What Are You Reading? November 2006

Another month, another thread.

I just put down Lisey's Story because I just could not get into it at all. I may pick it up at a later date, but for now I'll pass it on to my wife and see if she enjoys it better than I.

Now reading:

I'm really enjoying the new John Hodgman and Michael Connelly books.

I just finished Mapping the Edge (Dunant) and am now on The Good German (Canon). I recently ordered Lisey's Story (King), The Black Dahlia (Ellroy), The Road (McCarthy), Guests of the Ayatollah (Bowden), Freakonomics (Levitt), Sharp Objects (Flynn), Oh What a Slaughter (McMurtry), The Colorado Kid (King) and World War Z (Brooks). Not sure which one I'll be starting on next, but I'll probably get through all of them by the end of the year.

Flyboys, by James Bradley... talks about the navy pilots in ww2, and the overall behavior of Japanese soldiers against U.S. POWs.

Good book so far...

I will say there were a few parts that irritated me. I realize he was trying to be aggressive about his points on atheism, but at times he got a little too self-richeous for my tastes. Still a great book though and does give you a lot to think about.

The Prince. Eh.. To really understand the book you need to understand Renaissance Italy in the 1500's and I don't. It would also help if you knew your Roman emperors as well, which again I don't.

I do have a 15 hour lecture on the subject on audio book and I am learning a lot from that, however I'm not sure if it is worth all the hassle.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera. Fantastic so far.

Still reading...



The Count of Monte Cristo (unabridged) by Alexandre Dumas.

Slow reader + 1500 pages = it'll be a while before I get to another book
