Makes out with her girlfriends, huh? I'm afraid I don't believe you.. I'm going to need to see a few pictures as proof. B-)

The Metroid series is one of my all-time favorites too, by the way.


As soon as I get my scanner I'll PM you a pic. :-b

And yes the story of my life is a pretty good one. :-b

Digital Fortress, by Dan Brown. Good spy stuff about the NSA.

Just finished Douglas Coupland's "Life After God," it was pretty good, not his best though. Also just finished Craig Clevenger's "Dermaphoria" - excellent. I discovered Clevenger (and Will Christopher Baer) through reading Chuck Palahniuk. I really like ALL of these guys, very good alternative voices. Check them out at welcometothevelvet.com.

Next? I've got a stack going, maybe a Hunter S. Thompson book - haven't read "Kingdom of Fear" yet. He's a favorite of mine. RIP, HST.

Peace,

Wow! You have a cool girlfriend. Let me know if she ever becomes single. ;-)

The series is amazing. The first book is kind of dry but if you make it to the second one you'll want to finish the entire series, guaranteed. ;-D

If your girl needs something new to read, tell her to grab Dune. Similar series and length, but more intelligent subject matter.


Tell me about it, she has really good taste(except in men :-b )and occasionaly likes to make out with her girlfriends which is hot. ;-D

I've always wanted to read Dune thanx for the idea I'll be sure to pass it on to her. ;-D


dark tower is a great series - first book IS a little tough, and many are not happy with the ending, but i thought it was an awesome series - if you need a paperback to read, i've probably got extras of most of that series i'll send you for free

Finished "Forever Odd", and you're right josebach it isn't near as good as the first one. I'll be curious how the next one is.

I went ahead and read more Koontz, "Velocity" awesome book if you like suspense/horror.

And now I'm reading "Life Expectancy".

I have just started "Hearts in Atlantis" by Stephen King. I need to catch up on some of his work before go and finish the last of the Dark Tower series.

"Panic" by Jeff Abbott. Pretty good, although not as much action as I'd hoped for, even though it does have quite a bit. I just need alot of action in a book to keep my interest.

Started 1984 by George Orwell a few days ago. Looks to be interesting.

My english class is also starting Mary Shelley's Frankenstein soon...

of the stuff mentioned:

koontz i have a love hate relationship with - like some of his recent stuff, thought odd was very good

i've read all of stephen king's books - the dark tower series, the stand, it, talisman all good

john sanford PREY series is very good detective stuff

if you like that try f. paul wilson, he has a detective series with a supernatural slant

craig clevenger and will christopher baer are some really great writers - call it surreal noir

chuck palahniuk is one of my favorites, just read haunted recently - choke and survivor are awesome, as is fight club

peace,
