I'm reading THE IGNORED by Bentley Little, my first time with this one. So far I'm loving it.

What are you reading?

Obsession by Debra Webb, a mystery/thriller I won on Goodreads. Mystery/suspense thrillers have a superficial feel to them, kinda like Koontz; I have a difficult time with them.

Thrillers have to be really innovative and original for me to bother with them much, though I do like a good crime noir here and there. When an author can incorporate the supernatural into them, that's even better (Jim Butcher, John Connolly, etc...)

That's one of my favorite series ever. I envy you your first exposure to it. They only get better from there. (DARK HOLLOW, THE KILLING KIND, and THE WHITE ROAD are very, very good indeed.)

I'm going to busy with Bentley Little books for a while (for a project I'm working on), but if I wasn't, NOS4A2 would be my current read. I'm a big fan of Joe's work.

Well they are all short story anthologies and novellas. So read a few move to the next for a few. If I am reading a novel I will focus on that till I am through.

Fangtooth by Shaun Jeffrey. Never read anything from him before, but am enjoying this one. Got it when Dark Regions had their big Sale For Good event recently. Surprised that my PB copy was one of the signed ones since it has been on sale for so long. Must not be a big seller, but not sure why.

Will either be reading Gifune's House of Rain or Meikle's Clockwork Dolls.

Also reading A Taste of You by Angela Meadon for free in return for a review.

Finished a A Taste of You, which was a good novella. Still reading Fangtooth, which is going well enough that I went ahead and purchase The Kult and The Mutilation Machination since they were both just $0.99 for my Kindle.

Even though I haven't finished Fangtooth yet, I will be starting Exit Reality by Robert S. Wilson later today or tomorrow now that I have finally gotten it. It is a short novella, so it shouldn't take very long to read and then I can get to the newest Gifune book.

Next Tuesday I should be getting And The Mountains Echoed, the newest book from Khaled Hosseini. Absolutely loved his previous works, especially The Kite Runner, and am very much looking forward to reading this. Have to be sure I am in the right mood for it, as his works can absolutely deliver an emotional punch to the gut. I made the mistake of reading his 2 books back to back, so I was too drained emotionally from Kite Runner for A Thousand Splendid Suns to have quite the same impact emotionally as I am sure it would have had if I'd spaced the books out. Not sure if I will read his newest right away or maybe save it for when I go up to the cabin on vacation at the end of July.

Hosseini is an author I've heard nothing but good things about, but just haven't gotten around to reading yet. Will have to amend that one of these days if my TBR pile of 400+ books doesn't topple over and kill me first.

This was the book that started my burned out phase on King's work. I followed that one with ROSE MADDER which I liked up until the ending. He wouldn't win me back again until DUMA KEY.

I've been rereading Misery, first time since its release. I've watched the movie several times and have always liked it but I thought I'd be disappointed with the book but have found it very engaging. Though I like most of King's works, I better like those that are focused on a few people rather large groups, I seem to care more about what happens to them.

I'd agree with you for the most part. I also seem to prefer his smaller canvases, though there are exceptions: Under the Dome being one of them.

I liked Under the Dome until the end, then it just fizzled for me. Otherwise, I did enjoy it, especially Big Jim. It's not often that I loathe someone so much, especially someone who isn't even real. :)

Yeah, he was a great (if despicable) character. King did a great job bringing him to ugly life. I'm equally excited that in the upcoming miniseries, the role of Big Jim is being played by Hank from BREAKING BAD (Dean Norris), which I consider perfect casting.

I am unsure of Insomnia - sounds like a good story, but I've heard many mixed reviews..... Yet Duma Key found it's way into my hands at my local store a few times, but I always put it back down for some reason.

My TBR pile is pretty big for my standards, and growing. Plus my Kobo books keep increasing too. I just finished The Teratologist, which was "weird" - see my quick review on the main "what are you currently reading" thread.

I started Blue November Storms on my lunch break, and should finish it tonight. Quick pace, short chapters, great flow.

I too find it hard to do more than once book at a time.

