Funding to film Chuck Palahniuk's Haunted finally came through. No word yet on who will star or when the film will be released.

"In 2008, Koen Mortier (Ex-Drummer) was set to write and direct the adaptation, and now, five years later, financing for the film has been secured."

Always heard that was one of his best novels. I'll try to pick it up before the film hits theatres.

In other notes: been reading a lot of Shakespeare recently. I forgot how much I enjoyed his plays, even if they take a second or two to adjust to. My "light" reading is Grisham's Runaway Jury which I'm slowing getting through.

Just finished Margaret Atwood's Surfacing. Not bad, a little anticlimactic though. Next week is Hemingway's In Our Time. I'm gonna try to put a dent in A People's History of the United States somewhere in there too.

Just thought of this: does anyone have any recommendations for books that pay homage to the Golden Age of detective fiction? Or I guess just awesome detective/murder mystery/noir novels of any kind?

Have you read anything by Elmore Leonard or James Ellroy?

Currently reading The Sound and the Fury. I'm ashamed that I'm an English major about to graduate college and I'm just now reading it.

Just finished The Corrections. Absolutely loved it. Denise was probably my favorite of the five, maybe because she's the only one who was somewhat aware of her problems throughout most of the story, yet still kept repeating the same mistakes over and over again.

Has anyone read Freedom?

Thinking about reading 1Q84. Thoughts on it? I am intrigued but have heard mixed things.

Have you read other Murakami books? I talked to someone about that book earlier in this thread. It's a good book, but it has a lot of flaws. Kafka on the Shore, one if his other books, is vastly superior

No, I have not read his other books. I'll try and get my hands on that one, thanks for the heads up!
