    Default Re: What are you reading? Book discussions and reviews

    Nice. It's almost like watching Akira for the first time.

    Silmarillion is still my favorite Tolkien work, if Amazon does make anything based on it I'll be watching it.

    I've just picked up and read the IDW Ghostbusters Total Containment and absolutely loved it! It captures the spirit of the movies and left me wanting more. I've just got to try and find Mass Hysteria next - which by the looks of it seems nigh on impossible. I wish I'd seen these when they first came out.

    Looking forward to Batman, Last Knight on Earth. Seen the intro so far and it's glorious.

    Some pretty interesting accounts, especially ones from old letters/docs from the 1800's.

    Re-reading "Peyton Place."

    I remember hearing about it in the Billy Joel song "We Didn't Start the Fire" and always wondered what the big deal was.

    I read it back in college, in the late 90s, and it was tame as hell. I guess in the 50s it was quite a scandal. But I remember there was one phrase, one passage, that I really loved.

    I couldn't remember that phrase all these years later so I'm re-reading the book and hoping it jumps out at me when I see it. I'm halfway through and so far, nothing. For all I know I blew by it and it made no impression on me.

    It really is a bland book...shocking for the time maybe, but nothing special at all now. Not even particularly well-written. I hope I find the phrase though. If I find it I'll share it here. Most likely it was some cheesy overly romantic crap that spoke to me profoundly as a young man. Well, now I'm a bitter cynical middle aged grump so no wonder I can't find it.

    ^^Interesting take on a re-read from your younger years.

    The only books that I can remember reading when I was young that I can say I like and can read now are Lord of the Flies and Frankenstein, that was in H.S. I can't remember what I read in college. Books that made a lasting impression came after I left college.

    Genesis done, Abraham --> Isaac --> Jacob.

    Women are deceitful, lots of 1st cousin incest and seems to be run of the mill to sleep with maidservants and prostitutes. Joseph dead.