Highly, highly, highly recommend The Kite Runner, as it is my favorite of his two, probably because the main character of that one is male, where the main of Splendid Suns is female. Some of the early reviews for the new one are saying it is as good or better than Kite Runner, so I am very much looking forward to reading it. The Kite Runner was so good at getting me invested in it that at one point I was prepared to stop reading it the story went a certain way. It was late, I was tired, and had to work early in the morning but I absolutely couldn't stop reading until I knew what happened. I had never before (and never since either) been so emotionally invested in story that I was ready to stop reading the book if one part went the way I was afraid it would go! It's no wonder I was too drained for Splendid Suns to effect me in anything close to the same effect when I read it right after Kite Runner. I would recommend both books, Kite Runner more than Splendid Suns, but would recommend reading a book or two in between them and not making the same mistake that I did.

I'd say you could use the book for research, but I don't know what you'd be researching, lol.

I used to admire Koontz back when I wrote for THE HORROR SHOW--god knows he was nice and generous to me. You really ought to check out DONALD RAY POLLOCK's hillbilly noir: KNOCKEMSTIFF. It'll do stuff to you. Like WINTER'S BONE without the glitter.

While I'm a bigger fan of Koontz's earlier stuff than his later efforts, I will agree with you that the man is easily one of the nicest guys in the genre. A true gentleman, and more accessible to his fans than expected given his status.

That is one of the things that is keeping me away from opening up Under the Dome, and even It - is the length. It would take me a long time to get through a book that big. Saying that.....today in the mail arrived Anathem by Neal Stephenson...... another huge novel!!!! But, one I am looking forward to.

Under the Dome is pretty fast paced and I got through it pretty quickly. Haven't read IT since it was released so I can't remember the pacing. Sometimes I find that reading a shorter book takes longer if I find it's not very interesting.

The only problem is....it's gonna take me a while to get through Anathem - could stop a train with it!!!! It's a big one. I don't know if I will tackle that first, or try Embassytown or Hyperion (Mieville - Simmons) first. I have a feeling if I do Hyperion, I will want to follow it up with the next one in that series. But, I also hear that it can be a hard read.

srboone
05-31-2013, 02:08 PM
Embassytown will be a tough read, also. The first 40-50 pages will be challenging as you get used to the structure of his book and his writing style. But it's worth it.

The Road is a perfect book and the first I read from McCarthy as well. It would also be in my top ten if not for Blood Meridian. Roger Ebert was a big fan of McCarthy's and always said that Suttree (his funniest book by far) was his Masterpiece. It's hard to choose from those three which I like the best but I always go with Blood Meridian because The Judge is one of the most frightening creations I've ever come across in modern literature. I still need to read the Border Trilogy but I put it off because of how sad it will be once I have read everything by him and have to wait for his new one. Silly of me, I know.

Child of God can be read in one sitting but it will leave you thoroughly freaked out, it is McCarthy's loose take on Ed Gein, The Outer Dark is another good one about a brother and sister who have a baby together and well....you can imagine what McCarthy can do with that situation. Suttree takes a while to read because it is his longest work and the way it's written is reminiscent of Ulysses, I actually could do with a reread of Suttree myself, sorry to babble but I absolutely love McCarthy!

Pretty sure I have a copy of this on one of my bookcases, may have to bring it with me on vacation. Lots of books demanding my attention though, lol. Still not sure if I will bring the new Khaled Hosseini book with me not. Leaning towards not bringing it though as I would rather read that book in private so I get more into it. Likely would be more guarded towards getting emotionally invested in a book with others around me.

Don't let my comparison of Suttree to Ulysses stop you from reading it because it is well worth the read, I found Ulysses to be the most difficult book I've ever read but I did like it, Suttree is complex, beautifully written and nowhere near as difficult to read. The comparison comes from the epic sprawl of the story and how it is written in different, somewhat disorienting vignettes where sometimes you aren't entirely sure what's happening And yes, Child of God is right up your alley Mr. Burke :cool:

He would not have been right for that adaptation at all. I'm glad it fell through. Less glad that Tommy Lee Jones' attempts to bring it to the screen were unsuccessful. He might have been able to do it right, though after seeing No Country for Old Men, I'd like to see what the Coen Brothers could do with the material, as they seem to get McCarthy's tone.

