What are you reading? Part 35 (May 05)

I'm still going through "The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe" by Douglas Adams.

I nearly bought that the other day. Is it any good?


As for me, I'm about 1/4 through The Dark Tower. I loved this series, but I'm excited to be nearly done with it.

Hard to say so far. I'm only about 100 pages in, but so far it's pretty good. It's kinda funny in places with him talking about how little "Bobby" Weir was still in high school when the band formed, and how his mom talked to Jerry about how she wouldn't let "Bobby" come to practice if it made his schoolwork suffer.
It's starting to pick up right now, now that he's talking about the acid tests.

Just finished:

Skinny Legs And All by Tom Robbins -- I've been on quite a Robbins kick lately. Amazing work.



Just started:

Tishomingo Blues by Elmore Leonard -- So far so good. I'm also quite fond of Leonard's work.

Just finished "Life of Pi" by Yann Martel.A great novel about a boy(Pi) growing up as the son of a zookeeper in India who attempts to travel by ship to Canada with his family and with several animals,only the ship sinks.The story of what happened or may have happened is told to us by Pi himself as he survives on a lifeboat with Richard Parker,a 450 pound bengal tiger.Loved it
