I really don't think I could have picked a better book to follow up. If it's good, that is.

American Gods is one of the best novels I've read in a long time, epic good. Anasansi Boys was ok, but I have been very interested in what you've got there. I am reading this:

http://ecimages.kobobooks.com/Image....I0tw&Type=Full

Count of Monte Cristo was the first epic and classic novel I ever read, and I've loved Dumas ever since. However I really haven't been able to read the Muskateer serials, but I have finally given this one a third try and its paying off. Not quite as much as I enjoyed The Hunchback of Notre Dame, but still classic Dumas, sensory overload with engagingly witty dialogue and cinematic narration which predated film by a century!

James Hannon - Lost Boys of the Bronx

I became interested in (more like obsessed with) the Ducky Boys gang through the book/film The Wanderers and couldn't believe someone had actually a written a bio about them. I didn't even realise they were a real gang. I'm only a couple of chapters in and it's already one of my favourite books.

Talks about all the art that is not covered in the "standard" texts about the Middle Ages. Lots of bawdy stuff!

I have been stopping and starting books for months and nothing's grabbed me by the balls yet. The few I have finished had zero impact.

I'd better find some existentially challenging fiction pretty goddamn quick or I think my soul is going to disappear.

I'm almost in "re-read Lord of the Rings" mode. That's how bad it is.

Shit I hate being in between books. I usually read two or three every couple weeks. It's my solace. But I'm coming up with fuckin nothing!

someone recommended it to me recently. it's hilarious. also very good.

also looking again at this:



 


it's a bit "old" (2003!) but it was game changer i think. actually i think it informs the one above.

WATCH YOU BLEED by Stephen Davis (it's the GNR book)
please excuse my bad taste, but it was only $5 for a hardcover
and after reading Stephen Adler's autobiography last fall
i thought that this would be a good one as well
not like i give a fuck about GNR anymore

I too have been looting the free selection on Kindle. I've also been "sampling" books and had myself a nice little surprise when I realized that if you accidentally buy the book when trying to sample it, and then cancel the order, the thing will be in your carousel until you close it out. Yeah, that means reading a book in full in one sitting; of just leaving your kindle on and not doing any of the amazing other things it does (bullshit) but I don't mind for free books.

Anyway, the actually free books have given me A Tale of Two Cities to go over again, which I'm doing in small chunks, and Moby Dick.

I know- not supposed to read it until you're 40. Well, I fuckin feel forty, and I'll be forty sooner than I'd like to believe. So fuck it. Great goddamn book, so far.
