What are you reading?

Post by Dok Zombie on Sun Feb 13, 2011 5:31 pm

Simple enough, what are you reading at the minute, if anything.

Are you enjoying it? Would you recommend it? Etc...

I'm (finally) nearing the end of Moby Dick. It's been a real slog; reading it mainly on my lunch break at work means only getting through a little each day but since I'm nearing the end I've started reading it more in my spare time as well. I've really enjoyed it so far and while there are some very drawn out sections of irrelevant bollocks, they are contrasted nicely with some sheer bad-assery, case in point...

Spoiler:
"As they narrated to each other their unholy adventures, their tales of terror told in words of mirth; as their uncivilised laughter forked upwards out of them, like flame from the furnace; as to and fro, in their front, the harpooners wildly gesticulated with their huge pronged forks and dippers; as the wind howled on, and the sea leaped, and the ship groaned and dived, and yet steadfastly shot her red hell further and further into the blackness of the sea and the night, and scornfully champed the white bone in her mouth, and viciously spat round her on all sides; then the rushing Peqoud, freighted with savages, and laden with fire, and burning a corpse, and plunging into that blackness of darkness, seemed the material counterpart of her monomaniac commander’s soul."

Now if that aint the most metal thing you've ever read in a 160 year old book, I don't know what is.

I've been reading Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas series. It's really fucking awesome.
Unfortunately I don't read as often as I should so it'll be a while before I finish it.

Not something I've come across myself. On an unrelated note, is that Rammstein I spy in your avatar?

It is. I saw them live on Friday, and can now happily kill myself.

That's the one.

Saw them last year and again in the summer at Sonisphere. Amazing show both times, it helps that LIFAD is the best thing they've released in years.

My favourite is Reise, Reise, personally, but LIFAD is a damn fine listen. I was pissed off because I didn't have a lighter for Frühling In Paris Smile

I'm currently on book 4 of an 11-part alternate history series where the Confederacy won the American civil war and became it's own nation. It kicks ass.
