Waiting by Ha Jin. An interesting, if not fustrating novel set in 70's-80's China about a man who wants to divorce his wife to marry his girlfriend. But everytime he goes to see his wife about it, she agrees and then backs out at the last minuite. Since he only sees her once a year its really irritating.

Currently various books on Japanese and Horror cinema. A mixture of the two in some cases. Hurray for University! :lol:

Busty by Tom King. A Nexus book. :wink: Seriously, this guy is obsessed with breasts, and if I found out some guy was speculating on my rack as I got changed everynight, I'd report the fucker. Then I'd have his feathers ruffled by some friends. With baseball bats.

I'm reading the original novel version of Welcome to NHK, which is certainly a darker and more disturbing version than the Anime adaptation (which I'm also currently watching). Having both on the go at the same time is thoroughly depressing.

The Temporal Void, book 2 in the Void trillogy, by Peter F Hamilton.

This guy REALLY needs to learn about chapter breaks ;)

The final book should be out in 2010 :pop:

True History of the Kelly Gang by Peter Carey
Not my choice, it's on my English exam....the writing style is deliberately terrible, and the story is so hard to follow.

Also, I'd be reading 'The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya' if only the damn thing would be dispatched...

and a play: Oh what a Lovely War by Joan Littlewood for Drama..being forced to re-read it

EDIT:
Read 'The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya' in a single day

Felidae. A book about a cat who discovers a cat serial killer murdering their own kind. Excellent book. The style of the author fits a cat perfectly - bit of a know all, amused by humans but at times offended by them, and very curious.

Having finally finished Dreamcatcher after a year, I've started Darkly Dreaming Dexter. Got the first 2 in the series for the price of 1 in Easons.

Also listening to the Sherlock Holmes books at work. :D

Now that my eyes have definitely stopped giving me grief I've worked my way through:

Anvil of Stars Greg Bear Excellent
Handful of Stars Harry Harrison Short, fun and very old fashioned. Pipe smoking :lol:
Matter Ian M Banks Excellent if you can remember all the names
Saucer Stephen Coonts Silly sci fi fluff from a flyboy writer
Pushing Ice Alastair Reynolds Excellent again, dark though
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress Robert A. Heinlein Both old fashioned and futuristic >.<

Hmm there seems to be a bit of a space theme.

I'm considering a Terry Pratchett marathon too.

I may even start working my through Project's heavy weight recommendations.

I just finished reading Pride and Prejudice with Zombies recently. Excellent book. :lol: I especially enjoy the school style discussions of the subject matter at the end of the book.

I'm now just on the cusp of finishing Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress, a semi-autobiographical novel written by Dai Sijie. Again, brilliantly written for such a short novel.
