Dan Brown, The Da Vinci Code.
In Slovene of course. :ohn:

Yeah I know, you all probably read it ages ago. :p But I read it today and I must say it's amazing. :tmb: I loved everything about it, I was very curious all the time, and surprised, and just amazed by everything. Dan Brown is a genius! :cln:

The Collector by John Fowles

Absolutely great. Couldn't stop reading it, definitely deserves to be a more widely renowned classic that it currently is. Even gets into aesthetic philosophy and politics withoiut slowing down the strictly two character plot for even a second.

It makes a decent change from his usual horror stories of demons and such. I'd much prefer him to carry on with the Demonata series, though D:

I lol'd so hard last night while watching an episode of QI when Stephen Fry says that Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code is a bunch of ass gravy and loose stool water!!! :vlol::vlol::vlol:

This ought to be enough:

I want my learned readers to participate in the scene I am about to replay; I want them to examine its every detail and see for themselves how careful, how chaste, the whole wine-sweet event is if viewed with what my lawyer has called, in a private talk we have had, "impartial sympathy." So let us get started. I have a difficult job before me.

Main character: Humbert the Hummer. Time: Sunday morning in June. Place: sunlit living room. Props: old, candy-striped davenport, magazines, phonograph, Mexican knickknacks (the late Mr. Harold E. Haze--God bless the good man--had engendered my darling at the siesta hour in a blue-washed room, on a honeymoon trip to Vera Cruz, and mementoes, among these Dolores, were all over the place). She wore that day a pretty print dress that I had seen on her once before, ample in the skirt, tight in the bodice, short-sleeved, pink, checkered with darker pink, and, to complete the color scheme, she had painted her lips and was holding in her hollowed hands a beautiful, banal, Eden-red apple. She was not shod, however, for church. And her white Sunday purse lay discarded near the phonograph. My heart beat like a drum as she sat down, cool skirt ballooning, subsiding, on the sofa next to me, and played with her glossy fruit. She tossed it up into the sun-dusted air, and caught it--it made a cupped polished plop. Humbert Humbert intercepted the apple.

"Give it back," - she pleaded, showing the marbled flush of her palms. I produced Delicious. She grasped it and bit into it, and my heart was like snow under thin crimson skin, and with the monkeyish nimbleness that was so typical of that American nymphet, she snatched out of my abstract grip the magazine I had opened (pity no film had recorded the curious pattern, the monogrammic linkage of our simultaneous or overlapping moves). Rapidly, hardly hampered by the disfigured apple she held, Lo flipped violently through the pages in search of something she wished Humbert to see. Found it at last. I faked interest by bringing my head so close that her hair touched my temple and her arm brushed my cheek as she wiped her lips with her wrist. Because of the burnished mist through which I peered at the picture, I was slow in reacting to it, and her bare knees rubbed and knocked impatiently against each other. Dimly there came into view: a surrealist painter relaxing, supine, on a beach, and near him, likewise supine, a plaster replica of the Venus di Milo, half-buried in sand. Picture of the Week, said the legend. I whisked the whole obscene thing away. Next moment, in a sham effort to retrieve it, she was all over me. Caught her by her thin knobby wrist. The magazine escaped to the floor like a flustered fowl. She twisted herself free, recoiled, and lay back in the right-hand corner of the davenport. Then, with perfect simplicity, the impudent child extended her legs across my lap.

By this time I was in a state of excitement bordering on insanity; but I also had the cunning of the insane. Sitting there, on the sofa, I managed to attune, by a series of stealthy movements, my masked lust to her guileless limbs. It was no easy matter to divert the little maiden's attention while I performed the obscure adjustments necessary for the success of the trick. Talking fast, lagging behind my own breath, catching up with it, mimicking a sudden toothache to explain the breaks in my patter--and all the while keeping a maniac's inner eye on my distant golden goal, I cautiously increased the magic friction that was doing away, in an illusional, if not factual, sense, with the physically irremovable, but psychologically very friable texture of the material divide (pajamas and robe) between the weight of two sunburnt legs, resting athwart my lap, and the hidden tumor of an unspeakable passion. Having, in the course of my patter, hit upon something nicely mechanical, I recited, garbling them slightly, the words of a foolish song that was then popular--O my Carmen, my little Carmen, something, something, those something nights, and the stars, and the cars, and the bars, and the barmen; I kept repeating this automatic stuff and holding her under its special spell (spell because of the garbling), and all the while I was mortally afraid that some act of God might interrupt me, might remove the golden load in the sensation of which all my being seemed concentrated, and this anxiety forced me to work, for the first minute or so, more hastily than was consensual with deliberately modulated enjoyment. The stars that sparkled, and the cars that parkled, and the bars, and the barmen, were presently taken over by her; her voice stole and corrected the tune I had been mutilating. She was musical and apple-sweet. Her legs twitched a little as they lay across my live lap; I stroked them; there she lolled in the right-hand corner, almost asprawl, Lola the bobby-soxer, devouring her immemorial fruit, singing through its juice, losing her slipper, rubbing the heel of her slipperless foot in its sloppy anklet, against the pile of old magazines heaped on my left on the sofa--and every movement she made, every shuffle and ripple, helped me to conceal and to improve the secret system of tactile correspondence between beast and beauty--between my gagged, bursting beast and the beauty of her dimpled body in its innocent cotton frock.

Some of my favourite prose ever. He's truly a master. Probably the best there ever was.

