Finally, I finished A Game of Thrones. Nice to read, I like the different points of view, but I'm not sure I'll be able to read many more "swollen breasts" without screaming

Before starting A Clash of Kings at the end of the week, I'm going to read very different books. Right away, I started The Art of Racing in the Rain.
With the settings on my Aura HD, the first chapter is 6 pages long. Well, each and every one of those pages made me weep and I was wondering if I could go on with this book. After this chapter all is fine and this book is really funny and interesting so far.
Beware all of you who had a beloved little furry friend.

I just finished The Man Who Folded Himself by David Gerrold. Amazing sci-fi book.

I also just noticed lately I keep finishing books in 48h or less, it's not my fault they are so entertaining.

Now you're making me think I should give it a go after all .

This is near the top of my TBR pile. Maybe I should bump it up a couple of places.

Just finishing off Deeply Odd (ok, but not particularly noteworthy), and am starting Scare Me by Richard Parker on audiobook:

Quote:
When did you last Google yourself? Wealthy businessman, Will Frost, gets woken in the middle of the night by an anonymous caller, asking him exactly this. When Will goes online, he finds a website has been set up in his name, showing photographs of the inside of his home, along with photographs of six houses he has never seen before. In the first of these strange houses, a gruesome murder has already taken place. Will is then told that his own family is in mortal danger. The only way he can keep them safe is to visit each of the houses on the website in person before the police discover what has happened there. Seven houses. Seven gruesome homicides. Seven chances to save his daughter's life...

Seriously, it was better than expected. I really like the idea of following the story through several people minds. You know when there's a conflict, usually everyone believes to be well within his rights. Well, here it's war and depending how long ago you look, many different families can claim the throne. I like this (kind of) geopolitical side.

It's good, but it's a rather blatant rip-off of Heinlein's "All You Zombies".

I'll keep an eye out for it on sale, perhaps. Not sure the genre really appeals, though I do sometimes dip into fantasy if the reviews are compelling enough. And I don't know if I have the stamina to follow a lengthy series like this one. I absolutely loved his Fevre Dream though, one of my favourite vampire books.

I reread that earlier this year, after discussions about it in the forum, so not sure if that is going to spoil The Man Who Folded Himself. I'll give it a go anyway, methinks.

I just finished dual Hugo/Nebula award winner The Forever War.

The book was OK I guess. I'm not sure why it was considered dual award winning, unless it was do to the no so hidden moral message at the end.

Not sure what I'll read next, but I have been itching to re-read the Harry Potter series... although I don't generally re-read stuff. Does anyone know if you buy the full Harry Potter book collection on Amazon if it is one single fill with all the books in it, or one file per book? (asking for whisper sync purposes).
