    i like it cause it's unpredictable. when i get to the end, i'm always like what the fuckkk. i didn't like lullaby as much as any of the others, because the "wtf" part was kinda stupid.

    I'm on a classics kick because hey they are out of copyright and free! So I just finished "The Invisible Man" which was pretty sweet. Now I'm reading "Faust" which I'm not digging too much yet but I just started reading it last night.

    I like the fear and loathing in Las Vegas book. And the outsiders the outsiders is a badass book I bet alot of people have read that book.

    I recently switched to audio books, very comfortable! From the last listened was very surprised by the book by the author Hector Malot "Sans Famille". I recommend to everyone.

    If you like books with beautiful metaphors then you should go for books by John Green. Looking For Alaska is my personal favourite. Every book by John Green is unique and deep and I think everyone should give them a try.

    My ex turned me onto this book, probably the only good thing she ever did for me. I would love to see a film adaptation of "The Navidson Report". Not "House of Leaves", but specifically "Navidson". It has a lot of potential. As I was explaining this book to my current girlfriend, she showed me a movie called "Dave Built A Maze". It's a dark comedy, but features a similar theme about the interior being larger than the exterior. It's a little corny, but entertaining.

    Also, the ending of HoL had me fucked up when you find out who Delia is. We all know that photograph.

    Edit: "Be Here Now" is a phenomenal read and I have all of Ram Dass' stuff, taking up far too much space on my bookshelf with all the Jung and Leary. I'm no hippie, but a good read is a good read.

    All of the Dune books by Frank Herbert are my favorite books. I would love to find something similar.
