Finished it last night.
Cried like a baby! Brilliantly unusual.

Just started Cloud Atlas (David Mitchell) - I have high hopes for it.

"Shalimar the Clown" by Salman Rushdie. Fantastic in every sense of the word.

been reading...

Life of Pi - Yann Martel - really enjoyed it and still thinking about it.

Edna O'Brien's Country Girls trilogy (last book is just devastatingly sad :: Great character writing.

On the Road - Jack Kerouac - first time - great read! the movie is in the works...

Kate Atkinson - Emotionally Weird (took me a while to get into it - liked it)

The Cheese Monkeys- A Novel in Two Semesters by Chip Kidd - LOVED this. (It got a great review by The Onion - what more can I say?)

Things My Girlfriend and I Have Argued About

Mil Millington

Being fiction I hold no expectations other than it may be redeemed by being loosely based on real life. Or a web-site. Or something.

Reading my Drivers ED manual and Artemis Fowl The Eternity Cube or something like that. I hate the Artemis Fowl book, it sucks horribly. It doesn't make any sense of what it talks about and omg don't read it. Only people who really know technology will see the irony hugely in this book.
