    Yeah, I've read some stuff by him. Details are blurry though... But I am reading 1Q84 books one-three. I can't decide if I like it yet. What's your opinion it on it?

    I just started reading this a few nights ago. Need to read more before I can form a decent opinion on it, but the writing is, as usual, top notch at least.

    The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King. Very interesting so far.

    I personally think the book was pretty awful. Lol.

    It may be just because I'm biased or it's because the guy relies too much on western influences and culture and that's not what I'm looking for when I read Japanese literature. Also because there are soooooo many loopholes in the story, it's not funny.

    Daniel Silva's "A Death In Vienna" which is one of many 'Gabriel Allon' novels about an Israeli assassin/paint restorer that works for Israeli intelligence. If you like the kind of books where the main character is just full out bad ass then I'd recommend them all. Each book exceeds my expectations every time.

    I've read Flanagan, Kampusch and Mystify the Magician, now I'm off to Entertain the End (the sequel to Mystify the Magician). Also, I'm rereading Harry Potter again, but this time in English as Flagrare found me the .pdf files :D I'm grateful to death.

    So, now I'm reading Entertain the End and the Sorcerer's Stone.

    I couldn't finish it, haha. I still think the writing itself is good, but the stories take too long to go anywhere. It needs some editing.

    I'm now reading Kafka's The Trial.

    Right now I´m reading The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice (what a shame it hasn´t been translated into Czech and almost no one knows it here!), then I want to read Orwell´s 1984 and Zusak´s The Book Thief.
