin Man. So, so good. Highly recommended.

    http://www.amazon.com/Complete-Novel...tt_at_ep_dpi_4

    You can score all of his novels in one place, though I'm not 100% sure the enclosed books are word-for-word and the complete stories. (From the amazon reviews, it looks as though it is complete.)

    So glad that classes passed me by a long time ago, I read for the simple enjoyment of it.


    Heartbreaking...imagine Giving tree crossed with Let the Right One In...it's an old story, but man is the biggest monster of all.


    Little Stevie King's son done good....goddamn look at the dust jacket photo, if he don't look like his father's son.
    This is uneven...but like most of Joe Hill's stuff so far, hints at good things to come.


    And this is the ****. My 2 fave things...Zombies and Short Stories. So far, a lot of the stories have had a current events feel...lotsa parallels between troubled times/war in other countries...but a fair smattering of splattering too. Just good stuff. If you haven't read Skipp/Spectors BOOK of the DEAD anthologies(why in the **** haven't you????...Get on it NOW) this is a solid buncha eater stories.

    Loved both of them, McCarthy's a literary master. Blood Meridian's my favorite book by him, his prose in that novel is unparalleled.
