    The Bottoms. The Big Blow. And while I haven't read enough of them to really recommend them, people seem to love his Hap & Leonard novels.

    I just finished Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Superb. Now 40 pages into House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski.

    I have heard lots of stuff about that one -from being weird, different, and mostly disturbing. It is on my to be read list. I'm curious as to your thoughts on it.

    I loved the first half of DREAMCATCHER. The second half...not so much.

    It's an odd one, that's for sure, but so far, the oddness of it ties in nicely with the story. We'll see...

    I actually enjoyed the movie quite a bit - haven't read the book though.

    I hated the movie, which is why I'm afraid to pick up the book. Well, maybe hate is too strong a word, but I just couldn't get into it really...

    Although there hasn't been a King book I haven't liked so... And lets be honest, not many King movies have done the books justice.

    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. It seems I have this thing where I saw the movie and either haven't read, or can't remember much of the book, or read the book and not seen it's movie (or don't remember much about it either).

    Good. About 300 pages in. Would probably be finished if not for a week of illness in which high fever made sleep about the only activity worth engaging. But I'm still enjoying it!

    Sorry to hear that you are not well, I haven't read that book but from everything I've heard a fever might actually go along with it fairly well, anyway, feel better soon!

    Yeah, it might have helped, but I didn't want to risk sliding into yet another dimension!

    Thanks for the good wishes. I'm pretty much back to speed now (I think.)
