Soon grasshopper, soon.

What's the matter anyway, too much evidence shown to back up what I say as true?

At any rate soon. You kids have taken a severe KOK style beating.

Keep it bundled in one or two threads. Post a million links in some "truth" thread, and leave all these others alone. That's all I'm saying. Pollution, man.

Not a fan, but I've been to Chesil Beach. It's nice, they have fossils.

I'm reading:


It makes me clever because when I say I'm reading Theroux it makes me sound like I'm reading Thoreau.

Very clever, Simon.

McEwan has a little note appended to his book stating that the building in which most of it is set does not exist, so readers shouldn't go looking for it.

P.S. How can you not be a fan? He's the greatest living Brit.

Am reading Atonement thanks to Jim who's brought me a caseload to catch up on. Sorry no typo. Only went cos it's made by Joe Wright. Do yourself a favour and get Pride and Prejudice on DVD and listen to the whole of Joe Wright's commentary track. I promise you, your very own appartment in Swoon City. Already got two neices and a best friend in love with him. Just googled him. Damn, he's good-looking to boot.

I was just wondering if the movie Atonement was based on the book. Thanks for clearing that up. Awestruck loaned me the book and I haven't read it yet. Is it good, Kathryn?

I've got to hurry and read it so I can see the movie.

Don't see the movie. Movies fuck up the language, the narrative, the whole fucking thing.

Is it a good book? It's one of the best books ever written.

Tro, your news may be even worse than the long-ago announcement that Demi Moore was cast as Hester Prynne, from which I am trying to recover 15 years later.

Kathryn, I'll have to civilly disagree with you; McEwan is good, not fantastic.

I just finished Philip K Dick's The Man In The High Castle. I liked the construction and style very much, but was a bit bemused by the (no) ending. It's the first of his I've read though, so that's probably my fault. Will probably read... Father And Son by Edmund Gosse next.

Idiot.

PS - that was Cheeseman talking, not Tre. I daren't speak for her...

Tolstoy is dull, McEwan is over-rated and Simon needs to log out on this laptop more. You notice I never post as him, hmm?

Just started a book club for some of my students at college, we're reading Bram Stokers Dracula to start with.

Idiot.

i just finished "i love you, beth cooper" by larry doyle. it was a fun read. simply a story, nothing more to take away from it than a few laughs, but it was a good time.

now i'm on to "zeitgeist" by bruce sterling. my father-in-law has been hyping it to me, so i picked it up at a used bookstore last week.

then i have a few tom robbins books lined up, and the last 2 "foundation" books.

starmesimon I still love and miss you (plural) and so disagree about McEwan, who is the greatest thing about being British!


Just finished re-reading Madame Bovary and did so only for the great descriptive writing, not the uninteresting characters. Anybody else like Flaubert?

I'm reading this self help book about your average, everyday stereotypical American.


------------------
ďAs civilizations become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which public opinion may be regimented. With printing press and newspaper, the telephone, telegraph, radio and airplanes, ideas can be spread rapidly, even instantaneously, across the whole of America.Ē - Edward Bernays
