That Wasp Factory book looks good, but the Amazon description/reviews say that you need to have a strong stomach for 'graphic depictions of violence to animals'...sorry, no...a man has to know his limitations.
Speaking of 'violence to animals'
Good book. Written in a very disjointed style. No real chronology. Lots of info on the man behind the man and some surprisingly heavy stuff folded into the fun stories. If you enjoy the show this is really a must read.
two books I read in cancun last week:
pretty straightforward pirates story with just a little more depth than the Depp movies. Fast-paced and very fun read.
Basically US sends spy into Iran to help two alleged dissidents, while trying to figure out whether Ahmadinejad really has and will use nukes. to Another fast-paced read, and quite entertaining. Kept reminding myself it was fiction, as was pretty scary when imagining any of this would ever come close to happening.
Read these. They were written by a girl I went to high school with. The second one just won a Printz Honor. I feel the need to spread the word.
Just tore thru this...it's an easy read. I have been a Breuer 'Regulator' for a while. He is a hell of a funny guy who may be the best natural storyteller in a long time. He has a good book in him, this ain't it. Not a bad book, but Brew has sorta had a 'spiritual awakening' of late, and while, as a severly lapsed Catholic I find it really interesting, it overwhelms the book. There are a lot of laughs in here...I honestly had to put the book down at times, but he is so busy being honest and forthright that a lot of the funny stuff ends way too fast.
Rampaging ****ers of Everything on the Crazy ****ting Planet of the Vomit Atmosphere: Three Novels by Mykle Hansen
Can't post a pic, sorry. This is one of those bizarro fiction books. If you aren't familiar with them they are basically just short of self published ridiculously over-the-top books about really weird stuff. For example, one of the three stories in this book is a sort of 'fantastic voyage' story about a journey into Agnes Cuttlebottom's rear end. If you have an open mind some of this stuff can be almost fun in a artsy fart jokes kinda way.
This is a little more mainstream. Basically fairy tales you would read to your kids if you want them to turn out like me. Lots of 'WAH-wah' moments and some real funny stuff. Highly recommended.
