Haven't read it yet. A friend gave it to me a while back, and it's among a "to be read" pile on my bookshelf. I was hoping you could give me an opinion.

aiight then, I guess whoever reads it first.b

I did read fight club and choke by Phalahunik. Fight Club was fine, Choke, well, I'll say this. It is the most sexually explicit UNerotic book I've ever read. Kinda funny if you have some evil in you.

Survivor is actually pretty funny, but I don't know what to think of Haunted, I'm fairly undecided on how I feel about Phalahunik...

Just finished Bringing Down the House by Ben Mezrich. This is the book the movie 21 is based on and it's a good read.

Am almost finshed with The Ghost Brigades by John Scalzi. Am really enjoying this SciFi series which kicked off with Old Man's War. Highly recommended.

I've got about 50 more books to read through and they are all on my Amazon Kindle. This thing is the greatest invention since the iPod. I have pretty much abandoned the printed book and carry my "library" around with me wherever I go.

Yeah, there are some adult senes in that book. Definitely not something I'd let kids read.

Great set of books though, 'Ruby in the Smoke' is good too

that's awesome rich. Catch 22 was one of my favorites, and I had an old copy from the '70s and it fell apart, and I just recently purchased a new copy. I also like the sequel, "Closing Time"...

I'm reading The Rachel Papers by Martin Amis- Amis has become one of my favorite authors. I have read a few of his books already and really enjoy them.

I am also reading "Seeing" the follow up book to "Blindness" by Jose Saramago- Blindness is a really good book- I would recommend it to others.
The interesting thing about his books also, is he does not use punctuation- intersting and personally I find that it is a quicker read as a result- great book though..hoping "Seeing" is just as good.

THE EAGLES BROOD by Jack Whyte - historical novel about Britain 400AD. Seems realistic. Enjoyed it.
