What are you reading now?


Recommended Posts

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.

What the fuck kind of books are you guys reading that require study guides and devoting years of your lives to? I am reading Russka by Edward Rutherford and I have not had to hire a support staff

Seems like a good day to start a biography of Pliny the Elder and  Younger that Claire got for me at Christmas.

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.

cool, gg kay is great. i've only read "lions of al-rassan", but I'm looking forward to reading more.
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. :)

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. ;)
