The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
Ummm, what? That book has like 500 pages.
Terry Pratchett - Wintersmith.
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk
I went to the library today and picked up "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, "Brave New World" by Aldous Huxley, and "Banned in the USA"
I had no idea it was based on a book. This is so cool.
Well if scripts count as books I'm reading 'The Usual Suspects'.
Country of Origin by Don Lee
Stupid White Men by Michael Moore
I love it!
Yellow by Don Lee
The Sanctuary by Raymond Khoury.
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides
Ham On Rye by Charles Bukowski
Frankenstein: The Modern Prometheus by Mary Shelley.
I've gotta read it for Literature next year, and this is a great excuse to read the book.
The Confusions of Young Torless, by Robert Musil. It "uncovers the bullying, snobbery, and vicious homoerotic violence at an elite boys academy." We're reading it for Lit HL. OMC.
And @ RC (Rockchick), I read Twilight in a matter of hours, it's really not that difficult. It's not like the language is very sophisticated.
The World According To Clarkson v. 3 "For Crying Out Loud!" - Jeremy Clarkson
@ Malice: It isn't and that's not what I meant at all. It's just that it takes me a little bit more than that to finish a book, so that's pretty much why I was somewhat surprised. I guess it depends on how much time one is willing to spend on reading per day. Though I really don't see how a books language would affect the time you spend reading it.
I've only just started reading Lord of the Flies by William Golding.
I always seem to forget to post in this thread.
The Zahir of Paulo Coelho!
Check out the author guys...His books are superb!
I don't know if this is what you thought she meant, but she didn't mean language, like English or French. What I understand her meaning to be is that, if you can read, you can read the book in a couple of hours, because it's not going to use gigantic words or odd wording, you know? At least, that's what I got from what she said.
Anyway, I'm reading Halo: Contact Harvest.
I know what she meant, though I'm not quite sure you got what I meant, lol. I wasn't talking about language as in language, either. Just saying that even though the book didn't use "gigantic words or odd wording", it took me about 10 days to finish.
