i just finished "haruki murakami -south of the border, west of the sun"
it was the second time i read it...and i think it's a real good book. i finished the book just a few minutes ago. i read half of it yesterday evening and today i finished reading it. and now..i feel kind of..nostalgic :) i like the feeling when i have just finished a murakami book. a mix of surreal, nostalgic and "i want more" feeling...

i have murakami weeks at home :)

bevore "south of the border.." i've read "hard boiled wonderland and the end of the world" from murakami. it's the most surreal book i've ever read, and i like surreal books.

now i start reading "afterdark" the new novel from murakami.

which books do you guys like?

I want to read "Hard boiled Wonderland" but is hard to find here. =/

The last one I read was "Mona Lisa Overdrive", the third book from the Sprawl Trilogy, by William Gibson. That was a great book. Right, Neuromancer is the best, but after reading all the 3 books they got even better.

Now I don't know if a will read Gibson's Burning Chrome or something from Italo Calvino or Cortázar. Ah, and before Mona lisa I Was reading "So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish", by Douglas Adams. His books are the best. =D

i have finished afterdark now. it's a strange book. you see the whole book from the eyes of a camera....

i think it was entertaining, but the ending is kind of....not there :) i mean for example: there is this main charakter, a girl, eri, who sleeps for 2 month without waking up once. you see her in her "dreamworld" but it is never explanined if she wakes up at the end or not.
it's like the whole story is unfinished.

Finished The Diamond Age by Neil Stephenson. It's a good book, but it starts off slow and a bit confusing. The more you read the harder it is to put down. It's both about nanomachines and childrearing. I won't go into it more than that.

Last book I read was Nemesis by Isaac Asimov. Brilliant writer, that man is.

I just finished Don Quixote. The unabridged version... very long but o' so great.
I just started 1984.
Btw, Blame! vol 4 was released by tokyopop earlier this month.

I just finished Flowers for Algernon. It's about IQ, intelligence and how it relates to humanity and emotion. Good writing but a little weak on plot.

I'm also in the middle of reading Herodotus' Historeia. Much funnier than I would have expected from a great classic.

I love anything by Terry Pratchett and Walter Moers. :-D

@Krypter: I read The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time a while back, and it's pretty similar to Flowers for Algernon.

The Road. Very interesting. I didn't like how there were no quotations but it made me have to think sometimes.

Deception Point and Digital Fortress I had no idea were by the same person. Both were vrey well put together. Now I am reading The Lost Symbol.
