I'm reading up a storm...
John Belushi... WIRED
If you got the time, the series that Game of Thrones is based on. A Song of Ice and Fire.
A Confederacy of Dunces
"Quivers: No Life"
Oh My Dog
*you had to know this was coming...
How is it?
If you like horror, Let the Right One In. Very dark, but really good read.
I second this. I just finished the 4th book in the series, and they've all been page-turners for the most part. The few lulls in the story don't last long, and there are enough "didn't see that coming!"s to keep you on your toes.
But on the other hand, the story is almost too big. There are characters who disappear for an entire book, which I find slightly annoying.
My wife just finished Stephen King's "Lisey's Story" and really enjoyed it, although reviews on it are extremely mixed.
David Lynch's "Catching the Big Fish" is a must-read if you enjoy his films, and a must-avoid if you don't.
Keith Richard's "Life" is full of great stories.
"Monkey", an old Chinese mystical fable, is really cool.
Woody Allen's collections of short stories are funny in a silly way. They've actually combined them all into one book called "Complete Prose".
"under the dome" stephen king..I just read the "audio" like baboonlips did..great.
Pretty much anything by Charles Bukowski if you haven't read him before. Fear and Loathing by HST is also a good one if you haven't already read it.
Crime and Punishment .....nice easy going Russian Novel
soon 2 b a Hollywood movie!!
It is indeed a commitment, but worth it IMO.
I love old school Stephen King. I reread "The Skeleton Crew" a while ago, lots of good ones in there.
Cool, I will check that out. I've never read it, but a collection of good short stories is always nice to have around.
I just read "Misery" and "The Shining", both for the first time, then tried to watch "The Shining" and couldn't. What a piece of shit that is compared to the book!
King's "On Writing" is fantastic, too. It's half autobiographical, half tips on writing, ranging from nuts and bolts stuff to more philosophical things.
He wrote "Misery" with the help/hindrance of a steady stream of booze and coke, stuffing tissues in his nostrils to control the bleeding while continuing to type away.
He doesn't mention this in the book but I think the Annie Wilkes character is based on his wife.
I hear it comes highly recommended
The remake, or the original? I saw the original before I read the book. To me it's a really creepy Kubrick film, not really the book. They really don't make good adaptations of his best stuff. Silver Bullet, Salem's Lot, Cujo, and Firestarter are OK for what they are, but not great. I read Pet Cemetary and loved it. Saw the movie, fucking thing sucked!
