Has anyone read any of the Culture novels by Iain M. Banks? Or Magician by Raymond E. Feist?

I plan to start one of them soon, but I have no clue which.

Short read: Paulo Coehlo's The Alchemist. It's kind of hokey, but there's something there for everyone.

I'm reading Jon Green's Fault In Our Stars. Good so far, can't put it down. Kind of depressing.

Anything by David Mitchell.

And if you're into books-being-made-into-films, try Perks of Being a Wallflower or Life of Pi.Both are upcoming films and both look to be fantastic.

I've heard the Alchemist is good, I have that somewhere in my house, I'll probably do that one first.

I actually ordered that one yesterday on an impulse xD Good to know it wasn't a mistake.

Thanks xD

Downloaded samples for two books off of the iBooks store and it appears to have given me the entire book for free. Weird.

Anybody read the new Chabon novel yet? I picked it up on a whim yesterday. I've only read Kavaleir & Clay - I didn't love that one as much as some people but I thought the writing was great so I figured I'd give this new one a shot.

George Takei has a new book coming out titled "Oh Myyy!" and it's about the internet. Absolutely picking that up. Even if it sucks, the cover is just his head saying "Oh myyyy." Worth 10 dollars.

Has anyone read any of Nick Hornby's novels? He is definitely becoming one of my favorite authors. Even Slam, which is geared more towards young adults is quite good.

Tolstoy. Yes. I was born in Ukraine and my mom used to read me his work and even then, when I was little, it was awesome. I haven't read it in English but I imagine that it's just about as good.

She also used to read me Chekhov, if you've ever heard of him. He's so good as well.

I haven't read his plays (I hear great things about them) but his short stories are some of the best ever written. I love Russian lit, I have an entire shelf on my bookshelf dedicated to it.

That's awesome haha I only have a couple books with his short stories and I haven't read them in years, but this thread is inspiring me to. Older Russian literature is some of the best in the world.

I just finished up reading American Psycho which I found to be fantastic, such an interesting read. I suggest anyone even remotley interested in serial killers and the like to give it a go, you may have to skip past alot of the gorey scenes if you have a weak stomach though.