No, but I want to, I'm sure it's good just haven't got around to it yet

It's a hard one to recommend, and your enjoyment of it will be directly proportional to how well you like one-location, all dialogue plays about philosophy and theology. It's pretty much two actors representing McCarthy's own internal debate about religion. I enjoyed it, but then, from a writer's perspective, the themes and dialogue engaged me. Not sure if it'd be the case if I weren't. I know the reviews were decidedly mixed, and I can see why.

Definitely have to agree with that. It took a little getting used to with the writing style, but once I got used to it I couldn't put it down. Absolutely great book. I was impressed with the movie too, as I was expecting something bad, but it was made more in line with the book than most movies made from books by authors such as Stephen King

I was a little nervous about the movie initially as the first previews made it seem like it would deviate from the book, but subsequent previews made me decide to watch it (which I would have done anyway, much like anything based on King's work even though they rarely measure up, lol) and was pleasantly surprised.

Yes it was, and that is good. Don't know if I would have enjoyed it otherwise.

Loved the open-ended conclusion as well. That one and Children of Men have some of my favorite endings, particularly Children of Men. They both end with at least a semblance of hope, but what would happen if those hopes were dashed? How would those characters react then? Love when these kind of movies have endings the viewers have to use their imaginations about to decide when happens next. I know some people hate the ending of Children of Men because it is not a clearly defined conclusion. I think it is silly to hate having to use your imaginations, but then again some people don't have imaginations. Heck I knew someone who didn't like V for Vendetta because there were too many words or too much talking. He wasn't a very bright guy though, lol.

No Country For Old Men (What happened to the wife? That part is not actually shown like pretty much everything else is in the movie. though it is easy to come to certain assumptions) falls into that open ended conclusions thing too, but not as much as those other 2 for me.

That's why it doesn't fall into the open ended conclusion as much as those other movies. I agree with your conclusion, but I have known some people who would hope for the opposite. What ends up happening to Bardem's character is open ended as well, but knowing the character I can make some assumptions.

I think Children of Men's ending is my favorite. If you haven't seen that movie I would recommend it.

I just finished re-reading "V for Vendetta". While reading the notes about the creation of the series, I got one of those "Yes, I see now that you mention it" moments. Moore pointed out that they took great trouble to let the art do the talking in V. He almost completely did away with narration and thought balloons. Everything was told through the art and dialogue. That's quite a rare feat, and I should have noticed it, because the internal thought expositions and narration were some of my favorite parts of "Swamp Thing".

Agreed. I think the ending was not to my liking, but I did like the movie (although I never read the book). I do enjoy most King movies.

Reading Robert McCammon' s They Thirst. Really good. At home I read from the signed limited and at work and when I am out from the e-book. Also started The Twilight Zone Scripts. Reading Earl Hamner' s scripts watching the episodes after I have read them. Next will be the Twilight Zone scripts of Richard Matheson. Will do the same. As I said on Facebook earlier the only down side to this is Netflix doesn't have season 4 the season of all hour long shows. Don't know why that is.

I loved the TZ series, but I think it really suffered when it went to the 1 hour format when it had to fill in for another show. It seemed like they would repeat parts of the story with different people as other examples of the "weirdness" going on. Too much repetition. I loved the other seasons.

Funny you say that. That was one of the things that has come up several times while reading the Earl Hamner scripts. He talks about that in the I interview that is done with him and it is brought up by the co author in the summaries. This is a fascinating book and I am looking g forward to reading the Matheson scripts and 're- watching those. I am curious to see how many episodes Matheson did that were an hour if any. Hamner only did one.

Every Dead Thing John Connolly. Really enjoying it!

Oh dude you are in for a treat. Say, this is not your first Connolly, is it ? If so, if memory serves you are going about the series right proper like by starting
with the first.

I am revisiting Brant in the Ken Bruen series. I started with THE GUARDS, a Jack Taylor, still as mind blowing to me as the first time I read that sucker.

So I decided to slum it with Brant. Wish Solow did not ask for THE WHITE TRILOGY back after giving it to me but in all honesty, it was me who said Dave,
you know how much this book is worth you stupid stupid man ? Indian give this back ! I won't tell anyone...plus I am glad you want it back...motherfucker !

...oops ! :)
