    Awesome, I suppose. But I'm more preoccupied with when he and Denna are gonna do the do.

    I'll read Slow Regard after I get a couple of other TBRs out of the way and I get my copy back from my friend.

    Looking forward to the next novel, but I'm a little confused as to how Rothfuss will tie this up with just a single novel?

    I mean, he has wonderful pacing and it seems out-of-style for him to wrap up the series in only 1000 more pages?

    Anyone else concerned?

    Anyone read "White Noise" by Don DeLillo? I've heard nothing but rave reviews from my friends about it so I'm getting it as soon as I can afford new books.


    I'M A COMMUNIST

    I got by Kaiten.

    Read Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. It's an apocalyptic story with interesting characters. It has got only praise from both critics and writers. A really good read.

    Haven't read of it and I don't think I've heard of it either. Will keep it in mind though.

    Is it Young Adult novel? I have to say I'm pretty sick of post apocalyptic YA stuff.





    Anyway, I finished reading Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier.

    This was a great read. There is this really strange/eerie feeling to the book the entire time. Like something is very wrong and disturbing, but you aren't sure of what it is. Another interesting thing is that you never once learn the name of the protagonist. And she's the narrator, so it's just quite strange. A quirky, wonderful classic. I would suggest it, especially if you like things like Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, or those sorts of stories.


    I also just finished the first novel in the Artemis Fowl series. I never got around to reading this as a kid/teen, but grew up hearing about it all the time. I made a deal with a girl at work that if she read the first The Name of the Wind novel, then I would read the Artemis Fowl series. And I'm pleased I made the deal!

    Artemis Fowl is a cleverly written fantasy. The main character is a little shit and closer to a villain than hero, not to mention the humor in the book is funny and witty. It's almost like reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy for a slightly younger audience.

    I wouldn't classify it as such. It has an interesting premise for a post-apocalyptic novel and when I read it months ago, I deeply enjoyed it. I suggest you to give it a try.

    I have - years ago - I think it's a good book, but personally speaking I believe other Don DeLillo's books are better. Maybe White Noise is a good entry point for those who never read Don DeLillo before.

    Ive seen Deathnote, deadman wonderland, fairytale, shigurui, ao no exorcist, beelzebub, samurai champloo, code geass, devil may cry, Hakuouki, monster, blood plus, gantz. Basically, something with demons and gore.

    It's not YA stuff. While it's post apocalyptic story it doesn't have the usual story telling (except the virus killing everyone part). Please give it a try.
