It is hard to grok. I am around the 200 page point, they are about to ask Smith about his ability to snap people out of existence.

It is good, but I was expecting a bit more. But there is still over 400 pages so there is still time.

The John Adams mini-series on HBO has steered me toward the McCullough biography, so I've been working on that.

Spoiler: America gains independence, Adams becomes President. Shhhhhhh!

Call this semantic, but technically right now I'm reading a thread entitled "What are you reading?"

Currently I am reading the tale of the body thief. I finished its prequels last week. Really good book, and it seems to be the inspiration for a lot of WoD stuff.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I damn well enjoy the book. Well....we are skipping certain parts of the novel that aren't important. :)

I'm also watching it in class.

I've read Blindness, and now I'm finishing Seeing, both from JosÚ Saramago.

An overall view on the plots: On Blindess, an epidemic of blindness starts, and the whole society, frail as it is, collapses. Then, as the plot goes on, the author ponders on the weaknesses of men and whether we are already blind or not. There's a movie being filmed for this one.

And on Seeing, as everyone decides voting blank, the following government is taken as illegitimate. Then again, a whole web of thoughts and pondering is woven.

Ah, by the way, read these, now.

I'm reading a book about spiders...



Did you know that they dance and sing in order to mate  (Or squirm about and chitter, if you prefer)?
