A tip when you read Carpe Jugulum - you need to read the Feegle parts out loud. They make more sense that way. ;)

I have tried so hard to enjoy The taken by Dean knoontz but after two weeks of reading and I'm barely 100 pages in and this the second attempt at this bookI have to bite the bullet and put the book in the charity bag. I haven't read Carpe Jugulum for ages a change of style will definitely help me

Is Koontz still a bit of a slasher horror writer. :?:

I sort of see them as supernatural thrillers
there isn't that much in the way of blood and guts

Just finished Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch, and starting Moon Over Soho. Really enjoying them so far.

Iain M. Banks' Feerum Endjinn is a lot like that too.

Recently read the first volume of the Akira manga, and am now 3/4 of the way through a really weird and disturbing, but good, novel called vN: The First Machine Dynasty by Madeline Ashby. vN, BTW, stands for 'von Neumann', which should tell those familiar with the term something about the subject matter... :?
I've lived for over 2000 years, and not all of them were good ones. I've made many mistakes. And it's about time I did something about that.

I'm reading 'A Prayer for Owen Meany' by John Irving...very strange, particularly as I'm reading about Christmas time in the book at Christmas time :think:

Anyone else read it?

My 16-year old son read it for school and said it was one of the best books he ever read. My wife is reading it now and loves it as well.

I'm reading American gods by Neil Gaiman. Excellent read!
