Seconded on about Sun Also Rises. It's the only Hemingway I've read but damn it was good.

On the other hand, I read most of On The Road, found it kind of boring really. Though, I did try to read it when I was 14 or something. Maybe I'd appreciate it more now.

My interest in George R. R. Martin's work was piqued after seeing season one of Game of Thrones, so I hired from the library A Dance with Dragons parts one and two.

But that's the fifth book. If anything you should read Clash of Kings.

I suppose it's now more of a cultural artefact than a purely literary one. I imagine it must've been amazing coming across a book like that in the 50s but I'm not sure if it still really has much to offer, besides as a peek into what increasingly seems like a quite innocent age. And I suppose on that level at least, it still has some charm, even if it's the kind of charm that completely contradicts what I imagine was Kerouac's original intention.

Nothing, as of yesterday morning, when I finished the greatest book (series, really) ever written.

I always (ALWAYS) have a book to read. I'm kind of going crazy without one.

I've heard a lot of people reference this as a favorite but I've never gotten around to reading it. I'd be interested to know what you think of it.

Okay, so i just finished it. it was really amazing. i will admit that it gets a little bit slow for over 100 pages in the middle of the 300 page book. but the first 50 and last 150 are well worth it. even the "slow" part is interesting. much more a book of ideas (anarchism\collectivism\mutual aid versus capitalism\militarism\property ownership etc) than actions but it is all done in a really unique and beautiful way. it is a complex book that doesn't show anything to be black and white, and i think because of that there is a lot of hope in it.

in any case, i really liked it.

All the other books were out. So I had no choice, really.

That so depressing considering how much you're going to spoil for yourself.

It sounds a bit fucked up, I know, but when the other books in the series are eventually returned, I'll still read them and no doubt thoroughly enjoy them as much as I'm enjoying A Dance with Dragons.

It's good that you're enjoying it. Dance is one of the lesser ones really, though still a cut above. A Storm of Swords is easily the best one I think.

Just finished this badass piece of work. Started kinda slow going into the Rushdie affair on which i was already well versed. But the stuff on rich cunts paying for censorship and intimidating citizen journalists was indespensibly righteous.

 


We lost Hitchens, but we've still got Nick Cohen to stand up for the principle of a proper fucking arguement. Fuck the censors and the libel lawyers

Totally agree with you on Cohen. I'm a huge fan. More even than I ever was of Hitchens. Can't wait to read this one.

Hitchens changed my way of thinking, Cohen made me relate to how I was before, and why I was wrong. Reading Hitchens fills me with joy and self belief, reading Cohen's words is like being fitted with a suit of armour against the kind of fascist scumbags we all detest.

So yeah, you need to get this book
