I was going to start another thread for this but I think I'll just ask here. I've been trying to remember the name of a book that was recommended to me a while ago. The story's told from the perspective of a mean, bitter old woman whom the book is also named after. I'm pretty sure it's an older novel but I'm not sure about that. Also the word Aunt might be in the title but once again I'm not certain.

I really want to read Catch 22. It took me a long time to sit down and watch the movie which I loved. Once again though I'm sure the book is tons better.

I just finished Look to Windward by Ian M Banks about 5 minutes ago, it's the second last in his The Culture series, the last being Matter, which I have ordered and am hoping it arrives here soon.

I guess I've got a few days to kill before it gets here, so I'll probably slip back into pointlessly reading War and Peace, or some boring shit about economics, knowing my next Sci-Fi fix is just around the corner.

I just finished The Law of Nines by Terry Goodkind. I am surprised how far after his original series he went with this. While I liked it, I thought the ending was far too abrupt and I would have liked to see the story dragged out to a three book series like he did with the Chainfire storyline.

Breathers: A zombies Lament. Excellent book, thought it was going to be terrible. It is however quite good. I'd recommend it.

I might have that book. All I remember is when I read it I thought to myself, 'He told these jokes in his stand up already'

One of the few books that was adapted to a movie perfectly. I swear that the movie is word for word.

^ That's what I've heard, I've only seen the opening 20 mins of it and that was years ago. Probably going to watch it when I'm done reading it.

Its just one of those movies that I'm sure its good but everyones raves about it so I feel inclined to not watch it.
This also goes for:
Memento
Godfathers
Gladiator
Troy.....pretty much any sword and sandal movie in the last 15 years
King kong
A bunch others

When I'm done reading fear and loathing in las vegas I might read the rum diary or finish 1001 nights

B as in Beauty by Antonio Ferreras (another lame fat girl finds self esteem novel, oddly not written by a woman)

The 'about the author' blurb was funny. A first novel by the performance artist know as "Dr Truth" who sets up booths to answer peoples questions with brutal honesty.

I'm reading The Complete Stories by Flannery O'Connor and I'm ashamed that I haven't read any of her writing before. I am thoroughly enjoying it.

Flannery O'Connor is great. Another southern, female writer from that time period I like is Carson Mccullers.

Tried to read The Road by Cormac Mccarthy but I couldn't get into it.
