    That's a good one. Card is often quote worthy. He has habit of being profound.

    I recently finished The Notebook and The Wedding by Nicholas Sparks. What tear jerkers!

    My reaction to The Notebook was very negative when I read it. I didn't really buy the "love story." It seemed like so much of a patent male fantasy. The characters just didn't ring true for me. I'm glad you liked it, though. For whatever that's worth.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    Hey to you too, spegs. Yeah, I haven't been hanging out around FoRT as much, though occasionally I'll postin the Books or Gen. Discussion forums. I also lurk on the Canadian Idol forum - though I'm missing the show from here in the States. Damn you, post-suburban America, I will end you. :rolleyes

    American Gods? The Notebook? All these newfangled works I haven't heard of. I'm a little oversaturated on literature this summer, though. Mabe something in the fall.

    I'm about to tackle "The Rules of Attraction" by Bret Easton Ellis. The movie is fun, and I figure the book is much crazier, ala American Psycho, which I really enjoyed.

    I finished "Sphere of Influence", after putting it off for a while. It was very good, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

    I also picked up "The Taking", Dean Koontz's most recent book. Not so great. I was a little disappointed in it.

    Right now, I'm reading 'To Kill A Mockingbird' again. I absolutely love the book - Harper Lee's a great writer.

    Ok...after reading my school yearbook for what seems to be the 30th time, and learning all about the graduating 12th graders I barely knew, I have finally started to read The Bad Place by Dean Koontz.
    Gustav Holst was right!

    Texicana you must not be faint of heart!
    Less Than Zero, which I think was his first book, scared the hell out of me. I had this lingering feeling for about six months - a real feeling of depression- brought on by the aura of the book. Of course I didn't learn my lesson so I HAD to read American Psycho. Disturbing. He is such a powerful, compelling writer, though. He reminds me of J.D. Salinger in a way.

    I was disappointed in it, too! I really "get into" most of Koontz's books, and I bought this one for a trip to Austin. I read it all in 2 evenings and at the end I just read the last page, closed the book, said "huh" and went downstairs to the bar for a drink.
