Japanese author, probably has IQ of 180+. Probably some brilliant stuff you're reading.

Yeah American Gods have basically gotten me intrigued in Gaimans works. I wouldnt mind an A.G. knock off lol.. I liked it so much that Ill take anything that even remotely resembles it, as long as I get Gaiman's narrative style behind it.

I was wondering about Neverwhere and Stardust.. Im hoping if I get to read them, that they arent too kiddy in their content.

People need to get their asses into the American Gods discussion thread on goodreads. I'd like this to turn into a nice little book club.

Currently reading Power Rules by Leslie H. Gelb on how to effectively utilize American power in foreign policy. Great book so far, pertains to my major.

I've recently had a random inspiration to read lots of books including many classics...but don't have time as of now because of school. Will commit during winter break!

It's for my class, but it really is a fascinating read. I have always been interested in China, and interested in how we perceive and interact with them.
