Right now I'm just starting to read The Andromeda Strain by Michael Chricton. I really like his books.

Recently I just finished "I Am Legend" by Richard Matheson. Great book, especially if you like vampires or apocalyptic style settings. It's this book that inspired the movie "The Omega Man" . I give it  thumbup.gif  thumbup.gif  thumbup.gif  thumbup.gif  thumbup.gif

Speaking of which, 5 double thumbs are the highest score and 0 is the lowest. Also single thumbs represent half of a double thumb. So a score of  thumbsup.gif means it is'nt worth a thumbup.gif , but yet isn't a 0.

Another good book I read recently is "The Rising" by Brian Keene. Really good book and it adds a major twist to zombies. I won't tell you what the twist is because it sorta is key to the story. It's very easy to get into the characters of this book and I found myself even trying to think of what actors would be good to play them in a movie. So if you like horror, or zombies this is a must. thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif thumbup.gif

I'm reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelly. In our school we have to read from a selection of books, so I figured I should catch up on classic literature seeing that there's no good books...

For an English ISU I am reading a 420 page book of the Last of the Mohicans. Its a bit hard to read, and understand in some parts. It was a good movie though.

I dwell not in the city to become a worthless idler,
I plunge me in the forest to be eaten by the Mngwa!
Terrors of the night, I pray you send hither,
The great gray shape that makes men shiver.

I am a werewolf, and when I killed them, I had no control over my actions. - Cummings

I am reading "the Namesake" by Jhumpa Lahiri.

Recently finished "Druids" by Morgan Llywelyn. It's about the life of a celtic boy named Ainvar who becomes the chief druid in Gaul and about Vercingetorix one of the celt chiefs who attempts to unify the Celts agains the Roman invasion. It is a good book, I give it four out of five.

I was reading Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series a couple of years ago...I gave up when I started Uni, and lost my place, so I just went back to the beginning. Right now I'm reading the first book "The Eye of the World". The first time I read this, I did it inside a week (which is pretty impressive, given it's a huuuuge book), and could barely put it down...easily one of the best books I've read. The series slipped a little afterwards though. It remained great, but never quite as good as that first outing.

Still, Eye of The World definately gets a
