Since the old thread disappeared I figured I'd start a new one.

Titus Groan. Stunning language, a thrilling story that reads like a Nolanized Dark Shadows.

Rabbit, Run by John Updike and Brighton Rock by Graham Greene

Both are wonderful books with extremely well developed characters and fascinating existential themes.

Why did this happen again? Anyway,

The War for Late Night: When Leno Went Early and Television Went Crazy by Bill Carter.

NYT media editor who wrote The Late Shift. An excellent read that gets you into the world network politics in an interesting way.

I just finished the second book of the Spiderwick Chronicles - The Seeing Stone. Very interesting but I don't think my 6 year old is ready for it yet.

Das Parfum by Patrick Süskind, in a Dutch translation. A very gripping tale, well written and very original but ultimately not very moving because of a lack of sympathy for anyone in the story and it is all rather one-note. Enjoyed it though.

The Twilight Herald, Book Two of the Twilight Reign by Tom Lloyd. The first book was a bit of an epic sword-n-sorcery tale. This one turned into Grimdark Fuel midway through. There was a fantasy setting, but much of it revolved around a city where the an enchantment had driven the citizens to the point of barely restained madness. After a few theatre performances ending in teh bloody execution of criminals, then priests, then any hapless old joe, the **** really hit the fan.

Its a nice dark fantasy series I think.
