I like House Of Leaves, I read it freshmen year and It's still my all time favorite.

Last book I read was Jasper Jones and that was a great book. Oh, wait. No last book I read with The Curious Case of the Dog in the Night Time. It was pretty good. I should read way more. My Dad keeps at me to read this book called Neromancer or something. I may do.

I'm reading the Maximum Ride series by James Patterson.
It's about some kids who are part human part bird and they have wings and shit. It's an awesome series.

1984

is what I'm reading right now.

I've been diving into a lot of popular, highly rated, 20th century literature lately because I feel like I really missed out on a lot. When I was a teenager I didn't like reading much because we were always forced to read shitty books in high school which gave me a bit of an aversion against reading. Now I'm trying to catch up.

I hated Little Brother, one of the worst pieces of fiction I have ever read. It was trying to be cool and "hip" and just utterly failed at it.

I like "The Hot Zone" and "Rainbow Six"

I'm currently reading "War And Peace". I admit that this thing is very difficult to get through because there's a neverending series of things going on that you can't keep track of. In something that isn't a movie or a show that can be difficult, but dang it, this thing is wonderfully well written!

I get a raging boner from dystopian, government controlled futures so reading the book that started it all, We, by Yevgeny Zamyatin is very interesting for me. Without this book, Brave New World and 1984 would have never existed.

Reading Lies My Teacher Told Me right now, it's a pretty good nonfiction about frequent misconceptions taught in American History classes. Last fiction book I read was This Book is Full of Spiders, the sequel to John Dies at the End. Both are pretty amazing, they're just completely ridiculous. Some authors I would recommend would be Chuck Palahniuk and Douglas Coupland, both write books that are out of the ordinary.

I listened to an audio recording of I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream by Harlan Ellison. I would have read it but it's hard to find!

I've read the dog book and also thought it was pretty good. I think the third book you mentioned is called Neuromancer which is a book my dad has read as well...I think he has a copy in his bookshelf or something.

I really need to read more myself. It'd be at least somewhat better than playing games and doing the internet all the time.

At the moment I'm reading a lot of the more mainstream books (the critically acclaimed and popular ones)

Am reading Watching The English: The Hidden Rules of English Behaviour which is a semi interesting bit of pop anthroplogy that my sister lent me.

There are a couple of v interesting chunks but a lot of technical hot air as well.

Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh is a really good book though. Give that a read.

I recently reread Bioshock: Rapture, which I thought was a good stand alone novel, but really helped to provide good backstory for the game too.