^Have you read 'And Then There Were None'? :D

I'm reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

I understand now why people like his writing and why he's a no.1 storyteller. It's not the sense that the story is for kids, it's the way he tells the story, how the protagonist is sympathethic and likeable, how he made the readers marvel at the thought of the chocolate factory and all the delights in it, how he distinguish the good and the bad kids, etc..his writing is a page turner.

This is an excellent piece of writing, can't wait to finish it. :tmb:

1. Eh, why did they cut out that scene?
2. Huh, what is this scene?
3. Why is this so short?
4. Why does it/this person/place not look like in the books?

So, no. I didn't read Half Blood Prince at all, so I enjoyed the movie immensely. Later on I read the book again, and it becomes a great compliment to some of the holes and answered some of the questions raised in the movie.

But Philosopher's Stone was one of the most faithful book-to-film adaptations I've ever seen. If anything, that was one of its shortcomings. Even most of the dialogue was lifted directly from the novel.

I'm reading Prisoner of Azkaban just now, in the hope that I can get up to Deathly Hallows by the time the (first) film is released. It's not going to happen though. :(

That's quite a good approach imo :tmb:

I saw the first 4 films before I'd read any of the books and enjoyed each one more than the last when as each was released. Then I read the first 5 books and I can say I enjoyed the books more, but still enjoy those films.

I knew OOTP would never be compressed effectively into one film but I found I enjoyed it more than the previous films, despite having read the book first.

Half-Blood Prince was the only real disappointment for me. Though I loved the film, it wasn't my favourite but maybe because it was my favourite of all the books.

I'm keeping an open mind for the last 2 films ;)

So whats 'The Centaur' about? Centaurs?


In a small Pennsylvania town in the late 1940s, schoolteacher George Caldwell yearns to find some meaning in his life. Alone with his teenage son for three days in a blizzard, Caldwell sees his son grow and change as he himself begins to lose touch with his life. Interwoven with the myth of Chiron, the noblest centaur, and his own relationship to Prometheus, "The Centaur" is one of John Updike's most brilliant and unusual novels.

Biggest cop-out ending ever; Deus Ex Machina doesn't even begin to cover it. It just negates the point of the entire story, and pretty much undoes all of the work the author does building the plot. I am inclined to pretend it never happened, because if it would have ended differently it would have been a decent book. A brilliant concept, mediocrely executed, but a tear-jerker none the less, which I suppose was the point.

Harry Potter: The Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone, I'm going to read all the book, then watch all the movies to finish it off with the last movie... So I'll be in the Harry Potter mood the couple of month:p

^That's a good way to evaluate & appreciate JK Rowling's work; my personal opinion is the movies weren't very good, but because I read the book first, I had to know how the film turned out :p

Then again, I should take my own advice regarding Chronicles of Narnia. I just watched the 3rd film & I'm reading the book for the first time today :whi:

I've read all but about 75 pages of The Hunger Games, but I can't bring myself to finish it because it's so awful. I have never rolled my eyes so much when reading a book before. This book is actually embarrassing.

Really? I thought it was a great book, then again I hated the first part of the book so maybe you'll like the second half like I did.

Currently reading The Hobbit!

The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides.
A pretty good one. Got a lot of praise, some far too grand for what it is, but nevertheless very compelling and improved greatly by the pretty surprising and powerfull ending. One of those books with very little dialogue that spans a lot of time in relatively few pages. Easy to absorb in a couple of sittings.

Where Angels Fear to Tread by E. M. Forster.
A nice short little one. First Forster I've read, and even though it is particularly well written, was actually fairly boring, even considering its forgiving length. Suppose I'll reserve judgement on him until I've read some of his longer, more achieved books. I suppose that's what you get for actively seeking out something short :p

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.
Was really surprised by this one. I don't know exactly why, but I was expecting it to be pretty generic, but it's one of the most original and unique books I've ever read. Unquestionably compelling, really fun to read and makes you feel quite clever for figuring out the sort of quasi-new language. One of my favourites, now.

The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.
First non-fiction I've read in ages. Pretty much just everything I've ever thought but actually with reasons that I was never knowledgeable enough to provide for myself. I'll never completely understand everything in this book, but it makes me feel like I can reasonably call myself an atheist.

And probably some more between now and my last post that I don't remember. Just always helps me to get my feelings about books down in words, I guess. Sometimes you don't realise exactly what you thought of a book until you sit down and try to churn it out.

A Clockwork Orange is one of the best books I have ever read, as you say it does take a good few pages to get used to the lingo tho.:p



I just finished rereading One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, another brilliant book and pretty different from the film.


Edit: I hate when you do that up arrow thing then it changes page.:hea::D

A Blairwitch style book that is like a journal of a girl who was turned into a werewolf.
It was such an amazing read really felt like I was reading an actual journal, and the artwork was phenomenal.

I started re-reading Dracula for my Literature exam. But I only got up to something like page 76 before the exam though. I really liked it the first time, maybe more could have happened before Dracula gets hit throat slit but generally I felt it was a very well told story that kept me wanting to know what happened next. Obviously though this is all in retrospect since I haven't ever finished it for a second time. I never really feel like re-reading books unless its been a long time since the last read.

1. The Da Vinci Code
2. Angels & Demons
3. The Lost Symbol
5. Digital Fortress (didn't like it :pi: )

Right now I am reading Deception Point, so far it's good, much better than Digital Fortress. :D
