South of the Pumphouse by Les Claypool was a pretty enjoyable read. Think of Fear and Loathing... combined with the lyricism and humor of Les' musical work.


i loved that book, it was a great read

currently i'm on 'lisey's story' stephen king

I've got 3 books on the go at the mo!

Before & After by Matthew Thomas, We neeed to talk about Kevin by Lionel Schriver and today, thanks to the recommendation a while ago in this thread, I started Fight Club - I've seen the film loads of times, but if this book is as good as Invisible Monsters (which it is apparently) is gonna be a fabulous read!!

Fight Club is an excellent read. I strongly recommend it.

Ive been reading Chuck Panaluik's 'Fight Club' and its better than the movie. Full of even more useless facts on how to blow shit up and seek revenge on your boss. Unfortunately I moved recently so I lost the book somewhere between here and there on the brink of another phsycotic episode.


I thought both were equivalently good; some of the setting changes Jim Uhls made were decent, like the first time they meet.



try "lullaby" or "choke"...both equally good...lullaby is definately more fucked up, if that's possible.  They will be making a movie or have made one of Choke with Sam Rockwell as the main character.  Fucking brilliant casting...see how they do the rest.

Ullyses by James Joyce... I know it's a "short" ( rolleyes.gif ) story but I'm not reading any books per se and it's quite good so I thought it merited a mention.

"lullaby" was my fave. i've read most of palahniuk's stuff but stopped after attempting "diary". just couldn't get into it.

i'm reading all the harry potter books now. i'm on number 4. really charming, fun and an easy read. wish i'd had these when i was 10!
