Re: Currently Reading

I'm finishing up Jeff Lindsay's Dexter series. The books are even funnier than Showtime's adaptation of the first novel (the books and the series diverge after Darkly Dreaming Dexter and the first season of the Showtime TV series as the writers have moved in a slightly different direction than Lindsay has). Dexter Morgan is wickedly funny, a sort of Jeeves for the 21st century.

The Dexter books are damn good. Even though the first book is what the first season is based on (I started reading the series after season one ended), there are enough stark differences in the book that still make it worth reading. A lot of people don't like the third book, Dexter in the Dark, I liked it, though not as much as the first two. It's a lot different from what you would expect from a Dexter book, but I thought that if you can expect how, well...weird the story was for a Dexter book, then it was still enjoyable none the less. Don't forget the next book, Dexter by Design, comes out in February.

On a different note, I'm reading Stephen King's Dark Tower series. I just finished the Gunslinger and have about 100 pages left in the The Drawing of the Three. Needless to say, I'm completely hooked. I can't imagine where the next five books take me. I decided to read the Dark Tower series after reading King's IT (which I now believe to be the best book I've ever read) and, while debating whether to read The Stand or start the Dark Tower series, I opted for the DT.

I'm pretty pissed at Cassidy right now because that's a ***** made stunt that he pulled, but now I actually have to go and get the last two trades. Reason I had the first seven is because I found them on ebay for under $40. It was well worth it.

My major complaint though? Steve Dillon's characters (particularly females) tend to look alike and that doesn't usually bother me but it's just that he makes them look a certain way that stands out.

Oh.. and Saint of Killers is bad ***.

Also just read Scott Pilgrim Gets it Together. It wasn't as funny as some of the earlier stuff but it had it's fair share of high spots. Sad that there's only one book left, but I'm sure it'll be great.

Just finished Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time. This was an interesting read, though I found it hard to conceptualize a lot of the things he was talking about.

I read this book awhile back and I agree with your assessment. If you want to check out a book by him thats a lot easier to conceptualize and understand try The Universe in a Nutshell. It has pictures and graphs etc...

Maybe I'll have to try that. I'd definitely like to get a better idea of what Hawking was talking about in his discussions of imaginary time, self-contained space-time, string theory, and all that.

Re: Currently Reading

I am about to finish Masks by Aaron Rintoul. This is really one weird book. Every page reads like a poem and the art work is kinda funky, almost photo realistic. As for the story, thats also weird too. Some woman who is searching for herself, but seems to take on the character of whatever mask she puts on.

Yep. As hard as I tried to pretend I got it all, I couldnt grasp the enormity of a lot of what was in there.

Re: Currently Reading

I am reading Vampyre by John Polidori and this is going to be a long read. It was written ages ago, and the language is vexing.
