What Book Are You Reading? — Part IV

I’m about to read the kite runner, is it any good?

The ending sucks, terribly, but the remainder 90% of it are really good :smile:

I’m readying The Odyssey in English class. Just finished reading The Cyclops part…that cyclops eating his men ugh!

I’m trying to read Les Miserables again. I know it’s supposedly fantastic but I just couldn’t get myself to read it earlier. I mean, half of the book is a novel and half is blatant political commentary, and there’s not much transition between it. It’s kinda disconcerting and boring sometimes but whatever, maybe that’s just me. I’m not so good with classical literature, but I’ll give it another shot.

I’m reading Platon’s Phaidros (Socratic dialogue), Jacques Derrida’s Plato’s Pharmacy and De la Grammatologie, Nietszche’s Birth of Tragedy, Aristotle’s On Rhetoric.

Today I bought Joyce’s Ulysses and Marquez’ Cien Años de Soledad, almost bought Borges’ Ficciones too.

I am reading Wicca:A guide for the solitary practitioner by Scott Cunningham

confession time…


i actually LIKE Hamlet!!

it’s… it’s true…


I read Hamlet a while back. I actually really enjoyed it. I don’t remember any of it though. I’d read it again, but there is just so much stuff that I haven’t read before that I want to make a dent in :content:

Fountainhead is amazing so far, very enjoyable.

Thanks Bruno

I just read the first couple chapters its pretty good

I’m Reading The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins, 'tis pretty good so far :tongue:

I am reading The Awakening, by Kate Chopin.

I just finished : The dream Quest of unknown Kadath by H.P Lovecraft
The element of Fire
Digital Knight and am starting reading a story collection of lovecraft storys

“The Dice Man” by Luke Rhinehart.
I just bought it when I was waiting for the train but it turned out to be better than I had expected. :content:

I just started The Inferno by Dante.

Great book! :thumbs: Be stubborn about it, and get to the end, read up to Paradise. It’s a bloody brilliant book.

I read that book last Christmas time (kind of ironic really :content: )

I’m about to start that one, once I finish off Life of Pi by Yann Martel, which I’m reading for an english class.

Picked up Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card at the request of my roommate. I’m only 3 chapters in, but so far as I can tell, the characters are really good. I’ll keep posted on how the story turns out.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelly, and Weaveworld by Clive Barker. Whoa dreamers have a cool taste in literature from reading this.

Wizards bane … really interresting :yes:

I’m starting to read Eldest. It’s the second book of a Trilogy. I first started reading the first book back when I was in 7th grade (2003/2004 I think) and I have complete forgotten about the second book. Good trilogy too.
