In English we're starting to read The Odessey. This is going to suck so much!


i thought the same thing when i started reading it.

Trust me, it's AWESOME.

it's one of the most action packed stories i've ever read. It goes all over the world and if you have any interest in mythology, or even thought Zeus sounds like a cool dude, trust me, you'll love it.

It's awesome. awesome tounge2

The Odessey? In ENGLISH?! eh
We studied it two years ago in my ancient greek class
It's cool i guess... except things change when you have to write an exam on it.
Now im reading the devil wears prada (heard the book's better than the film so wanted to check it out) and The Secret but i guess that's not exactly a book. ^^

that has to be one of my favorite poems ever. First off, it's just plain cool. Secondly, it's long, not to mention epic.

I liked a lot of poems by Coleridge but personally i think i liked Woodsworth better wink5

Lord of the rings 2- just finished 1 and afterwards will read 3. They are the coolness as books they're better than their films I think.


Current LD goal(s): One more.

painocus:Thankyou painocus, I think you made me read the john ajvide lindqvist books ^^

Bought "I, Robot" by Isaac Asimov, and finished reading it today(It was my third time reading it) and it's nothing like the movie wink the only thing they have in common might be some names and the laws but nothing else.
I, Robot is a collections of short storys about robot. Very fun to read.

Bought "Darkly Devoted Dexter" Today I've seen the first season and read the first book, many thinks the tv-series is better than the book, but I think the ending in the book is better than the ending in the series(that doesn't mean the series has a bad ending just that the book has a better ending)

Atm I'm finishing "Wind-Up Bird Chronicle", by Haruki Murakami. Pretty unusual story and guess what - dreams are very important part of it smile

I've finally gotten around to carry on reading The Wheel of Time series, I'm almost done with book 6 now. Unfortunately the writer of the books, Robert Jordan, passed away a few days ago, leaving the last book of the series unfinished cry.Luckily he left behind plot outlines and such so hopefully the book will still be published, but it's just not the same sadblauw. R.I.P. Robert Jordan


REALLY..... sniffle sniffle cry . That's really to bad, wow. I read From the Two Rivers three years ago". Then I read The Eye of the World last year. Then I just borrowed The Great Hunt and I have only finished the prolouge. I also just joined The Wheel of Time Mud (multi-user-dimension). And he was still writing?!? I thought the series was like 15 years old. That is sad, what did he die from? By the way no spoilers please!

Yes, the Ghibli film is loosely based on the third book "The Farthest Shore ", takes elements from the first book "A Wizard from Earthsea" and two characters from the forth book "Tehanu".

But the books are far superior to the movie IMO grin

Finished If on a Winter's Night a Traveler . Props to Bruno for recommending it, it was awesome. Best closure ever.

Started reading a long graphic novel (fancy word for comic book tounge2) called Bone , about 1000 pages or so long. Also reserved The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand and Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut.
