[Good Omens]

Level 69 Camwhore

I'd build a road in gold just to have some dreaming...

Lately I’ve been going through and rereading favorites.

– Martian Chronicles – Ray Bradbury

– Good Omens – Gaiman/Pratchett

– Join Me – Danny Wallace

– American Gods – Gaiman

All are recommended.

Love Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451 (which becomes more and more accurate every damn day). Agatha Christie is like candy. Log in to see images!

Level 35 Camwhore

AAA++++!!! WOULD BUY AGAIN!!!

“De avonden” (The Evenings) by Gerard Reve (one of the clbumics of post-war Dutch literature) and “Lolita” by Vladimir Nabokov are books I regularly re-read. Right now I’m working through “Gödel, Escher, Bach” by Douglas Hofstadter if that counts.

Wher Have My Poor Imaginary Wife and Child Gone

I strongly suggest any of you to read anything by Amy Hempel. She is a wonderful writer. “In the cemetery where Al Jolson is buried” is the saddest thing that I have read.

Need some new stuff to read, MY LIFE HAS NO MEANING IF I’M NOT READING A BOOK. Even if it’s a Dean Koontz one that gets solved in the last 15 pages. Log in to see images! elenaratelimit edited this message on 06/01/2008 10:36AM

Literate Dork

Oddly enough, I’m not reading anything at the moment. But I am trying ot figure out what I want to read next…I have been meaning to go through my boxes and dig out a few I haven’t read in a while. Life of Pi is definitely on that list, as is Good Omens. XD

Hmmmm…last book I finished was a collection of short Daniel Pinkwater stories. Guh, I need to catch up on the Dresden Files, too.

I remember why I stopped reading as much…I tend to not sleep because I want to finish the book I’m on, even if I’ve got 1000+ pages to go. XD

I think it’s written very well, but it’s been a slow read for me. I am enjoying it though!

I want to **** you like an ANIMAL!!!!

I finished Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas a while back. The movie is almost too faithful to the book, after watching the movie the book almost felt like a novelization and not a separate entity.

I mean, that’s sort of the point I guess, but it’s a lot of fun watching a movie like fight club and then reading the book, since the book has a lot of alternate scenes and different plot elements while still making up the same general story.

The best way to describe it is reading a non-fiction book about WW2, then going to the comic rack and finding a comic about an alternate universe WW2 where Hitler rides a ****-off huge mecha-dinosaur that shoots lasers out of its eyes. Actually, that’s a really bad way to describe it, and this is a terrible post. I apologize.

It would have been different if you’d read the book before seeing the movie probably.

The movie does follow the book closely.

Terry Pratchett. Anything is good, really. I particularly enjoyed Going Postal and his collaboration with Neil Gaiman in Good Omens.
