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.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.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.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.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 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

Heres a book Ive already read and plan on reading again, its; "Amazonia" by James Rollins. I give it a thumbup.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.gifthumbup.gif rating.

From the back of the book itself.; "The Rand scientific expedition entered the lush wilderness of the Amazon and never returned. Years later, one of its members has stumbled out of the worlds most inhospitable rainforest-- a former Special Forces soldier, scarred, mutilated, terrified, and mere hours from death, who went in with one arm missing.... and came out with both intact. Unable to comprehend this inexplicable event, the government sends Nathan Rand into this inpenetrable secret world of undreamed-of perils, to follow the trail of his vanished father.... toward mysteries that MUST be solved at any cost. But the nightmare that is awating Nate and his team of scientists and seasoned U.S. Rangers dwarfes any danger they anticipated; an ancient, unspoken terror-- a power beyond human imagining--that can forever alter the world beyond the dark, lethal confines of....Amazonia."

Check the book out for yourself, Im sure you wont be dissapointed.

The Function of the English Verb by Peter Lewis.

A tad overcoked in places but some truly mind-bending observations about the grammar of intransitives.

And in the evenings I'm re-reading Good Omens by Tezza Pratchet and Neil Gaiman.

Spot the difference.
