Re: Currently Reading

Ok I havn't seen the movie or read any books so, why are girls so in love with Twilight? Is it a lot of romance-drama intertwined or something? I kinda got that impression..

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.
The Dexter books are definitely worth reading, but I found myself enjoying the show much more. Masuoka, Batista, Deb, and even Doakes are much better in the show, and make it very funny at times.

IT is a very good book, and you should read the stand at some point either during or after The Dark Tower, as it has many tie-ins. So do several other books of his I'd recommend for completion, including IT, Eyes of the Dragon, the FIRST half of Hearts in Atlantis, Desperation and the Regulators, Salem's Lot, The Talisman, and the Black House (which might be my favorite King Book, aside from book 3 of the dark tower.)

This week I finished book 1 of the Tawny Man Trilogy by Robin Hobb, Fool's Errand, The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett, all of the Dresden Files by Jim Butcher up to Small Favor, and am now re-reading Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

Re: Currently Reading

I'm getting into the Douglas Preston, Lincoln Child books. I read Reliquary and loved it...I really like Aloysius X. L. Pendergast, PhD...And I didn't realise he was part of a series...Yes!

I have Relic right now...going backwards before moving ahead.

And Star Wars: Patterns of the force...the 3rd and final of the Coruscant nights Trilogy.

Oh and I'm also fitting in Expansion and American Indian Policy 1883-1812 by Reginald Horsman
On a side note...if you like star wars at all and even if you just like good writing...Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor by Matthew Stover is Brilliant.

I haven't read any of them myself and don't plan to, but I have a few straight male friends who have read them all. The appeal seems to be that the premise is intriguing and the plots fairly fast-moving. The appeal for teenaged girls may be slightly different, however.

People who don't read much and who have had little exposure to good writing are easily impressed by anything that is easy to read and which has a fast-paced storyline. They pick up these sorts of books in the first place because they hear that they are popular. They are popular because they appeal to these sorts of people, of which there are a great number.

Lucifer by Mike Carey

(Interestingly enough, supposedly Neil Gaiman came up with the whole Lucifer Morningstar concept when writing The Sandman)

I just ordered Tucker Max - I hope they serve beer in hell of Amazon.

It best live up to the hype. Although in all fairness all the hype came from the author himself.
