I read this a little bit after christmas and thought it was pretty good. Evasion was also one of my favorite books. Almost done Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close.

^^^ Just talked about "The Metamorphosis" in my Nabokov class today. I love Vonnegut, but a word of warning for "Player Piano"-it's not like most of his other works and it'll take a little longer to get through than his other stuff.

Someone posted "Sometimes a Great Notion" by Ken Kesey. That's a good one.

This was alright. All the discussion about UAW's and PAW's got boring.


Read about half of this then stopped, terrible.


Just started this, should be good. I love Stephen King.


I'll start this one soon.

I zipped through Player Piano, I could have read it in a day if I had the time. Definitely my fav Vonnegut book. And I don't think any of his books are like one an other.

Finished Wikinomics and now reading:

It's kinda in journal form.  Once you get past the fact that he seems to have a weird aversion to the word "I" and uses "he" to refer to himself, it's pretty enjoyable stuff.

I never read any Tom Wolfe before but recently read The Painted Word and From Bauhaus to Our House.  They were pretty similar, but I liked em despite the slight smugness he gives off.  I'm thinking I might get The Right Stuff next.

tom Wolfe's fiction is awful.  I am Charlotte Simmons was one of the worst books I have ever read.

Those seem like the kind of books I wouldn't read before bed.

Got this yesterday and can't put it down, so good:

I disagree.
I Am Charlotte Simmons is a great book.
A Man In Full and The Bonfire Of The Vanities are also great works of fiction by Tom Wolfe.
The only non-fiction of his that I have read is The Right Stuff and it was not bad.

I always feel a little hint of sadness amidst the joy when I pick up a new Palahniuk book, because I know I'm going to go through it so fast and then I still want more but there is none. Like I should try and pace myself.

I've been on this one for a few weeks now. It's truly an  enrapturing can't-put-it-down thrill ride.
