Going to get down to the local library later and see if I can find something that catches my eye. Haven't read in the past really but I want to start getting into it.

Just read the Empire trilogy by Raimond E. Feist. The trilogy is part of a huge collection of books called Riftwar Saga, but they can be read as stand-alones (the trilogy i mean not each book). Writing isnt bad and has a lot of plotting and intrigue, quite nice.

Also for those who like fantasy books I suggest reading David Gemmell books on the Drenai universe.

I've got a book shelf full of books\comics I've bought this year but haven't read yet so I've been trying to cut that down lately and hope to get through more over christmas. Read through this last night



I've had it since it came out but hadn't gotten around to it, now I'm sad the next trade isn't out yet because it was as awesome as always.

Just finished it. His prose was captivating because it read more like a great fiction than a researched non-fiction account. The first 3rd of the book was especially great as he had the dual storylines going between the Clutter's and Perry/Dick.

One thing that was kind of striking about the book was that it seemed so mundane and almost ordinary. Normally, a crime book becomes a "thriller" that plays to the drama of the situation. But Capote wrote simply the facts and told the story as it was, which made it a fascinating book about crime and American community.

"The Way of the knife"

Only a few chapters in. So far it's an interesting insight into the CIA and post 9/11 warfare. It makes me feel somewhat pessimistic about the World in which we live in though.

Just finished Elantris and Hope for Elantris by Brandon Sanderson which were great.

Also a mediocre short story called Safe Man by Micheal Connelly.



Now I'm halfway through Something More than Night by Ian Tregillis. Which is a Noir fantasy about angels and how one called Grabiel was murdered. The main character is on the case trying to figure out the culprits. 30's detective noir jargon a plenty.

Fitzgerald really does have impeccable style in his writing. The novel is a very good Künstlerroman where we see Amory Blaine (Fitzgerald) develop his voice as a writer through a series of failed love affairs. The way that Amory sees the world and the style with which Fitzgerald expresses that perspective is fantastic.

In the end Amory is disillusioned with the carrot that society holds at the end of the stick to motivated people. I think Amory has always been disillusioned but it takes him years to understand why. He refers to himself as a genius repeatedly because he is an "egotist" but it's just his way of expressing his detachment from the contemporary social structures.
