    3/4ths through Book 5 of Malazan. It's good, like all of the Malazan books (except GOTM), but the stark metaphor that is the Letheras to the US gets tiresome. Everything from the debt to the social structure to the mages complaining about how crazy their destruction is... just overbearing. I get that he wants to send a message but he should've been more subtle instead of just renaming the US Lethar.

    The series is called The Expanse. For those interested the author is James S.A. Correy. Its near-space (restricted to our own solar system) space opera. Neat characters, cleanly written enjoyable series so-far.
    I just finished Caliban's War, was good. How did the choose the name for the books? Seems a bit random.

    Just finished Wicked Bronze Ambition by Glen Cook, which is the most recent Garrett P.I. book. I was pretty frustrated with it since he killed off one of my favorite characters in the first twenty pages, and I'm used to this series being much more Noir/Comedy than serious/melancholy. That said, Cook is still an excellent author and the book was good for what it was.

    Uh...yes. Absolutely.

    Currently reading Racing in the Rain, My Life as a Dog.
    I like it a lot, I don't own a dog at the moment but the book is really emotional. My next book will either be Perks of Being a Wallflower (really enjoyed the movie) or Where the Red Fern Grows.

    Reamde by Neal Stephenson.

    A book revolving around the next big MMO after WoW, written like a spy novel by one of the most creative and fun to read authors I've ever come across. There's a whole lot to like about this book. After reading Reamde and Cryptonomicon (another Neal Stephenson novel), this guy is definitely in my top three favorite authors at the moment. Highly recommend the book, especially to MMO players.

    Wow, this many pages and no-one mentions Christopher Moore? This guy is one of the funniest, wittiest authors I have ever had the pleasure of reading. I have re-read Lamb at least 10 times, and I still actually laugh ut loud at parts. I highly recommend all of his books, but especially Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel and Fool. You won't be disappointed.

    Read Slaughterhouse Five today, my first venture into Vonnegut. Really good.

    Vonnegut is great. Since you liked it, I recommend you read Mother Night or Cat's Cradle at some point.

    As for me, currently reading Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness.

    Finished this one few weeks ago, quite nice read, but not overwhelming, some nice ideas overall.

    Then read Ubik once more, awesome book.

    And right now, The Time Keeper by Mitch Albom, quite interesting so far, really well written fable.
