Now I'm reading (and almost finishing) Interview with a Vampire.

@Punaxe:

Evolutionair Denken ("evolutionary thinking", about the influence of Darwin's theory on many other aspects of life such as language, culture, social siences et cetera.)

I hope they don't leave out the huge influence it had on Hitler as well :whi:

I didn't mean to be offensive towards you, but maybe towards the Darwin obsessed "scientists" of today... who take everything he said as the word of God (a particularly interesting parallel here :p), and that book sounded like another one of those works. But yeah, can't judge it by the title I guess.

Darwin-obsessed again sounds fairly offensive... Darwin, and all future scientists working on evolution, answered one of the great questions of mankind. Who's complaining about "Einstein-obsessed" scientists? What's the difference?

SHe was little though, remember..at the eclipse lol.

Spoilers ahead:

This novel is most closely connected to Gerald's Game, in which it is revealed that main character Jessie Burlingame was sexually abused by her father during a solar eclipse. The same solar eclipse is detailed in Dolores Claiborne, and during the eclipse Dolores has a psychic vision where she sees Jessie being abused. Many years later, Dolores again imagines that Jessie is in danger; assumedly she is seeing the events detailed in Gerald's Game, with Jessie handcuffed to a bed. The two novels were initially conceived to be part of a single volume, titled In the Path of the Eclipse. Later editions of the novel have a foreword that explains the connection between the two.

I love Chuck Palahniuk, althought I've only read Choke and most of Fight Club (didn't get to finish it because my copy was stolen..grrr). I was going to get Haunted last time I was at the book store, but I still have Diary to finish, so I figured I'd wait.

The last book I actually finished was The Order of Odd-Fish by James Kennedy. It was a little kid-ish, but fun nonetheless.

Right now I'm reading Looking For Alaska by John Green and I quite like it.

Oh, man I want to read diary so bad. It is my goal to own and read all of his books. I really want to read his nonfiction Stranger than fiction and his new one. Fight Club, although, one of my favorite movies is not my favorite of his novels. Pygmy just came out as well and I'm waiting for it to come out on paper back. My friend has Choke as well so I'm gonna read that when she's done.

You have to finish reading the rest of the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice, I've read them all & it just gets better, The Queen of the Damned (book 4 in the saga, Interview with the Vampire is the 1st one) is the BEST. Luscious :tmb:

She also wrote the Mayfair Witches Saga, & after that there were books where characters from both sagas appear. I'm reading Out of Egypt. Her books are now taking on a Christian flavor, I heard she won't be writing books about supernatural creatures anymore :(

Digital Fortress was boring. You can finish it but then you'll be skeptical the next time you see another Dan Brown book :D

i recently finished Child 44 by Tom Rob Smith. i can't recommend this book strongly enough. at first glance may seem like, "oh another serial killer book." but the characters are rich & deep, the romantic arc is singularly unique and the backdrop of Stallinist Russia provides a hauntingly tense atmosphere. it's a GREAT book, a quick read, wonderful suspense-driven action, and utterly human throughout.

highly recommended.

I'd strongly suggest Kelley Armstrong's Otherworld series and she has also released 2 books as part of a young adult trilogy set in the same world but it's 'the darkest powers' trilogy and does not involve characters from the otherworld series.

I didnt think these books would be 'my thing' but after hearing Angelina Jolie might be playing the role of Elena from the first book 'Bitten' I decided to read it and now own the series to date.

Now after reading the book Im not sure Angelina would have been the right choice (film isnt happening atm anyway) but if you want to check out more the official site is www.kelleyarmstrong.com

Hope someone takes as much enjoyment in the series as I have!

I'm currently reading The Foreshadowing by Marcus Sedgwick for my summer reading. You'd think that if one were entering their Junior year of high school, you'd give one something more challenging to read like Edgar Allen Poe or Ernest Hemingway. I'd much rather read their brilliance, but I suppose that'll have to make for some independent reading.

http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/images/n24/n120431.jpg

It's about an English teen girl who wishes to become a nurse. The setting is post-WWI and her brother is to fight in the war. She gets the opportunity to work in a hospital, and she gets premonitions (she's been getting them since she was a kid) of people that are going to die in the war and her brother is one of them. Disguising herself, she crosses the battle, risking her life trying to find him and somehow prevent his death.

It's interesting to say the least. I've only started and it's very nicely written so far, so I'm looking forward to reading more.

Evolutionairy thinking, about how Darwin's theory has influenced many other sciences today. Unfortunately, after having read The Selfish Gene, this book didn't offer much news, a few fun facts aside (for example, I hadn't heard of the aquatic ape theory (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aquatic_ape_hypothesis) yet).

http://www.marjoleinknuit.nl/user_files/afbeeldingen/22-5-2009-12-7-taalboek.jpg

Finished this in a few hours. It's about today's use of the Dutch language. Unfortunately it wasn't structured at all, just someone giving her opinion on isolated aspects of language. I had expected more analysis and an answer to "why" and "how", but instead it was just someone's ramblings gathered in the shape of a book.

