Just finished a short novel by murakami. Sputnik Sweetheart. A page turner as always, never a dull moment.

Havana Nocturne.

I'm about a hundred pages in and I'm really digging it. He's not the best narrative writer. I read his Paddy Whacked too, and felt that was a bit dry in spots too. But it's loaded with info. The guy really does his research.
And this hits on a bunch of topics that interest me. Cuba. That era of the mafia. The political connections. That era of casino houses. It so far gives you a pretty nice short history on a number of topics.

And oddly, this is a topic that I have a cursory knowledge of, but I'm still pretty well gripped by it. It's pretty much the true story or The Godfather II. And if you watched Boardwalk Empire, this gives you something of an accurate historical bridge connecting true story inspiration of that to the inspired by true events parts of The Godfather II.

Creative and interesting book that contains the little bits of wisdom I always enjoy from Lewis. He's got a gift for communicating his observations simply and honestly to make them feel obvious and unbelievable that they weren't already common though in your mind.

The beach is one of my favourite books ever, always reread it once every few years. I've had one the road on my desk with a bunch of other books for a few months now, will get there eventually.

I really dig Freud even though i question the validity of his methodology quite often. If you want some freudian big picture stuff check out Civilization and Its Discontents. It's his seminal work where he tries to extrapolate his analysis of the individual to a diagnosis of society at large. My favoirte book from him.

you read so damn much lol. I mean it as a compliment.

Yeah, I pretty much cut TV, with a few exceptions of course, and video games out of my free time to make room for reading lol. I'll have to check that one out. I actually went to Barnes and Noble to get this one because the used bookstore I go to mainly has fiction and they only had 2 works by Freud. Assholes lol.

reading....? i'd rather jackoff a tiger in a phone booth

nothing is more depressing and boring than to read... unless its something that really interest me... like martial art books... books by bruce lee and so on... something that truly means.... books by great men..... not just some random ass "glory days" by wilhelmina wilhelmson shit.. i'd rather watch a movie instead...
