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.

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.
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 )and occasionaly likes to make out with her girlfriends which is hot.
I've always wanted to read Dune thanx for the idea I'll be sure to pass it on to her.
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