I think everyone will contest your notion of evolution bein a "religion", but I agree that it can definitely be a huge part of someone's world view and that it is sometimes communicated quite aggressively. This discussion on whether or not this is wrong warrants an entire thread though, which we've had many times before so let's not get into it :p

The book specifically was about that extention of Darwin's observations to other sciences. What do you mean by it being a bit too much? If it's relevant, which it often is, why should it not be studied? It's not like people are trying to cram the idea of evolution into their field at all cost, it's just that they discovered that many things may have an evolutionary explanation.

just finished the third installment of King's revolutionary series The Dark Tower.it ended with a cliffhanger,no doubt about that.:D just some minor problems I had with the book:

1) how can the tick-tock man still be alive? and....

2) how did Eddie stump Blaine the mono with his joke riddles?oh well...

overall it was an awesome awesome book.

currently reading:Wizard and Glass,the fourth installment.

it's said to consist of mostly flashback memories of Roland the Gunslinger,hope I enjoy it!!:p

Is that the book that the old 'The Egyptian' film is based on? I seem to recall the main character was called 'Sinuhe', a doctor who falls in love with a Princess and ends up working in an embalming room? Good film, from what I remember.

Yes, it is. I haven't seen the film, but the book is really good and interesting. :) I recommend it.

The thing is though, the book was published before the fall of the Berlin wall, so obviously the author didn't have access to records from the Eastern Bloc. If he had had this access the book probably wouldn't been even longer. Still, this guy was actually a foreign journalist (American) reporting in Nazi Germany, so he had first-hand experience on what life was like under the Nazi regime. He was also present at the Nurmeburg Trials. Makes for some really interesting reading.

Taken from my Facebook status:



Just finished The Strain: Book One by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan. Two days ago I finished reading The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. Both e-books. Accumulatively, reading time was less than 12 hours. Why I can't read more important tomes with this vigor, I'll never know.... :P

The Time Traveller's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger.
Dammit, if my tear ducts are still functioning, I would have cried gallons. Too bad I shut them off when I was between 15 and 16. A non-conventional love story, beautifully written, and can get easily confusing if you don't pay attention to the dates of Henry time travels. Both Henry and patience Clare don't deserve the ending they get (the one during the party, not the future). I hope Eric Bana and Rachel McAdams will play the characters right in the movie version. :)

The Strain: Book One by Guillermo Del Toro and Chuck Hogan.
You like zombies? You like vampires? How about vampire zombies?! Did I just give the book away? :D Very slow buildup 1/3 of the book. The rest 2/3 of the book is very gripping, especially the ending. A 777 landed on the New York runaway, shut itself completely, and inside containing more than a hundred seemingly dead passengers and crews. What do you do? Of course you open the damned thing and let all hell break lose. It's a thriller (ha!) that follows the journey of a pair of disease control doctors witnessing the horror of the century. Can't wait for book 2! :D

FYI, interestingly the main characters from The Strain makes a very interesting Left4Dead group. You get the main guy, Ephraim Goodweather, the CDC doctor. Then Abraham Setrakian, a professor who knows the origins of these creatures and how to fight them, too bad his heart is not so good cos he's old. And then we have Vasiliy Fet, a rat exterminator who pointed out that vampire zombies are not much different from rats and his skill in hunting them comes in handy. And then we have the token girl, in the form of Nora Martinez, a biologist and Ephraim's work partner, who can hold a fight on her own. Hell, there's even a zombie flood scene, involving a man in a taxi and a lot of zombie vampires. Is there anybody willing to mod the game to incorporate the book? :D

It entertains the interesting notion of a society that has everything it has ever wanted and yet, they are more barbaric than the poor, and nearly illiterate 12 districts thay they control. It is the sequel to The Hunger Games and it keeps you guessing the entire time. I couldn't put it down.

Joe Hill is Stephen Kings son :)! So of course when I saw his book I thought that maybe it would have big and obvious traces of his dads writing in it but it couldn't be more different. Only book of Kings I would say its even a tiny bit like it Cell..and that was a one of for King anyway.

Ohh alright, I did just recently read something about his son being a writer too. Haven't seen any of his books around though, I'm afraid.

A Wolf At The Dinner Table - Augusten Burroughs.

It was more somber and alot less funny than his other books, but I still enjoyed it. This book explores the author's dark childhood relationship with his father..

I have never read a book of Dan Brown. That's so typically me. If something becomes too popular, I just don't want to follow the 'herd'. :o

It was different with Harry Potter, since I had already read the first 2 books before the hype started with the movies and everything.

So, are they any good? Is the whole religious theme not too forced on the reader? :confused:

Just read the "Last Oracle" by James Rollins, it was a bit disappointing compared to his others, way too many characters to keep track of.

Currently reading the "Tiger Warrior" by David Gibbins. So far it's the best of the four he's written, the chapters are ridiculously long though!

If you enjoyed the Twilight series, I recommend the Mortal Instruments series: City of Bones, City of Ashes, and City of Glass by Cassandra Clare. Much better than the Twilight series if you ask me. And even better than Mortal Instruments, Ellen Hopkins' books:

Crank
Glass
Impulse
Burned
Identical
Tricks

I've read the the bolded ones, Tricks being the one I'm reading currently. Ellen Hopkins is a literary God.
