the copy of the trial i'm reading is translated by willa and edward muir. It's a very old copy from the 40's. It was given to me by an austrian woman I know and she said that it's a fine translation from the german however it's the only version I've read so I have nothing to compare it to.

I'm reading it for the first time after having just read the castle a month ago. Although I haven't finished the trial I have to say that so far I like the castle more. We'll see if that opinion changes as I finish the last 100 pages.

Almost finished with Night Watch, volume 1 of that trilogy by Sergei Lukyanenko:

...is excellent. I was going to read them in synch (both the Russian version and the English version), but I'm already almost done with the first book.

All of his stuff is great, but my favourites are Tigana and The Fionavar Tapestry... though I am really likeing Ysabel. :)
Robert Heinlein - Friday
Great book! Probably my second or third favourite Heinlein. My favourite has always been Job: A Comedy of Justice. It is too hard to pick between most of the others since everything that he wrote in the 60's, 70's and 80's is so good. :)

Anansi Boys is great, as is American Gods... I'm trying to figure out which book of his to get next. :)

Check out Neverwhere if you haven't read it, its one of my favs.

It's a big change from my normal light reading (John Ringo's books for example), the style's quite different and there's a lot more layers & subtlety so it takes some concentration to keep everything sorted in my head. I'm liking it so far, the political intrigues can get a bit tedious though.

Ysabel was great and it turns out [didn't realize until nearly the end] that it is sort of a sequel to The Fionavar Tapestry.

Just read Race Through TIme by Piers Anthony and really liked it, starting on a couple Marion Zimmer Bradley Darkover books soon. ;)

Just finished The Deathly Hallows. I'll reserve comment until others have had the proper time to read it.
