I am now re-reading A Song of Ice and Fire (currently on A Clash of Kings) after about a decade and subsequent frustration at waiting for the final installment.

After watching the first two seasons on HBO, I decided that I had forgotten too much and purchased the box set of the first four books. ADWD should be out on paperback by the time I finish AFFC...

Partial apologies then, lol. Hope you enjoyed the book overall.

It was one of my favourite books, but I haven't read it since high school.

didn't enjoy that curious incident book at all.

i'm still struggling through ASOIAF's first book. Really not a fantasy type of guy, but I am enjoying it. 450 pages in!

also reading "if i forget thee, jerusalem" (or "wild palms") by faulkner, as i'm a sucker for fiction from the american south.

enjoying both!

Reading a Storm of Swords by George R.R Martin.

That son of a bit** just ripped my heart out... Utterly... The Red Wedding has to be one of the most gut wrenching sequences ever (that and the Grey King betrayal in Lies of Locke Lamora).

Can someone please share my anguish? I feel so alone :sadno:

Still Life with Crows by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

I would strongly recommend all of their joint work novels to any reader. Pendergast is a truly amazing character.

Just finished reading 'A Long Way Gone'.

Really liked it and I would recommend anyone looking to read a book to check this out. Its a novel written by Ishmael Beah, the protagonist in the story, and he describes in some pretty good details what happened in his childhood and teenage years as a child soldier living in Africa, specifically Sierra Leone.

Midnight's Children by Salman Rushdie...what a weird book! The first half is super intensely literary and kind of boring, all about some family's back story, then suddenly it turns into a superhero story? Incredibly well written though, I can see why it won all those awards.

I've been very hesitant to start reading the Game of Thrones books, just because I'm afraid I won't be able to put them down and get ahead of the show.
