    ...or, read the book and then don't bother watching the film because the book didn't really seem all that. Jussayin.

    I totally understand why people love that style but it just doesn't float my boat!

    Question: Is the Le Carre series on George Smiley worth reading?

    That book gives me the weirdest boner.

    Stephen King gets bashed a lot for 'cheap' writing, but the characterization and imagery in that book were so vivid and believable that I can still clearly remember the characters, several years after only reading it once.

    I was then bored by several of his smaller novels, until I hit The Stand, which blew me away again for the same reasons - huge scope, unforgettable characters, iconic imagery.

    Is that The Sicilian? Just started it after finishing The Godfather last night.

    Really enjoyed it. Kind of wish I hadn't seen the films first...the book is really good.

    Blindsighted by Karin Slaughter discovered through Goodreads which is an amazing website. I'd never even heard of Karin Slaughter before but I'm now about 75% through the 2nd of her books :thumb: Highly recommended

    The Seven Days of Peter Crumb.



    American Psycho meets Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde. To be honest its as fascinating and well written and compelling as it is repulsive. It really is rather strong.

    That being said it's quite short so I'll reserve judgement until I finish it but I think theres going to be a few stomach churning sequences along the way.

    Not having read it before, I found it creepy, but what was even weirder was seeing references to It in some of the recent web articles I've read (There was one on Kotaku about Lego minifigs faces ending with a comment about Georgie's boat) and another with a picture of a clown minifig with a "They all float down here" quote in the comments). :eeek:

    Finished It and also Jim Butcher's Death Masks and have started re-reading Eragon.

    I'll have to see if I can find a copy of The Stand.
